Green Bay Packers And…Greg Paulus?!?!?…

I never ever thought I’d say this, but good luck Greg Paulus on your….NFL Career?!? Yep, that’s right Packer fans. Greg Paulus, an ex-Duke Blue Devil point guard and ex-high school football phenom, officially tried out and worked out for the Green Bay Packers this past week. At what position? Well, to most people’s surprise, it was for Quarterback. Paulus, against what you would think by looking at him, was actually an amazing and highly praised high school quarterback. Before committing to Duke University to play college basketball, Paulus was recruited by Notre Dame and The U (Miami) on full scholarship as well as being named Gatorade High School Football Player of the Year in the United States his senior year.

Though Paulus is 6-foot-1 and a whopping 180 pounds, he was a four-time all-state football player in high school, a starter in the U.S. Army All-American game, and set six state passing records during his tenure behind center. So, apparently he is legit, just tiny. To also note, his brother Mike is currently one of the Quarterbacks at the University of North Carolina. For the family’s sake, good thing Mike doesn’t ball it up, otherwise the Tar Heel-Blue Devil rivalry would probably rip that family apart.

Is Aaron Rodgers being threatened for the top spot at Lambeau? I don’t think so but wouldn’t that be absolutely hilarious?!? Everyone, even Duke fans, hate Greg Paulus. Could you imagine that backlash if he took the highly praised Rodgers’ spot during training camp? Wow, just thinking about it makes me crack up…let’s hope it happens…unless you’re a Packer fan.
