GREEN BAY, Wis. -- With Ryan Taylor's role drastically declining this season, the Green Bay Packers released the fourth-year player Monday.

The best tight ends in Packers history

Tight end may be the most difficult position on the offensive side of the ball. You have to have speed, size, agility and good hands. On top of being a receiving threat, a tight end also has to be able to execute blocking assignments like a lineman; be it blocking an end head on or a linebacker downfield. No other position is as demanding which is why there are so few complete tight...

How Green Bay shapes up at TE

The tight end position will be one to watch closely for the Green Bay Packers this offseason. In 2013, the injuries to Jermichael Finley forced Green Bay to basically play tight end by commitee. Finley played just six games and caught only 25 passes. Finley’s backup was Andrew Quarless, who played all sixteen games. Both will be free agents entering this offseason. Other tight...

Tight End Must Be A Priority

As much as the Packers need help at safety, the No. 1 priority for next season has to be finding a tight end.

While Micah Hyde could switch from corner and Sean Richardson has...
