Packers waive Quagmire

The Green Bay Packers have waived tight end Michael "Quagmire" Peterson, which shows that they're close to signing more of their draft choices.

The Packers continually have to be under the 80 man roster limit for players under contract, so nearly every draft choice they sign means another player having to leave the team.

Peterson likely ended up a little shorter than the Packers would have liked at 6-2. The other three rookie tight ends the Packers brought in are all at 6-5 or higher.

It's possible that Peterson would have played more of an H-Back role with the Packers, where they could have gotten away with a little less height, but it just wasn't in the cards.

Peterson also looked to be a special teams contributor. Look for some team out there with an H-Back role to take a chance on him, because there's several interested teams. "After the draft, the Packers wound up outbidding five other teams for Peterson's services," writes Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Peterson shares a large jaw line with the cartoon character "Quagmire."
