Quarless, 28 in October, spent most of the 2015 season on the Packers’ injured reserve, though he was originally placed on IR with the designation to return. An MCL injury sidelined Quarless for about two and a half months, beginning in late September, limiting him to five games and just four receptions for 31 yards for the season.
The tight end underwent a procedure in early 2016 to drain fluid from his knee and the team subsequently shut him down for the year. While Quarless was on the shelf for most of the season, second-year tight end Richard Rodgers enjoyed a breakout campaign, hauling in 58 balls and racking up eight touchdowns.
