QB Vince Young makes return with Packers

Aaron Rodgers @AaronRodgers12 has a new backup. The Packers have signed Vince Young to a one-year contract after working him out on Monday. He should immediately slot ahead of the Packers' two other quarterbacks, Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman, as Rodgers' direct replacement. Young last played in 2011 with the Eagles when he threw four touchdowns and nine interceptions in six games.

Fantasy Analysis:

Let's hope Young doesn't hold more fantasy value than he does right now, because that would mean something bad has happened to Rodgers. On the NFL level, in the event of a Rodgers injury, the Packers should stand a better chance of staying competitive with Young rather than Harrell. It's hard to believe he is 30 years old, but Young can still make big plays with his legs. Again, I'd like to see those legs remain on the sidelines this season.
