He replaced Adam Podlesh at punter for the preseason after Podlesh sustained a hip flexor against the Washington Redskins in the second preseason game. 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. He later made the 53-man roster. However, Podlesh ended up punting in the season opener against the Indianapolis Colts. Quigley was waived on September 10.
