Graham Harrell had a fantastic career at Texas Tech, but it hasn’t translated very well to the NFL.
Despite being a nominee and winner of multiple collegiate athletic awards, Harrell went undrafted in 2009 and has spent the last two years of his career splitting time between the practice squad and Green Bay Packers active roster.
He won’t have to split time any longer as today, the Green Bay Packers waived the former college standout.
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
Looks as if Vince Young has won Packers backup QB job. Packers are releasing QB Graham Harrell.
The news doesn’t come as much of a shock considering earlier this morning, it was all but unofficially announced that Vince Young (another college quarterback who has found struggles in the NFL) won the backup job to Aaron Rodgers.
Harrell played in four NFL games, all for the Packers where he completed 2 of 4 attempts. He also rushed four times for a negative three yards.
He could latch onto another team’s practice squad or may opt to return to the CFL, where he played prior to signing with the Packers.
