The Packers announced a trio of roster moves this morning:
The Green Bay Packers have signed QB Graham Harrell to the active roster from the practice squad, placed TE Andrew Quarless on injured reserve and signed G Jake Vermiglio to the practice squad. The transactions were announced Wednesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.
As Jason Wilde points out, the Packers are most likely protecting Harrell from being signed by another team late in the season. Personally, I’m anxious to see what Harrell looks like with a full offseason under his belt, including participating in Mike McCarthy’s quarterback school. (To that end, I really hope Tom Clements doesn’t leave)
Some additional information about the newest member of the practice squad, who tried out for the team on Monday:
Vermiglio (vuhr-MIGG-lee-oh), a 6-foot-5, 329-pound rookie out of North Carolina State, signed with the Arizona Cardinals as a non-drafted free agent on July 30 and was released by the team on Aug. 24. He played in 45 games with 32 starts for the Wolfpack, earning All-Atlantic Coast Conference honorable mention recognition as a senior. Vermiglio will wear No. 64.
