GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers turned down a trade offered from the Cleveland Browns on Saturday.

It would have given the Packers another first-round draft pick in 2008.

Browns general manager Phil Savage called about a dozen teams to try to trade up for a first-round pick and select Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn.

The Browns were able to make a trade with the Dallas Cowboys and secured Quinn.

Cleveland used the third selection on Wisconsin tackle Joe Thomas.
