Lions Sign Former Packers TE Andrew Quarless, Place WR Andrew Caldwell On I.R.


The Detroit Lions announced that they’ve signed former Packers TE Andrew Quarless to a contract on Monday.

  • The Lions also placed WR Andrew Caldwell on injured reserve with a broken bone in his hand.

Quarless was just recently suspended two games 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 back. 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 testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this year.

In 2015, Quarless appeared in just five games for the Packers and caught four passes for 31 yards.
