Though I would file it under “Highly Unlikely,” there’s a report that graduating Duke point guard Greg Paulus recently worked out with the Green Bay Packers. Paulus was a highly touted high school quarterback out of Syracuse, N.Y., but ultimately chose to play for Coach K instead. Paulus’ role diminished his senior season though he was able to maintain “Most Hated Dukie” status. (A close second: Jon Scheyer.)
Of course, the odds are slim Paulus will make an NFL team after four years away from football. But as a Vikings fan and someone who had to withstand five decades of Brett Favre in green and gold, I can’t bear the thought of Paulus leading the Pack. Gross.
