Paulus Works Out For Packers


Greg Paulus hasn't played competitive football since 2004, but that didn't stop the Green Bay Packers from seeing if the Duke point guard still has some of the talent that earned him an offer to play for Notre Dame.

Paulus worked out for the Packers in Durham last Thursday in preparation of the upcoming NFL Draft, Sports Information Director Art Chase said Tuesday. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound quarterback threw to Duke wide receiver Eron Riley in front of Green Bay representatives.

Despite his workout, Paulus will not use a fifth year of NCAA eligibility to play for Duke, Chase said.

In his high school career, Paulus was a four-time all state player and set six New York passing records. He averaged more than three touchdown passes per game and racked up nearly 12,000 career passing yards while losing only three games in his career.

He became just the second Gatorade High School Player of the Year to not play football in college-the Minnesota Twins' Joe Mauer is the other-when Paulus spurned traditional football powerhouses to play point guard at Duke, where he was a three-year starter before seeing his minutes decline in his senior year.

Chase did not know whether Paulus has any more workouts planned.
