When the Green Bay Packers signed Young on Aug. 5, he still had a long way to go to actually earn a job. The former third overall pick didn't know the offense, and he wasn't exactly a developmental quarterback at age 30.
But it appears Young has earned himself a job.

The only other reserve quarterback on the roster, if Harrell is cut as expected, is B.J. Coleman, a 2012 seventh-round pick who played most of the fourth quarter against Seattle after Young and will probably end up on the practice squad.
Young completed 6-of-7 passes for 41 yards and a touchdown against Seattle, and also rushed for 39 yards. Harrell was unimpressive yet again, going 6-of-13 for 49 yards.
Unless the Packers have an unforeseen plan up their sleeves, it appears Young will be back on a NFL roster this season. That's a pretty fun comeback story.
