Hearing teams inquiring with Packers about trade for TE. Packers feel position of strength. Brandon Bostick drawing attention.

Pats and/or 'Fins, I'm sure. I'd have preferred to move DJ Williams, but nonetheless.

He would be the gawd if they got something for him... But I would keep Bostick.

I think it's obviously gonna be Williams though. We'd get more value for him.

Ted once traded a backup longsnapper for a draft pick. "Da gawd" status is not in question.

QFT. Guess this means I can't predict Bostick to the PS.

fwiw D.J. apparently just lost his kick off coverage job to... Bostick...

I think D.J.'s gone by this evening...

Tavecchio and D.J. gone in the same day... sucks... they're both really cool guys...

Bostick has the most upside - closest thing to Finley on the roster.
I think the coaches really like him too.
Trade one of the other two

People have noted he looks scarily like Finley when he plays.

Other 2? Mulligan Quarless Williams Taylor?

Maybe it's Finley? That wouldn't be something I would like, personally. Same goes with Bostick and Mulligan. Hopefully it's DJ that's being traded.

I would say Williams or Taylor, neither have shown any special trait that would warrant a roster spot. Mulligan can block and Quarless is worth a look to see how much the injury affects him

I can guarantee it's not Finley. I would bet my life's earnings it's not Finley. Finley, Q, Mulligan and Bostick is my prediction for our 53 man roster at the TE position.

I think it would be pretty stupid to trade one of the best TEs in the league imo.

I don't see how it benefits our team.

Even if we were to trade him for a good player, it would just be getting rid of a good player for another good player likely at another position. Then that position would have questions.

I don't see how Finley is "one of the best TEs in the league" unless you are measuring them by salary or maybe the dreaded "potential". With his pay and ability his production just doesn't come close to matching up. Maybe it will this year, but we've been waiting on him to "get it" for a while now.
