Green Bay Packers tight end and gun enthusiast Andrew Quarless was present at training camp for the first time on Saturday.
Quarless has been in Green Bay since training camp began, but was dealing with a family issue, according to Packers coach Mike McCarthy. Although he suited up on Saturday, Quarless did not take part in practice.
“Andrew obviously has been gone because of what him and his family have been dealing with,” McCarthy said after practice. “A) You have to make sure he’s okay. As far as his workload, treat it like it’s his first day. We had the walk-through at the end of the first two practices. We’re being really smart with his reps.”
It’s still unclear what sort of personal issue Quarless has been dealing with. However, it doesn’t appear to have anything to do with his arrest back in early July.
You do have to wonder where Quarless’ head is at right now. Judging by McCarthy’s comments, it’s probably somewhere besides football.
God has returned his gifts to Green Bay.
Good to see Q back in camp. He’ll work through his case of shithead and get on with playing TE for the Pack.
Q’s arrest could very well have something to do with missing camp. I don’t trust McCarthy’s word as far as i could throw him. And if anyone’s noticed, as each year goes by, he’s been eating himself into a disgusting bloated fat ass. You’d think being a head NFL coach he’d have some discipline in his eating habits. I mean, he’s representing the Green Bay Packers, look in the mirror dude.
As far as Q coming back. I think Q is what he is, and thinking he’s all of a sudden going to become the tight end we always dream of having is fools gold. We should have grabbed a tight end in the 2nd round instead of a 2-3 year project that very well might not pan out. But hey what do i know, maybe Rodgers can play until he’s 45.
Were there really some amazing gotta-have-’em TE in the draft this year? Maybe one or two? Serious question,I am not about to go look it up and the draft was awhile ago now so…
Maybe we took a pass on TE (a position we need to address but not the first time we have done something like that} an maybe we are going to wait for a heavier class of TE?
