Vince Young Signed by Green Bay Packers as Nothing But a Tackling Dummy
When news broke on Monday that Vince Young signed a one-year, last-chance deal with the Green Bay Packers, the media made it sound like Young overly impressed the team. And he may have, but let’s cut to the chase: the Packers brought in Young as nothing more than depth and injury insurance.
The Packers have one of the best quarterbacks in the league in Aaron Rodgers, so they don’t need a quarterback who was cut by the Buffalo Bills last preseason to come in and be the man if A-Rodg goes down. This all revolves around Bryan Bulaga‘s season-ending ACL tear: Green Bay brought in Young to take the brunt of the hits that are sure to come in Bulaga’s absence, especially during the preseason.
That’s right, Young is basically a tackling dummy for the Packers to use to get through the preseason and if he survives, he might make the 53-man roster…as a long-term tackling dummy. Don’t let the headlines fool you just because Young is a former superstar; this guy is in Green Bay for one reason and one reason only: to take hits.
