Just like James Braddock once was, Green Bay Packers tight end Andrew Quarless is M.I.A.
Braddock was missing in action in Vietnam, though. Quarless is only missing from training camp.
So, what’s the deal?
Mum is the word at 1265. Packers coach Mike McCarthy would only say that Quarless is dealing with a family issue and will be in camp when he’s in camp.
“Andrew Quarless is dealing with an extremely difficult family situation right now. He will be gone as long as he has to be.”
It seems pretty fair to say this has been shitty month for Quarless. Of course, part of that was his own doing.
As you surely know, Quarless was arrested for discharging a firearm following an argument over 4th of July weekend. There’s an NFL suspension forthcoming, unless this was perhaps all just a case of mistaken identity.
And that seems pretty unlikely.
