Brandon Bostick getting more first-team reps
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Packers tight end Brandon Bostick ran with the No. 1 offense during the two-minute drill Monday and caught three passes in the first five plays, reports ESPN.com. The website said Bostick "might be the Packers' closest approximation" to Jermichael Finley, who's trying to gain medical clearance following a neck injury.

Bostick apparently has moved ahead of Andrew Quarless and Richard Rodgers in the battle to be the primary pass-catching tight end. "He's super talented," backup quarterback Scott Tolzien said of Bostick. "He's a big body that can also move really well, so he creates a mismatch."

Richard Rodgers, Brandon Bostick make case to start
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Packers are trying to find a starting tight end this season, and two interesting candidates could be rookie Richard Rodgers and Brandon Bostick, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

The report says Rodgers did a good job "separating himself as an MVP of organized team activities," while Bostick has to lose weight. He is back from a broken foot suffered last December, but he showed up at 270 pounds.

"I have to get my weight under control, come back and my goal is to be the starter," Bostick said. "I won't settle for anything less. I'm going to compete and do everything I can to be the starter."

The competition for the starting job will come down to Rodgers, Bostick, Ryan Taylor, Jake Stoneburner, Andrew Quarless and rookies Colt Lyerla and Justin Perillo. The Packers also could bring back Jermichael Finley if healthy.

Quarless likely has the inside track to start, but he's dealing with an injury. That has allowed Rodgers and Bostick the chance to make plays.

"I definitely think I can do it all now," Bostick said. "Coach knows that. So sometimes I go in on blocking situations. It's whatever he wants. Whatever they need me to do, I can hold it down when I'm out there."

Richard Rodgers to be Packers' starting tight end?
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Richard Rodgers, a 6-4, 257-pound rookie out of California, "might have the inside track" to be the Packers' starting tight end, ahead of Brandon Bostick and Andrew Quarless, reports ESPN.com. At least once every offseason practice, Rodgers "made an eye-catching play in the passing game."

Coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers, who got more reps due to Quarless' absence, was "very productive." The report said Rodgers must show "he can be an effective blocker once the pads come on in training camp, but at this point he might be in the lead."

Richard Rodgers drafted by the Packers
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

With the 98th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Packers selected Cal tight end Richard Rodgers .

No relation to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the prospect totaled 39 catches for 608 yards and a touchdown in 11 games in 2013. He is known more for his receiving skills than for his blocking skills as he lined up in a number of places. Fun note: His father Richard Rodgers Sr. was on the Cal football team that beat Stanford on the "Band Is On The Field" play in 1982. 

Rodgers will battle for a spot on the tight end depth chart in training camp.
