Two-Time Pro Bowler Vince Young Working Out With the Green Bay Packers

Two-time Pro Bowl quarterback Vince Young was spotted in Austin-Straubel airport on Sunday evening, confirming reports that the Green Bay Packers plan to workout with Young at practice on Monday.

Currently the Packers have Aaron Rodgers, but beyond him the talent is questionable. Graham Harrel, 28, who is Green Bay’s current backup quarterback, has not shown any potential to be a quality fill for Green Bay should Rodgers go down. Competing with Harrel, is seventh round draft pick BJ Coleman who hasn’t proven to be a better option than Harrel and failed miserably in Saturday’s family scrimmage.

In stark contrast, Young has experience leading an NFL team to success. In six NFL seasons with Tennessee and Philadelphia, Young has played in 60 career games with 50 starts and completed 755-of-1,304 passes (57.9 percent) for 8,964 yards in his career with 46 touchdowns and 51 interceptions. The AFC offensive rookie of the year in 2006, Young also has 282 carries for 1,459 yards (5.2 yards per carry) and 12 touchdowns.

If Young can still perform at 30 years old, he would bring the Packers veteran experience for Aaron Rodgers backup for a team with Super Bowl aspirations.
