Andrew Quarless revealed Monday he missed the first two days of training camp because his daughter died at birth last week.
“It was probably the saddest day of my life” After his second training camp practice of the season, Packers’ tight end Andrew Quarless shared the tragic news of the loss of his daughter at birth on July 29th.
An emotional Quarless thanked the Packer’s organization for the overwhelming support. “It’s just been so much support, more than I feel sometimes I might deserve,” said Quarless.
The death of his daughter comes on the heels of his July 4th arrest in Miami. Quarless couldn’t discuss of the specifics of the case. Immediately after the arrest he spoke with head coach Mike McCarthy who showed support, but disappointment as well.
“He was very upset, very upset, you know I just apologized to him, for bringing in negativity to this place, you know we’re a great group of characters, you know but he did tell me just to stay focused, don’t be too hard on yourself, as a man like I said, you learn, you make mistakes, and you grow from them,” said Quarless.
Andrew Quarless pleaded no contest on the misdemeanor gun charge and is due back in court at the end of August, while also waiting for a possible suspension from the NFL, taking things one day at a time.
“I don’t wanna downplay anything, I don’t wanna say anything about that, you know only time will tell, you know I’m here for my guys, and they’re here for me, and that’s the best we can do.”
