Packers "confident" Quarless will stay out of trouble

In the fifth round of the NFL draft the Green Bay Packers selected Penn State tight end Andrew Quarless, a talented player with a long history of off-field issues. But Packers G.M. Ted Thompson says he made the choice only after making sure Quarless’s off-field issues were behind him.

“The kid seemed pretty forthright with everything that’s happened,” Thompson said, per the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “We feel confident that he’s on the right path now.”

Those off-field issues include a citation for underage drinking, a charge of driving under the influence and the discovery of marijuana in an apartment he shared with three other Penn State players.

Quarless says he hasn’t had a drink in two years and that he told every team that considered drafting him that he’s a changed man.

“I sat down with these teams and really spoke from the heart and let them know that I wasn’t that guy that I used to be, that I’ve grown from those situations,” Quarless said. “I think everyone was pretty pleased with the way I responded.”

  1. i sure hope he is being truthful with himself more so than with the Packers. if he develops like JerMichael, wow does Rodgers have options.

  2. Hopefully this is true that his problems are behind him. He sounds like he has upside similar to Finley’s. Anything to make Donald (hit him in a bad spot, right in the hands) Lee expendable. Double tight end sets with 2 athletes like Quarless and Finley would be pretty exciting.

  3. Underage drinking?? Driving under the influence??
    Poor bastard don’t have a chance. Going to a state where mothers regularly spike baby bottles with brandy to make the brats sleep. Ever wonder why WI is the drunkest state in the US? Just go check the DUI statistics. Don’t rely on my word.

  4. As a Packer fan from Central PA yes I said PA instead of Pennsylvania, haha This guy is awesome on the field but how he handles the big time I don’t know. The kid was smart enough to straiten his shit out his senior year and played great. So I hope he works out because the talent is there. Go Packers!!!!

  5. “TT made sure” that Quarless’s off-field issues are behind him. What a stupid ass statement that we have heard countless times before from countless troublemakers. I suppose TT will have Quarless hang with Johnny Jolly just to make sure, LMAO.

  6. The Packers simply do not draft troublemakers.
    They always research their picks well.
    The real question is if the kid can make the 53 player roster.

  7. On the one hand, given the entertainment options, it’s hard to get into trouble in Green Bay. On the other hand, maybe drinking is all there is to do.

  8. Yeah right. After the stand up examples coming out of that camp in Spencer Havner (DUI) and Johnny Jolly (drug possession)… hey wait, aren’t those two crimes exactly what Quarless was charged with in the past?
    Obviously not much is done to deter this sort of behavior when both alleged criminals still remain on the team.

  9. Underage Drinking

    5th Drunkest State: Wisconsin
    It should be no surprise that Wisconsin is in the top five. This state traditionally ranks high on any list that involves alcohol. Milwaukee was ranked the number one drunkest city by Forbes in 2006. On top of that, the United Health Foundation recently released a report ranking the 50 states in terms of binge drinking, and Wisconsin was the worst. Nearly a quarter of the population has reported drinking too much. They are also number one for driving under the influence. Stay classy, Wisconsin.

    Andrew Quarless…good luck.you will need it son…

  12. The kid has a problem with alcohol…..is going to Green Bay, WI the alcohol capital of the country and is going to hang with the likes of Jolly and Havner….some great role models. Statistics bear out the fact that “Sconies” drink to forget about life in Wi….there is nothing else to do. In every other state in the country, if a driver is sliding off the road he says “oh chit” but in Wisconsin they say, “here, hold my beer and watch this” LMAO

  13. “I think everyone was pretty pleased with the way I responded.” Quarless said. “So I think now, I’m going to call up Johnny Jolly and his friends, and just have a few drinks to celebrate.”

  14. People in Wisconsin are drunks? Minnesotans actually elected Michelle Bachman to a high office. Yeah no drinking going on there.

  15. I forgot the Vikings don’t have anyone on their team that has ever been in trouble. Aren’t 2 defensive lineman on the team up for possible 4 game suspensions this season? I must be wrong because they’re all choir boys over there, especially Jared Allen and Percy Harvin.

  16. Who was the Vikings number one pick last year again? It wouldn’t have been that guy with a history of pot use would it?
    Btw try to keep your child molesters in your own state. Getting sick of them coming here and raping our kids.

    No kidding. Also, the biggest drunks I ever met in my life were from Mankato MN, but I digress. The queens fans must be terrified of what the pack’s TE duo of Finley and Quarless will do to their weak sauce linebackers.

    ===================================
    First of all, Pervy, thanks for the complement!! Second, look up the more important stats douchebag:
    2009 Safest States to Live:
    No. 13: Wisconsin
    Wisconsin consistently ranks well below the national crime average, but it dropped three places this year, from No. 10 in 2008.
    Rankings in Crime (out of 50 states)
    (1 = Worst, 50 = Best)
    Assault: 36
    Burglary: 38
    Murder: 32
    Motor Vehicle Theft: 35
    Rape: 44
    Robbery: 28
    No. 18: Minnesota
    Minnesota scored in the top 20 for all crime categories, EXCEPT RAPE.
    Rankings in Crime (out of 50 states)
    (1 = Worst, 50 = Best)
    Assault: 39
    Burglary: 31
    Murder: 39
    Motor Vehicle Theft: 34
    Rape: 15
    Robbery: 32
    That rape category doesnt relate to the Love Boat right????

  21. As an FYI to the trolls (aka, Viking fans), Havner’s case has been returned to the CHP for additional review…so it’s quite possible no trial will occur. Not sure what will happen with Jolly.
    But people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones…didn’t the Mullet Man already serve a suspension for DUIs already?
    And more about throwing stones, who hasn’t been drunk in college and maybe driven when they’re not supposed to. In regards to the weed Quarless had, it was proven it wasn’t his.
    So keep flaming Viking trolls…call me when you guys get electricity up in Duluth.

    ————————————————-
    LMAO You think that scares us?? How about this……AD runs over your stupid D as always and then a fresh Toby Gerhart comes in and trucks Matthews into retirement. Best fear that cheese dicks.

  23. Don’t you just love the Vikqueen fans. As we Packer fans remember your now beloved QB Grandpa Farve went into rehab for drugs and alcohol. How quickly we forget Queenies!! Oh by the was since he really is a grandpa this year, Farve’s drink of choice will be Geritol.

  24. Any fan of the “Partyboat” Minnesota Vikings who’s criticizing a late round high risk/ reward draft choice needs to seriously re-think their life right now.
    This seems exactly like the Jermichael Finley pick 2 years. A big, quick, talented TE with a ton of upside but raw.

  25. I love watching Packer fans cite singular examples of bad eggs in MN, while the rest of us give stats to back up the problems in the entire state as a whole.
    Then they cite Viking players that don’t actually have CURRENT criminal charges against them. Just like they can’t cite any CURRENT Packer team success stories and frequently rely on the past as a crutch.
    Sadly these people are a dime a dozen.

    The real question is if the kid can make the 53 player roster.
    ———————————————
    Absolutely no worries there Bob. I saw every college game this kid played in, almost every home game in person. You guys got yourself a top notch receiving TE. He needs to develop his blocking ability some more, but in the field he is tough to cover, can catch almost anything, and has decent speed to get down field after the catch. With Arodg tossing the ball down the middle he should do well for you lot.
    Good luck AQ.

  27. Pervy,
    have fun with a RB that takes 10 minutes to get up to speed. What a waste of a high pick. Better backs were drafted three rounds later. Gerhardt got alot of attention because of his race and that’s pretty much it. He’s the same player as Ron Dayne. Same size, speed, and lack of acceleration which gets stats in college but in the NFL it doesn’t get you more than 3ypc. Anywho, Clay Mathews will simply take the ball out of his hands like he did with peterson. Have fun not winning the super bowl again this season.

  28. Nothing like kicking back on a Sunday with a case of cold brew and playing Wac A Packer on your stupid threads! Thanks Uncle Florio for the cheap entertainment!

  29. How ’bout we see if either one makes it out of training camp before we have ’em in the HOF.
    Nah, that would make too much sense. Let’s just go on calling each other names and talking about how bad the other’s state is. Yeah, that’s a lot more fun.

  30. last starfighter- Gerhart> Dane any day. Bet you anything you wish to lose. go watch him on Youtube….and cry he is a Viking! Not to mention our new freak qb/reciever who can jump higher in the end zone than Rice! You guys are toast!

  31. “Then they cite Viking players that don’t actually have CURRENT criminal charges against them. Just like they can’t cite any CURRENT Packer team success stories and frequently rely on the past as a crutch”
    Ha! Are you serious? Many posters have already reminded you of Jared “multiple DUI” Allen as well as Harvin who was so stupid he smoked pot before the draft and then the whole Williamsons debacle. Don’t forget your left tackle either.

  32. How ’bout we see if either one makes it out of training camp before we have ’em in the HOF.

    There, fixed that for ya.

    Two words, Najeh Davenport.
    Everyone drafts a kid who’s done some stupid stuff. Hell, the NFL is full of them, but no one drafts them like the Bengals.
    Not a Packers fan, but the Packers usually draft well. Other than the DUI, the other two offenses are nothing IMO.

  35. @ cusoman
    We finished one game behind the Vikes in regular season, made the playoffs–all with a new defensive scheme & a 2nd year QB.
    I’ll take that as a sign of current success. Vikes don’t have Favre last year, NFC North goes to GB. Enjoy it while it lasts.

  36. I knew Vikings dweebs were going to jump all over this guy. Hey, at least he didn’t test positive at the combine.

    ======================================
    Two words: Bryant McKinnie.

  38. Pervy,
    I love your posts. You bait people to attack what you say very well….
    Cusoman, some general stats for you:
    2009 ranked MN as the 6th…down from #3 healthiest state (congrats), WI rank #12, up from 17.
    Around 17% of MN adults admitted to binge drinking vs 23% of WI. However overall health in WI is on the rise vs that of MN which is on the decline. So statistically not a great deal of difference but the states are headed in different directions.
    The good news is that once the vikes move west the overall health of Minnesota should rise dramatically. I think it went up when Jared Allen went to Arizona recently ( couldn’t resist the singular example!
    I think the Pack has done alright…I hope they take the nest step this year though. You are right we do use 3 superbowls as a crutch sometimes. Sure beats viking fan using 2 regular season wins against the Pack as a tooth pick.
    Sincerely,
    A Dime A Dozen

  39. I think certain (I won’t name names) people here don’t seem to know who the all time NCAA leading rusher is. Ron Dayne, besides being a heisman trophy winner, is arguably the greatest college running back of all time. That said, he wasn’t successful in the NFL. Three years from now (probably this season actually) the Queens will see the careers Ben Tate and Best and a few others and kick themselves for drafting the poor man’s Ron Dayne.

  40. At some point Ted had to take a chance, and I’m glad he took it on Quarless. Go Pack!

    Viking fan’s expectation of a successful 2010 season : winning the Super Bowl.
    Packer fan’s expectation of a successful 2010 season : Viking’s don’t win the Super Bowl.

  42. Yes, I’m sure the Viking fans really want to see TWO Jermichael Finley’s running free on the Metrodome carpet. JF torched the Vikes at the Dome last year and that was without an Oline protecting Rodgers.
    I do love Viking Fans… such dupes. Favre has his best season in his career and they finish 12-4 with a cupcake schedule. Meanwhile, Favre’s last year in Green Bay they finished 13-3. Who has the better team?
    A true shame these teams didn’t get to play at the end of the season when Packers had Clifton. Got us, twice, when he was out and took advantage, yet, Arod still torched them.
    It’s a Green Bay run in the North for the next decade. Vikes should worry about Detroit being the 2nd best team in the North.

Wash it down with a couple of good ole Milwaukees Best brews and watch highlights of last years NFC championship game…hopefully that will put you in a better mood….on second thought scratch the game highlights…

    Amen. Drink real beer or don’t drink at all.
    Back on topic, why do you Viking fans feel it needful to rip on a fifth rounder? Was your own draft THAT horrible?
    If Quarless looks like the changed man he claims to be, and/or someone who can produce on the field, then it’s a good pick.
    If not, then he’ll either be cut after camp or become a Jarrett Bush equivalent for the offense. Whichever way that happens, it won’t matter, nothing big will be expected, because he’s a fifth round pick!
    You guys need to find a hobby..

  53. Why is everyone responding to Pervy?? I’ve been telling you all for 2 years now that she’s actually an 11th grader named Nancy. Little girls only get love in Minnesota… and of the forced variety. I just read the Minny is the rape capital of the world!

  54. I love it how the Vikings have never won anything of note. In fact- I love it more that they’ve lost the Super Bowl 4 times. It also makes my pants tight to rehash Favre’s last toss in the NFC Championship game last season.

    The purpose of every NFL team is to be successful on the field, and to be successful financially. You don’t seem to get that though. If that isn’t the “big picture” what is??
    You will defend and worship Ted until he is fired. Then you will defend and worship his successor. You loved Sherman, you loved Wolf, yet you badmouth both of them now. You’re a homer. That’s all it is. You will defend anyone in Green Bay no matter how good or bad they are, simply because they are in Green Bay.
    Yet you have the nerve to call ME a surface thinker.
    ———-
    i was too young to have a educated opinion of Wolf until the end. i can tell you this. Ron Wolf, though proud of resurrecting the Packers, is admitedly disappointed in his tenure in Green Bay. Sherman had no personel experience and was actually recommended by Wolf for the job. Strange hire. So to say I defended either one of those men is not true.

  73. is there anything else to do in mn and wisconsin besides bash vikings and packers?
    do shut up

    Wolf said he was disappointed and Sherman handling both jobs was too much. Thought so at the time and he had no personnel or scouting experience.

    By the way, Quarless could be another Finley.

    Yes he could. Or, he could end up not making the active roster. Hell, LeGarrette Blount could well end up being rookie of the year. None of these guys have seen the field yet. It’s all speculation at this point, so why even bother saying it?
    ___________
    Very true. His body-type and playing style resemble Finley in many ways. They have plenty of TE’s though, so you never know. All speculation. Like Ted Thompson could’ve been fired in 07 or 09 or he could have won the NFL Executive of….oh wait, he did win those. My bad.
