Former Packer Query Returns To The Team
Mar. 18, 1996
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) _ Former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jeff Query signed a one-year contract with the team worth the veteran's minimum of $275,000. He was paid $260,000 in 1991, his last season in Green Bay.
Query left the Packers in March 1992 as a Plan B free agent for Houston. He was cut by the Oilers that August and signed with the Cincinnati Bengals, with whom he remained until he was waived after playing in one game in 1995.
He spent a month with the Washington Redskins late last season and played briefly in one game.
The Packers drafted Query in the fifth round in 1989 from NCAA Div. III Millikin in Decatur, Ill.
In three seasons in Green Bay, Query caught 64 passes for 902 yards and four touchdowns. He also served as the team's No. 1 punt returner.
The Packers also re-signed quarterback Mike McCoy, who spent the last 10 weeks of last season on the team's practice squad.
McCoy, 23, started for two seasons at the University of Utah and was in training camp with Denver last season.
General manager Ron Wolf said if the Packers are successful in their attempts to re-sign Jim McMahon, they won't draft a quarterback and will enter training camp with Brett Favre, Doug Pederson, McMahon and McCoy.
