Green Bay Packers GM Ted Thompson is admitting his role in the failure of quarterback Vince Young to make the Packers' 53-man roster.
According to NBC26 reporter Dan Koob:
Thompson: on Young, probably wasn't fair. Threw a lot on his plate and the fault is probably mine. Should have had him in earlier— Dan Koob (@DanKoob) September 1, 2013
And as reported by ESPN's Rob Demovsky and the Press-Gazetter's Mike Vandermause:
TT: Probably wans't fair to Vince (Young). Threw a lot on his plate. Probably should've had him in here earlier.— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) September 1, 2013
TT: Anything that happens to this team, if we didn't do it right, it's my fault.— Mike Vandermause (@MikeVandermause) September 1, 2013
The Packers signed Vince Young during training camp to increase the quarterback competition.
B.J. Coleman is now Aaron Rodgers' backup quarterback, after serving as the 3rd stringer. Thompson says that he feels confident in Coleman.
