Packers sign Vince Young

Rookie David Bakhtiari gets the call for Packers at left tackle

Young will compete for the No. 2 spot with Graham Harrell to serve as the backup to starter Aaron Rodgers . The Packers also are intrigued with Young’s mobility and believe he can help prepare them for the opening two games of the regular season, in which Green Bay’s defense plays against San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick and Washington’s Robert Griffin III . Mack Brown, Young’s former coach at the University of Texas, released a statement Tuesday thanking the quarterback for his recent work with his team and wishing him the best in Green Bay. “I’m so happy for Vince.

The 2013 season looks to be one of the most promising in terms of the fantasy running back position for the Packers. They have gone through numerous running backs, hoping to find the one player they can depend on to give the arm of Rodgers a rest. In the 2013 NFL Draft, the Packers proved they are again searching for their star running back by drafting Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin. Both have impressed in training camp so far in their own way, but who will be the workhorse for the Packers this season? Drafting a Packers running back this year for your fantasy team appears to not look like a bad idea after all. Lacy is known as one of the best running backs to enter the NFL this season as he proved his skill during his collegiate time. The Packers have not had a big, hard-hitting running back like Lacy for quite some time and are hoping he is the solution to their problems. As of right now, Lacy may have the slight edge in the race, but this doesnt mean he will be the starter come Week 1 of the regular season. Lacy has put on, lets just say, a few extra pounds since being drafted by the Packers. He credits it to eating more fast food and the greasy, cheesy meals that Green Bay is accustomed to serving.

Credell, also college propsects. Autry, Carter and Mouhon also made the GHSF Dailys preseason All-Class AAAAAA team. Colquitt County will counter with fewer marquee players, although the Packers have a chance to produce a special defense this season. Heading that defense is senior Jamiyus Pittman, the 280-pound tackle who has committed to Ole Miss. Pittman was selected to the GHF Dailys Top 44 and was picked for the All-Class AAAAAA first team.

Working with the second team at left tackle. Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) August 6, 2013 Brutally sloppy period. McCarthy started it over once. May do it again or just blow his stack Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) August 6, 2013 Based solely on the language and decibel level of today’s coaching, it’s been a sloppy practice Dan Koob (@DanKoob) August 6, 2013 Another good throw by Harrell.

That’s because few of them have even heard of rookie David Bakhtiari, let alone seen him play. Well, the Green Bay Packers certainly won’t be adopting a woe-is-me approach. For one thing, that would be self-defeating. For another, it would be misguided. Most importantly, the Packers know better than anyone what they’ve uncovered in Bakhtiari.

GREEN BAY, Wis. – The play, the seventh of Saturday night’s Packers Family Night practice, seemed like nothing of note. A pileup occured and left tackle Bryan Bulaga left “kicking his leg a little bit” according to Packers general manager Ted Thompson. It’s the reason Thompson and others in the Packers organization have hope for Bulaga, who the Packers doctors have diagnosed with a torn ACL, according to Bulaga’s father, though team is not saying that publicly yet. He’s getting a second opinion on the MRI from Dr. James Andrews before deciding anything officially. On the field Tuesday, the Packers moved on while Bulaga’s locker remained untouched, jersey and shoulder pads ready to be worn and shower sandles awaiting a foot. Instead, the feet that touched the sandles were those of the media, trying to jostle for space to speak with rookie David Bakhtiari, who has the locker to Bulaga’s right and looks to hold down the left tackle position in his place.

Green Bay Packers: David Bakhtiari could save day at left tackle

Look for Boykin to get even more opportunities this preseason. Youngs role: In his first practice in nearly a year, Young spent most of it standing next to quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo. Young, who last was on an NFL roster with the Buffalo Bills last August, took only two snaps in team (11-on-11) periods, and both were handoffs. Young took part in all of the individual drills, much of which concentrated on his footwork. McCarthy considers footwork to be an integral part of playing quarterback. As much as Young will have to learn the offense, he also has much to work on in the fundamental aspect of the game. You dont want to spend the majority of your time with that, but just the way the quarterbacks are trained on a day-to-day basis, its part of our daily operation, McCarthy said. Hell definitely be trained in it, but we have to teach him the language and get him up to speed. Young said there was some carryover from the offense he ran in 2011 with the Philadelphia Eagles , where he spent one season. Then-Eagles coach Andy Reid runs a West Coast offense similar to McCarthys.
