Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Packers are releasing QB Graham Harrell due to Vince Young winning the backup job. After an impressive preseason showing, Young has comfortably secured the role as the backup plan should anything happen to Aaron Rodgers. The former Titan completed 6 of 7 passes for 41 yards, a touchdown and 39 yards rushing yards during last night’s victory. Harrell had been touted as Rodgers “future backup” for awhile now, but his continuing struggles during preseason never left the staff comfortable with his overall ability, which was evident by the signing of Young just only a month ago. Young will now be the No.2 QB on the team’s roster, ahead of B.J. Coleman who could end up on the team’s practice squad in the next few weeks.   The post Vince Young Wins Backup Job, Packers Cut Graham Harrell appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.

  • Fantastic news for VY! I would've rather seen him in a Cardinal uniform, but happy that he has the chance to get back on the field, even if he's in a back-up role. He has the goods and I can't wait to see him playing again.
