NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Monday that QB Vince Young signed a one-year contract with the Packers following a successful workout with the team.

ESPN's Ed Werder was the first to report of the imminent signing.

Rapoport reported that the Packers have a quarterback meeting Monday night and Young plans to attend.

The signal-caller makes his NFL return after a one-year hiatus. He was cut by the Buffalo Bills last summer after he somehow managed to lose the backup quarterback job to Tyler Thigpen. Young has had additional stops with the Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans.


Fantasy Impact:
Young will serve as a more dependable backup to Rodgers than Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman. Neither has done much to inspire confidence in the early stages of camp for the Packers.
