The Packers might not have a left tackle at the moment, but they’re adding a quarterback.
Former first-rounder Vince Young worked out for the Packers today, and it apparently went well.
According to Ed Werder of ESPN, the Packers were “impressed,” by Young’s workout and “will attempt to sign” him. Moments later, ESPN colleague Josina Anderson reported a one-year deal would be signed.
Werder also noted that the Packers’ first two games were against the 49ers and Redskins, implying that Young’s presence will make it easier somehow to prepare for those two.
Without seeing Young play, it’s hard to know if he’s good enough to replicate Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III closely enough for them to benefit.
