If being a dumbass was the type of thing that got you disqualified from being an athlete, we wouldn’t have as many athletes.
Green Bay Packers tight end Andrew Quarless is a dumbass, but apparently that will not disqualify him from being a member of the team.
The organization has had very little to say on the matter. They released the boilerplate statement about how they were gathering information and that’s it. However, that handsome devil Rob Demovsky got a couple of sources — we presume the type of sources who work for the organization — to confirm that Quarless remains in the Packers’ plans.
We were really looking forward to another season of 29 catches for 317 yards and now we will get the opportunity to witness that greatness first hand.
In all seriousness, the Packers can’t really release Quarless after they re-signed defensive tackle Letroy Guion earlier this offseason. Guion was caught with a gigantic bag of weed and enough cash that made it impossible to conclude anything other than he was involved in a drug deal, back in February.
That’s not quite the same level of stupid as discharging a gun at 5:00 in the morning while you’re drunk and arguing with a couple of broads, but it’s in the same ballpark.
Can’t send the message that one guy’s stupidity will be tolerated and the next guy’s won’t.
