Packers Sign Andrew Quarless

10 9

The Green Bay Packers have locked up fifth-rounder Andrew Quarless, a talented, but troubled tight end from Penn State.

Quarless received an $183,000 signing bonus, but salary and length of the deal have not been reported.

He was the Packers first of two fifth-round picks (No. 154) and joins guard Marshall Newhouse (fifth), running back James Starks (sixth) and defensive end C.J. Wilson (seventh) as Packers’ draft picks who are under contract.

Quarless had issues with alcohol in college, receiving both an underage drinking citation and a DUI. However, he’s 6-4, 254 and has great hands.

Quarless’ addition likely spells the end of Donald Lee’s tenure with the Green Bay Packers.

Here’s a look at Quarless.

    maybe this is insurance for when Finley destroys the league this year, goes to the probowl, and wants a trillion dollars when his contract is up. typical Ted move. I heard Quarless is sober now…good luck in GB …

    Did he mean to say C.J. Wilson? Yea…Spiller went to Buffalo…Jermichel Finley will probly want a larger contract but Ted would be a fool to let him go anywhere else..

    damn, good highlights, i hope he can do the same for the Pack and i hope he keeps his conduct in good shape! when Finley creates a mismatch with Safeties, Linebackers, and Cornerbacks, Quarless will do his damage and really help the Packers offense! Just imagine Driver, Jennings, Jones, Finley, and Quarless on the field?? Man, thats scary stuff!!! But good job by the Packers and Ted Thompson

    With a singing bonus like that he has already made the team. Now they can roll Donald Lee’s 3mil into whatever upgrade Finley is going to get. And, be scary athletic at TE. Lee will get picked up by someone else and play for 3-5 more years.

    Nah, I say trade him. Someone will be willing to give a late round pick or two for him. If the Lions could get a first for Roy freakin Williams, we can certainly get a 5th or 6th for Donald Lee.

      Not many rookie tight ends can. Finley was a liability as a blocker when he was a rookie. Quarless will likely be the same and end up the third tight end to get a year of seasoning. Havner is your No. 2.
