The Green Bay Packers have decided not to offer a contract to University of Wisconsin quarterback John Stocco.

He had a three-day try-out last weekend at the Packers' post-draft rookie camp.

His agent, John Drana, says Stocco will now have a similar audition with the New York Giants.

Drana said his client was disappointed, but he realized his chances of making the Packers were slim. He says Stocco will keep looking for,"the right team and the right situation at the right time."

The Packers also said no to giving former UW-La Crosse basketball star Joe Werner a contract. His coach convinced the Packers to try out Werner at tight end.

Meanwhile, UW-Whitewater tight end Pete Schmitt of Mount Horeb has signed a free agent contract with the Washington Redskins after a try-out last weekend.

The Redskins plan to move him to fullback.
