New York Giants chasing Green Bay Packers free agent

Published Add your comment

The New York Giants are looking for a new tight end and it seems that the search has their eyes fixed towards Wisconsin and the Green Bay Packers.

According to, the Giants have put Packers tight end Andrew Quarless at the top of their receiver shopping list for free agency. 

The article uses "multiple league insiders" as their source on the matter and added that the Giants are expected to show interest when teams begin negotiating with free agents this weekend.

Quarless suffered a gruesome injury in 2011, actually against the Giants, completely blowing out his knee and missed the whole of the 2012 season. You can see the injury here, but it is not a pretty sight.

The 25-year old returned in 2013 and posted up career numbers for the Packers in his comeback season. 

Quarless played in every one of Green Bay's games, starting 10, hauling in 32 catches for 312 yards and registering 2 touchdowns. He played a lot of snaps as a blocker, putting his 6"4 250 pound frame to good use.

Brandon Myers was the leading receiving tight end for the Giants last season with 47 catches for 522 yards and four touchdowns.

If Quarless was to move to MetLife Stadium then he would in all likelihood come in as the number two tight end on the depth chart, with the Giants possibly looking at drafting a new TE in May.
