While the rest of the NFL continues to focus on acquiring players from other teams, the Packers worked on another deal to retain one of their own.

According to the team's own website, tight end Andrew Quarless re-signed with the Packers this afternoon.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but according to Pete Dougherty it's a multi-year contract.

Following Jermichael Finley's neck injury against the Browns, Quarless moved into the starting lineup and gradually became a reliable pass catcher in the Packers offense. His consecutive games of six catch, 66 receiving yard, and one touchdown against Atlanta and Dallas played a large part in Green Bay sealing those wins. The Packers expect even more production in 2014.

With Quarless now in the fold, the Packers have now retained three of their free agents with Mike Neal and Sam Shields re-signing.

Update #1: Quarless' contract is worth $3 million ($350,000 guaranteed) for two years.

Update #2: According to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, the deal is broken down into the following:

Signing Bonus: $350,000
2014: $800,000 base salary, $200,000 roster bonus, $75,000 workout bonus ($1.25 million salary cap hit)
2015: $1.3 M base, $200,000 roster bonus, $75,000 workout bonus ($1.75 million cap hit)
