NFL head coach and general managers hate the off-season for one reason, they have absolutely no control over what their players get up to.
The Green Bay Packers are the latest NFL side to be hurt by the off-season, with one of their players being arrested late last night.
According to a report from the Miami New Times, Packers tight end Andrew Quarless was arrested in Miami yesterday for apparently firing a gun twice at a group of women.

According to the report from the New Times, the police report claims Quarless fired two shots from a semiautomatic handgun during an argument with a group of women in downtown Miami, FL.
Quarless and another man approached a car containing several women while leaving a parking garage. An attendant at the parking garage heard one of the women yell, “No, get away, leave me alone!”
According to the police report, Quarless produced the gun and fired two shots, one straight into the sky. One of the women later told police that Quarless fired the shots “in an attempt to emphasize his dominance and manhood.”
This story does take a turn, an incredible turn as well. Further down in the report it states that Quarless actually tried to hide from the police, behind a plant!
Quarless was soon found trying to hide in front of Siena Tavern, police say, “attempting to conceal himself and a black firearm in a nearby plant.” Police dug the gun out of the plant and later matched rounds found on the ground near the garage with the gun.
Andrew Quarless is 6-feet-4-inches tall and weighs 252 pounds and he tried to hide behind a plant! That is incredible. The Packers have released a statement saying that they are aware of the investigation and are gathering more details.
Quarless appeared in 16 games with 11 starts in 2014, catching 29 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns.
