USA TODAY Sports

Tight ends, position battles, and balls hitting people in the head highlight today's Packers links.

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Here's your daily link dump and news about the Green Bay Packers from around the internet. We have a number of stories about young players trying to make the team, either for the first time or after a couple of seasons. Also, people getting hit in the head with footballs! On to the links!

Bostick's hard work paying off as he makes strong case for 53-man roster spot | Packersnews | packersnews.com
Physically, Brandon Bostick might be the most impressive tight end on the roster. Here's hoping that translates on the field over the next two weeks and he earns a spot on the 53-man roster.

Finally back, time of the essence for Andrew Quarless - JSOnline
Quarless needs to make up for lost time, and fast. Where the backup tight ends sit in terms of a roster battle is anyone's guess.

Is Barclay the 'right' answer? - ESPN Wisconsin
Oh har har har, headline writer. But yeah, it sure looks like Barclay has been given the starter's job, at least in every way that matters (and yes, I'm saying that what's said to the media about position battles right now doesn't really matter).

Johnny Jolly vs. Josh Boyd: The Tale of the Tape | Cheesehead TV
"There are arguably eight defensive linemen worth keeping on the Packers roster this season, but can they really afford to keep both Jolly and Boyd around?" I say no, and Boyd gets cut with potentially a year on the practice squad.

The Bullseye on Aaron Rodgers’ Back Just Got a Little Bit Bigger | AllGreenBayPackers.Com
Cory over at Jersey Al makes a good point: why should we care if Rodgers isn't covering for receivers who screw up? Shouldn't we want a QB who expects perfection from everyone on every play?

What's Going On with Dezman Moses? - Lombardi Ave - A Green Bay Packers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.
The more I think about Moses, the more I think it's possible he could be a surprise cut after training camp is over. The biggest thing going for him right now is a lack of depth at outside linebacker.
