Packers announce roster moves

Posted Aug 6, 2013

The Green Bay Packers have signed WR Justin Wilson and QB Vince Young and placed WR Sederrik Cunningham (wrist) on injured reserve. The transactions were announced Tuesday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

Wilson, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound rookie out of Delaware State, participated in the Packers’ rookie orientation camp on a tryout basis in May 2013. A three-time All-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference first-team selection, he finished his career ranked No. 2 in school history in receptions (189) and No. 4 in receiving yards (2,416) and TD catches (23). Wilson will wear No. 7 for the Packers.

Young, a 6-foot-5, 230-pound seventh-year player out of the University of Texas, was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the first round (No. 3 overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft. He spent five seasons with Tennessee (2006-10), one season with the Philadelphia Eagles (2011), and was with the Buffalo Bills during the 2012 preseason.

For his career, Young has appeared in 60 games with 50 starts and has completed 755 of 1,304 attempts (57.9 percent) for 8,964 yards and 46 TDs with 51 INTs for a 74.4 passer rating. He has also rushed for 1,459 yards and 12 TDs on 282 carries (5.2 avg.). Young will wear No. 13 for the Packers.
