The Green Bay Packers will bring quarterback Vince Young in to try out as a backup to Aaron Rodgers, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

According to the report, the 30-year-old quarterback was at Austin-Straubel airport and is scheduled to work out with the Packers on Monday. Young hasn't appeared in the NFL since 2011 when he threw for 866 yards as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Young will compete with 28-year-old Graham Harrell and 24-year-old B.J. Coleman to backup the 2011 AP MVP Rodgers.
