Quigley was signed by the Chicago Bears after the draft.[1]

Chicago Bears

He replaced Adam Podlesh at punter for the preseason after Podlesh sustained a hip flexor against the Washington Redskins in the second preseason game.[6] Against the New York Giants in the third preseason game, he had three of his seven punts land inside the 20-yard line, and the Giants were only able to muster six yards on four returns. However, Quigley also had a punt blocked to set up a Giants touchdown, though the Bears would go on to win 20–17.[7] He later made the 53-man roster.[8] However, Podlesh ended up punting in the season opener against the Indianapolis Colts.[9] Quigley was waived on September 10.[10]

New York Jets

On April 11, 2013, Quigley signed with the New York Jets.[11] He was released on August 26, 2013.[12] He was re-signed on September 16, 2013, after the Jets released Robert Malone.[13]
