Greg Paulus Is Still Trying To Play Football

Everyone’s favorite former Duke basketball player turned Syracuse football player hasn’t quite given up on his football dreams. And that’s after a season that saw him throw for 2,025 yards, 13 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions.

But those lukewarm numbers aint stopping Greg Paulus from pursuing his NFL career. Oh no. Because as soon as the New Orleans Saints’ minicamp opens this weekend, Paulus will be ready throw as many interceptions as Sean Payton and his crew can stomach.

In addition to their 2010 draft class and their group of 14 undrafted free agents, the New Orleans Saints’ rookie minicamp this weekend will also feature five members of last year’s practice squad and about 40 tryout players.

That group of tryout players will include Syracuse quarterback Greg Paulus — a former high school star who decided to play basketball at Duke for four years before returning to football as a fifth-year senior. Paulus played under former Saints offensive coordinator Doug Marrone during his year at Syracuse, throwing for 2,024 yards, 13 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

I guess I could make a joke or two here, but no need. You’ve read the story. That’s enough.
