The Detroit Lions announced Monday that they have released veteran TE Andrew Quarless.
This move prevents the Lions from creating a roster spot on their active roster for Quarless, who just served a two-game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. This stems from an incident in which Quarless was arrested in Miami in July of last year for firing a gun twice during an altercation.

Quarless was ultimately sentenced to one year of probation and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine for firing a gun in public. Quarless was also ordered to attend anger management and weapons safety courses.
Quarless, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Packers back in 2010. He played five years in Green Bay before signing on with the Lions last month.
In 2015, Quarless appeared in just five games for the Packers and caught four passes for 31 yards.
