According to sources, Green Bay has a lot of interest in recently released former Carolina Panthers quarterback Jimmy Clausen.
A former second-round pick from Notre Dame, Clausen has started just 10 games in three seasons, all during his rookie campaign. He was even surpassed by Derek Anderson as Cam Newton’s primary backup last season.
The sources indicate that Green Bay released Young knowing that Clausen would be an option moving forward.
Young, Coleman or Clausen – either way, the Packers are are in trouble if Aaron Rodgers isn’t in the starting lineup.
