A report says that Green Bay Packers tight end Andrew Quarless faces one year's probation and a $1,000 fine after a gun-related incident in Florida in July.

The Journal Sentinel says that Quarless made a plea on Monday which led to the sentence, which also includes anger management and weapons classes. The paper says the NFL may investigate and offer a separate punishment.

The incident happened in Miami Beach over the July 4th weekend. Police arrested Quarless after he had an argument and allegedly fired shots at the ground, then fleed the area and reportedly put his gun in a potted plant to hide it.

Quarless returned to practice on Monday, as he has been cleared after weeks on injured reserve due to a knee injury.

Quarless has played with Green Bay since the Super Bowl season of 2010. The tight end out of Penn State has 85 receptions for 909 yards and six touchdowns in his career.
