Lions Release Andrew Quarless
The Detroit Lions have released veteran Andrew Quarless only a month after signing him according to mlive. Quarless is eligible to play after serving a two-game suspension for violating the NFL conduct policy.
The initial signing raised eyebrows as Quarless didn't fit the organization's zero-tolerance policy. He was arrested last summer after he reportedly fired a gun into the air outside a Miami nightclub. The former Green Bay Packer was sentenced to six months probation and ordered to take anger management classes, and had to surrender his gun.
After Eric Ebron's injury scare and Brandon Pettigrew recovering from a knee injury Quarless added depth to the tight end position.
This roster move does not free a spot because he was serving a suspension which means he isn't on the official 53-man roster.
