Dang. I really wanted him to stick around at least. Was the best blocking TE on the team hands down and was reliable t come up with big catches every now and again. Plus, a good follow on twitter. Sad

Funny guy and a great Twitter follow, best of luck Tom! Had some great moments this year! Hope he has a slightly bigger role with the Bucs.

We will get Quarless back and he is a way better blocker than Crabtree and more versatile also. But yeah Tom is a character, very cool guy!

For Bucs fans on Twitter, make him a priority follow. He's good people.

As for the football side of it, he was our best blocker at the position but never added much in terms of the pass game. Not to say he can't catch but he's limited by his lack of great athleticism. Basically, he's a solid football player and all teams have room for a guy like him.

The Packers chose not to re-sign Crabtree, he was a restricted free-agent and they didn't even give him the lowest tender possible.

Because Andrew Quarless. That would be why.

Quality high effort guy. Wont offer a lot in the pass game but a very good blocker and STer.

It means that the Packers could have tendered him a contract at 1.3 million to keep him as he has less then 4 years of service which makes him a RFA. Packers didn't tender him which made him an unrestricted free agent who could sign anywhere.

Very happy with this move as it lets us focus on drafting a receiving TE.
