Why did the Packers work out Duke basketball player Greg Paulus, a former All-America high school football player?

Why not? The Packers’ scouting staff was down there, and it doesn't hurt to take a look at a guy who might have some upside. The chance that Paulus could actually make the Packers roster is almost nil, but he could certainly be a fourth or fifth arm in mini-camps and maybe even training camp, and he obviously has some athleticism. According to FoxSports, Paulus is also meeting with University of Michigan about playing football there, as he has a year of eligibility left in that sport.

I remember signing another former Duke basketball player when I was with the Packers.
