GREEN BAY - Former Packers tight end Andrew Quarless has been suspended two games for violating the National Football League’s personal conduct policy, according to a report by Ian Rapoport.
The suspension stems from an incident in July of 2015, when Quarless was arrested on allegations of firing two shots during an argument outside a parking garage in Miami Beach.
The police report said Quarless and another male were involved in an argument with two females around 4:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. Quarless was said to have taken out a .45-caliber handgun and fired shots into the air. One woman told police he did so “in an attempt to emphasize his dominance and manhood.”
Police said Quarless attempted to flee the scene and was reported to have hid the gun in a potted plant.
Quarless eventually entered a plea and was sentenced to a year or probation. He was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.
A former fifth-round pick by the Packers, Quarless endured an injury-plagued season in 2015 and appeared in only five games. He was placed on injured reserve/designated to return after suffering a sprained medial collateral ligament against the Kansas City Chiefs and had little influence on the offense all season.
For the year, Quarless finished four receptions for 31 yards.
Quarless, who became an unrestricted free agent in March, remains unsigned.
