The Giants need some major upgrades at the tight end position this offseason, and one might come from a familiar face.

Andrew Quarless, who worked under new Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo as a tight end in Green Bay, drew early interest from the team this weekend, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The person requested anonymity in order to speak freely on the matter.

The Giants are one of seven teams who reached out to the 25-year-old Brooklyn native who spent the past four seasons in Green Bay.

The former fifth-round pick out of Penn State has 56 career receptions for 586 yards and three touchdowns but has plenty of room to grow.

Though his coaches in Green Bay have emphasized a better pad level as a blocker, Quarless has dual threat potential and could aid the Giants in their push for a balanced offense in 2014.
