According to Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger, the New York Giants are expected to pursue Green Bay Packers tight end Andrew Quarless in free agency this coming offseason. The Giants hired former Green Bay Packers’ QB coach Ben McAdoo as their new offensive coordinator, and he would like to bring Quarless in with him. Green Bay is also expected to be very interested in keeping Quarless, as he was a key piece to their offense following Jermichael Finley’s season-ending injury. Quarless played in all 16 games this past season for the Packers, catching 32 passes for 312 yards and two touchdown. He wasn’t used all that much early on in the year, but came up with huge plays seemingly every game in the last few weeks of the regular season. Standing at 6’4″ and weighing in at 252 pounds, he would be a huge target for Eli Manning in New York. The Giants haven’t been all that deep at tight end for awhile, and if signed, Quarless would compete with Adrian Robinson for the starting position. There will be other teams interested in Quarless, as he brings the ability to catch the ball as well as block at a high level. All that being said, the Green Bay Packers are hoping to bring him back, and Quarless would like to return to Green Bay as well. If the Giants want him bad enough, they could certainly offer him a higher priced contract that the Packers wouldn’t match, but it will be interesting to see how this situation plays itself out. One thing is for certain, Ben McAdoo wants to bring in someone that is familiar with his offense. The post New York Giants to pursue Andrew Quarless appeared first on Sports Glory.
