Packers TE Andrew Quarless was arrested in Miami Saturday morning after allegedly firing a gun twice during an altercation.

Quarless tried to flee the scene and hide the gun in a plant, but he was arrested and charged with discharging a firearm in public, a first-degree misdemeanor with penalties of up to one year in jail in Florida. No matter what happens in the legal system, Quarless is likely to face a significant suspension from the NFL. Nothing more than a mediocre talent, Quarless' days with the Packers could be finished.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky said Green Bay is "set on" playing rookie Damarious Randall at corner.

Though he played safety at Arizona State, Randall excelled when asked to cover the slot in college and has the athletic traits to be a perimeter corner. With Morgan Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix already locked in at safety, the Packers are hoping the coverage skills Randall flashed in college can translate to the NFL. Randall should push Casey Hayward for a starting job in camp.

Packers NT Letroy Guion is facing a civil suit over a 2013 altercation in which no criminal charges were filed.

The suit in Bradford County, Fla. has been filed by the boyfriend of the mother of Guion's child. It claims Guion struck the boyfriend in the head causing "physical pain, suffering and mental and emotional anguish" and that Guion allegedly sent threats of physical violence. This sounds like a classic case of someone coming after Guion's money. His agent vehemently denies the allegations.

NFL suspended Packers DE Datone Jones one week for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

The league is ramping up its Fourth of July weekend news dump. Green Bay's 2013 first-rounder, Jones played 385 snaps last season as a situational pass rusher. Jones has just five sacks through 32 NFL games. His absence won't exactly be a deal-breaker against Chicago in Week 1.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky projects the team to cut 2014 third-round NT Khyri Thornton.

Thornton was the 85th pick in last year's draft and spent all of last year on I.R. There have been reports he looked like a bust in training camp last summer. Buried on the depth chart, Thornton is going to need a big training camp and preseason.

ESPN Packers writer Rob Demovsky believes second-year WR Jared Abbrederis' roster spot could be in jeopardy.

The Packers are a tough squad to crack year in and year out, and Abbrederis missed his entire rookie year with a torn ACL. Fellow second-year WR Jeff Janis is "way ahead of Abbrederis at this point." Abbrederis will need to prove he's healthy and hope the Packers keep six receivers on the final 53-man roster.

Speaking at minicamp on Tuesday, coach Mike McCarthy declared second-year WR Davante Adams the "MVP" of Packers OTAs.

The 53rd pick in last year's draft, Adams has a firm grip on third receiver duties in an Aaron Rodgers offense, and has gobbled up first-team spring reps with Jordy Nelson (hip) sidelined. "He’s been tremendous throughout the OTAs," McCarthy said of Adams. "And he’s got more in front of him, too, so I think that’s what’s exciting. I think Davante has done a great job in the strength and conditioning. He’s been really, really good in practice throughout this deal. Davante, if you wanted me to pick an MVP or an all-star, he would definitely be atop the list."

Packers OLB Nick Perry revealed he underwent offseason shoulder surgery.

Perry added that the injury bothered him for almost all of 2014. When asked if he'll be ready for training camp, Perry balked at committing. Injury riddled and ineffective on the field, Perry has missed 16 games through three NFL seasons, managing nine career sacks. The Packers declined to exercise Perry's fifth-year option, so he's now entering a contract year.

Packers signed No. 30 overall pick CB Damarious Randall to a four-year contract.

Randall can play both cornerback and safety and has lined up mostly at outside corner in spring practices. The Packers used their first- and second-round picks on defensive backs after losing Tramon Williams and Davon House in free agency. Randall will push Casey Hayward for a starting job this summer.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky said QB Matt Blanchard is "so far ahead of Brett Hundley at this point."

Once considered a first-round talent, Hundley failed to improve his stock in his junior year at UCLA, falling all the way to the fifth round. Now he's a distant fourth on the Packers' depth chart behind Blanchard, a former undrafted free agent who has yet to appear in an NFL game. Scott Tolzien is locked into the No. 2 spot behind last year's NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers.

Aaron Rodgers said WR Davante Adams "has star potential -- for sure."

Rodgers, who previously went on the record saying Adams is "starting to reach" his "humongous upside," is talking up his second-year wideout every chance he gets. "Davante is a very polished player, and he has an excellent demeanor for a guy who’s going to be a star," Rodgers said. "I mean, he carries himself like a star – which is a very high compliment. There’s only been a few guys around here who’ve had that charisma: Charles (Woodson), Julius (Peppers), Greg (Jennings) always had it as a young player. But there’s very few guys that really ‘get it." Adams is going to erupt if anything happens to Jordy Nelson or Randall Cobb.

Aaron Rodgers singled out TE Andrew Quarless as someone standing out in offseason workouts.

Quarless had just 29 catches, 323 yards and three touchdowns last year. He's also been in the league four years already and will be sharing time with Richard Rogers. So forgive us if we take this Rodgers quote with a grain of salt: "Andrew Quarless has had a great offseason. I think he’s really, something clicked in for him at the end of last year and he’s been taking the jump. "

Jordy Nelson (hip surgery) participated in the Packers' annual spring softball game and reiterated that his recovery is "on track."

Jordy was admittedly surprised no member of the Packers' coaching staff gave him warnings about the hip before the game. "Not a single person said anything," Nelson told reporters. "I was kind of shocked." Nelson's surgery was described as a "clean-up" procedure that took place soon after the end of last season. Nelson also had knee surgery in 2013. He turned 30 last month.

The Packers will move forward with Scott Tolzien as the No. 2 quarterback.

Incumbent backup Matt Flynn was not re-signed. Tolzien looked like a fish out of water when he filled in for Aaron Rodgers in 2013, but he's reportedly improved since. He's impressed coaches with his improved mechanics at OTAs, even showing promise in the team's two-minute offense. Fifth-round pick Brett Hundley is No. 3 on the Packers' quarterback depth chart.
Jun 14 - 8:38 AM

Jordy Nelson (hip surgery) said his recovery is on schedule.

Nelson is participating in individual drills this week. "We're right where we want to be," he said Wednesday. "We set a plan at the beginning, and we're hitting every target. We feel good and like I said a couple of weeks ago, we'll be ready to go by training camp." Nelson turned 30 last month, but was clearly still in his prime last season. He has a very high statistical floor with Aaron Rodgers at the controls.
