Quarterback Marc Wilson has been offered a contract by the Green Bay Packers, the National Football League team's vice president of football operations says.

Tom Braatz confirmed Monday that was the case after the Boston Globe said Sunday that the Packers had offered a one-year, $400,000 pact to Wilson, who became a free agent after starting the final seven games of last season for the Los Angeles Raiders.

Braatz said the size of the offer reported was incorrect, but would not specify what it was.

"I hope (reen Bay's) offer is a starting place," Wilson said from his home in Seattle, adding that he would play for the Packers.

Wilson completed 57.1 percent of his passes for 2,070 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, with eight interceptions. His quarterback rating of 84.6 put him 11th in the NFL.
