Packers TE Quarless missed entire OTA program | 06/21/2014 2:58 PM
NewsPackers TE Andrew Quarless has not practiced at all this offseason.
Packers re-sign TE Andrew Quarless | 03/13/2014 2:04 PM
NewsPackers re-signed TE Andrew Quarless.
ImpactQuarless was surprisingly drawing strong interest on the open market. He reportedly had as many as eight teams after his services. The 25-year-old hasn't been much of a pass-catcher in his young career but should be given an opportunity to replace Jermichael Finely. Brandon Bostick will also be in the mix.
Andrew Quarless getting heavy interest | 03/10/2014 10:07 AM
NewsThe player rep for free agent TE Andrew Quarless says he's had discussions with eight teams since Saturday.
ImpactAs an all-around tight end with athletic upside, Quarless is a hot name. The Packers want him back and the Giants (with former Green Bay TE coach Ben McAdoo) are going after him as well. We don't know the other teams that have reach out to Quarless, but the Patriots, Bills, Lions, Falcons, Bucs and Jets are among the league's more tight-end needy teams.
Packers in 'regular contact' with TE Quarless | 03/06/2014 5:49 PM
NewsThe Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports the Packers have been in "regular contact" with free agent Andrew Quarless.
ImpactWith free agent Jermichael Finley's (neck) status still up in the air, the Pack could find themselves short at tight end if Quarless walked. Quarless has been linked to the Giants and former Pack assistant Ben McAdoo. Quarless is Rotoworld's No. 9 free-agent tight end.
Report: Quarless near top of Giants' TE list | 03/05/2014 9:49 AM
NewsSources tell NJ.com that free agent Andrew Quarless is near the top of the Giants' list at tight end.
ImpactIt's been a revolving door of late for the Giants at the tight end spot, with Martellus Bennett and then Brandon Myers both walking after signing one-year deals. There's an obvious connection to Quarless as new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, who was the Packers tight ends coach from 2006-11. He'd be a low-cost, in-line option that could pair with unproven pass-catching specialist Adrien Robinson in a two-headed monster. The Giants are also expected to kick the tires on Jermichael Finley and Garrett Graham.
Giants could show interest in TE Quarless | 01/17/2014 8:05 PM
NewsThe Newark Star-Ledger expects the Giants to show interest in free agent TE Andrew Quarless this offseason.
ImpactQuarless made 10 starts filling in for Jermichael Finley this season, finishing with a career-high 32 catches, 312 yards, and two touchdowns. He has a history with new Giants coordinator Ben McAdoo, who served as the Packers TE coach from 2006-2011, and could be a low-cost option to replace impending free agent Brandon Myers. Second-year TE Adrian Robinson is also expected to be given an opportunity to earn a bigger offensive role in 2014.
Quarless held to one catch for eight yards | 01/05/2014 7:58 PM
NewsAndrew Quarless caught one pass for eight yards in the Packers' Wild Card round loss to San Francisco.
ImpactQuarless ran a handful of checkdown routes in the flats, but primarily helped Green Bay's offensive line attempt to block San Francisco's overwhelming defensive front. Although Quarless turned in career highs across the board in the 2013 regular season, he is a plodding in-line tight end with very little long-range fantasy appeal. Quarless is also an impending free agent.
Andrew Quarless (ankle) listed probable | 12/28/2013 9:08 PM
NewsAndrew Quarless (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 17.
ImpactQuarless was limited in practice this week with an ankle injury. He'll be a low-end TE2 for Sunday's game against the Bears.
Andrew Quarless scores touchdown in win | 12/15/2013 9:32 PM
NewsAndrew Quarless caught six passes for 66 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Week 15 win over the Cowboys.
ImpactQuarless flashed extremely strong hands all afternoon, making contested catches. He either moved the chains or scored on five of his six grabs. The game was in stark contrast to Quarless' Week 14 performance, where he struggled to make plays in traffic. Despite the big day, Quarless will remain a low-end TE2 for the final week of the fantasy playoffs.
Andrew Quarless goes for 66 yards, touchdown | 12/08/2013 4:08 PM
NewsPackers TE Andrew Quarless caught six balls for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Falcons.
ImpactMatt Flynn continually gave Quarless chances to make plays in contested situations, and the lumbering blocking tight end delivered en route to the best fantasy day of his four-year career. Even with Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) potentially due back in Week 15, Quarless won't be a TE1 option against Dallas.
Andrew Quarless has one-catch day in loss | 11/28/2013 4:38 PM
NewsAndrew Quarless caught one pass for seven yards in Green Bay's Week 13 loss to the Lions.
ImpactQuarless has drawn all of eight targets over his past three games. He's not on the TE2 radar.
Quarless catches two passes in loss | 11/17/2013 9:46 PM
NewsAndrew Quarless caught two passes for 18 yards in Week 11 against the Giants.
ImpactQuarless has just three catches for 26 yards in two games since reeling in five passes for 34 yards against the Bears. He's not a fantasy option.
Andrew Quarless held to one catch | 11/10/2013 6:23 PM
NewsAndrew Quarless caught one pass for eight yards in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Eagles.
ImpactQuarless is not a pass-catching tight end despite his 5/34/0 line from Week 9. He's a blocker, and the Packers used Brandon Bostick as their move option in this one. Quarless does not belong on fantasy rosters.
Quarless leads Pack with five catches on MNF | 11/05/2013 12:34 AM
NewsAndrew Quarless caught five passes for 34 yards in Week 9 against the Bears.
ImpactDrawing another start in place of Jermichael Finley (spine), Quarless led the team with his five catches on eight targets. He likely would have been credited with another catch on a third-and-11 pass that Quarless bobbled near the sideline. The Packers opted not to challenge the call, though they likely would have won it. The five grabs will likely be a season-high. Avoid Quarless in fantasy.
Quarless starts, has two catches | 10/28/2013 12:48 AM
NewsAndrew Quarless had two catches for 13 yards in Week 8 against the Vikings.
ImpactWith Jermichael Finley sidelined, Quarless started and was used strictly as a blocking, in-line tight end. He managed to secure both of his targets in the passing game, but doesn't have a defined role in the offense. Quarless can continue to be avoided in the majority of fantasy leagues.

Packers TE Quarless (knee) ready for camp | 07/23/2013 10:18 PM

ImpactQuarless missed the entire 2012 season due to knee surgery, but participated in both OTAs and minicamp. "Looks good," coach Mike McCarthy said.

He's the one guy that has shown the ability to play all four positions in the tight end playbook."
Andrew Quarless' rehab going well | 04/09/2013 11:11 AM
NewsCoach Mike McCarthy said TE Andrew Quarless (knee) "looks great."
ImpactQuarless sat out the entire 2012 season after completely blowing out his knee in December of 2011. He'll share blocking tight end duties with newly signed Matthew Mulligan.

NewsPackers TE Andrew Quarless' 2013 base salary increased from $575,000 to $1.323 million after he hit escalators in his rookie deal.
ImpactQuarless missed the entire 2012 season after tearing his ACL and MCL in December of 2011. He showed promise as a blocker in 2011, but he has just 24 career catches for 274 yards and a touchdown. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel recently said Quarless will get a chance to start in 2013, the final year of his contract.
Quarless to battle for Pack starting TE job | 01/20/2013 3:18 PM
NewsThe Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel says Andrew Quarless will get a chance to battle for the Packers' starting tight end job in 2013.
ImpactBeat writer Bob McGinn says Quarless will get a shot whether Jermichael Finley stays or not. Quarless missed the entire 2012 season after tearing his ACL and MCL in December of 2011, but his blocking prowess will keep him around. He hasn't shown much as a receiver in his two seasons, though.
