Andrew Quarless caught two passes for 11 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 6 win at Miami.
With just seven seconds left and the Packers trailing 24-20, they split Quarless out wide -- something they rarely do. He ended up 1-on-1 with Phillip Wheeler and won the battle, winning the game for the Packers. Quarless is still safe to ignore in fantasy lineups. Oct 12 - 5:04 PM

Date:

Andrew Quarless had two catches for 19 yards in Week 5 against the Vikings.

Quarless played the majority of snaps in base sets, getting both of his receptions on check downs. He was able to secure his two targets after being held without a catch last week. As the in-line blocking complement to Richard Rodgers, Quarless can continue to be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Andrew Quarless had zero catches on zero targets in Sunday's Week 4 win at Chicago.

Confirming that his Week 3 mini-breakout was a fluke, Quarless airballed despite playing on 44-of-52 snaps. He's an in-line blocking complement to the guy the Packers want to be their pass-catching tight end, Richard Rodgers.
Sep 29 - 10:59 AM

Andrew Quarless caught 4-of-5 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Week 3 loss to the Lions.

Quarless' strong-handed grab on tight coverage in the end zone was the Pack's lone score of the day. He was the only Green Bay tight end to be targeted in the passing game. Quarless now has eight catches for 77 yards through three games, but remains off the TE2 radar.
Sep 21 - 5:58 PM

Andrew Quarless caught 3-of-4 targets for 26 yards in Green Bay's Week 1 loss to the Seahawks.

With "starter" Richard Rodgers slowed by a neck stinger, Quarless picked up the receiving slack. He could have had a bigger night, but had a 31-yard catch negated by penalty. Quarless isn't a viable TE2 as the Packers wait for Brandon Bostick (leg) to heal.
Sep 5 - 12:46 AM

Andrew Quarless caught one pass for a 6-yard touchdown in Friday's preseason game against the Raiders.

Quarless rotated in well behind third-round rookie Richard Rodgers, who appears to have sewn up the starting gig. Quarless, who has five catches for 64 yards and one touchdown so far this preseason, is not on the TE2 radar.

Reps between Andrew Quarless, Richard Rodgers and Brandon Bostick will continue to be divvied up.

Rodgers appears to have his nose in front as he started the preseason opener, but things are far from settled. Quarless brings more as a blocker and Bostick is the best in space. Ultimately, fantasy owners should expect inconsistent box-score production no matter who wins the job.
Aug 11 - 10:32 AM

An NFC North personnel man said he sees Andrew Quarless as a "No. 2."

As in, a backup. Quarless rested during the offseason program, allowing rookie Richard Rodgers to shine. Now Quarless has a battle on his hands, and he doesn't have the skill set to blow anyone away in a competition. "He's not a good in-line blocker," the personnel man said. "He's better in space. His overall effort can be up and down. I don't think he's the most physically tough guy or the strongest guy at the point of attack." Quarless isn't on the re-draft radar.

Packers TE Andrew Quarless has not practiced at all this offseason.

Quarless sat out OTAs and minicamp for undisclosed reasons. The missed time has allowed rookie Richard Rodgers to get an extended look with the first-team offense. It's unknown whether Quarless is dealing with an injury. He missed 2012 because of a torn ACL, but played all 16 games last season. The Packers re-signed Quarless to a two-year, $3 million contract in March.

Packers re-signed TE Andrew Quarless to a two-year, $3 million contract.

Quarless 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.
Mar 13 - 2:04 PM

The player rep for free agent TE Andrew Quarless says he's had discussions with eight teams since Saturday.

As 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 reached out to Quarless, but the Patriots, Bills, Lions, Falcons, Bucs and Jets are among the league's more tight-end needy teams.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports the Packers have been in "regular contact" with free agent Andrew Quarless.

With 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.
Mar 6 - 5:49 PM

Sources tell NJ.com that free agent Andrew Quarless is near the top of the Giants' list at tight end.

It'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.

The Newark Star-Ledger expects the Giants to show interest in free agent TE Andrew Quarless this offseason.

Quarless 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.

Andrew Quarless caught one pass for eight yards in the Packers' Wild Card round loss to San Francisco.

Quarless 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.
