Interest in Joe Horn?

According to a report in today's Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Packers are apparently one of about 8 teams interested in the services of veteran wide receiver Joe Horn, who was released yesterday by the Saints. A story in today's Green Bay Press Gazette also mentions that the Pack might have an interest in Horn. Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy was Horn's offensive coordinator in New Orleans from 2000 to 2004. According to the article, they had a good working relationship. The same article points out McCarthy also coached Donte Stallworth, who was released by Philadelphia, while he played for the Saints from 2002 to 2004.

While the buzz lately has been all about Randy Moss coming to the Pack, Horn and Stallworth -- despite age and injury issues -- might offer good alternatives and could likely be had for less than what the Raiders are seeking for Moss.
