Andrew Quarless Arrested on Gun Charges
Over the holiday weekend, Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless was arrested for discharging a firearm in public. Police report that they recovered the firearm after two shots were fired after an argument between a few men and women and that Quarless was attempting to hide the firearm in a potted plant.
After a rather successful off-season and praises by quarterback Aaron Rodgers, it appeared that Quarless would make the jump into fantasy relevance. This arrest has all but killed that. Although he has yet to be suspended by the league or team, it’s highly unlikely in the wake of similar events over the years that he won’t see a hefty suspension.
In Quarless’ stead, Richard Rogers will get the bulk of the TE work, but I’m still skeptical that he’ll contribute enough to the offense to be relevant on draft day. I’d imagine this will impact Eddie Lacy as he’ll have a small uptick in opportunities when Quarless may have been an intermediate target, and Jordy Nelson may have a few extra TD’s thrown his way in the red zone.
