No Packers offer for Stocco

Former University of Wisconsin quarterback John Stocco won't be attending the Green Bay Packers' minicamp next week.Stocco's three-day tryout last weekend during the team's rookie orientation camp did not lead to a contract offer and Stocco is now on his way to New York for a similar tryout with the Giants, agent John Drana said.

"He was disappointed," Drana said. "I think so many times you go in with high expectations. Only so many are selected and hundreds are around. He was disappointed but he was realistic about it, too. Now he'll have to take the long road. He'll keep grinding and stay in the mix and try to get with the right team and the right situation at the right time."

Drana said Packers college scouting director John Dorsey told him that Stocco did an excellent job running the team and learning the system and that if the Packers had a need down the road, Stocco would be someone they would consider.
