Receiver Sent Packing

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin () -- Wide receiver Andre Rison, who scored the first touchdown of the Super Bowl on a pass from Brett Favre, had his contract terminated by the Green Bay Packers.


Green Bay general manager Ron Wolf, announcing the decision Tuesday, said the team's receiver corps doesn't have room for Rison as a starter.


"The feeling here is that Andre is a starter," Wolf said. "And with the situation we presently are in, he wouldn't be a starter. So we feel it is in the best interests of both parties to terminate the association at this time."
