Former Texas Longhorn quarterback legend Vince Young signed a one-year contract with the Green Bay Packers on Tuesday.

Young should also help the Packers prepare for their opening two regular season games against San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick, and Washington’s Robert Griffin III by running the scout team.

Young is expected to play Friday in the Packer’s preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals.
