Transaction: Packers Sign QB Mike Reilly

Losing a former 2nd round pick, QB Brian Brohm, and replacing him with a QB who went undrafted and spent last season playing Division II college football is a big step down.

But if there is a silver lining about the news that QB Mike Reilly was signed to the practice squad, it's that Reilly's an interesting player. Here's his bio from NFL Draft Scout. He was major college prospect who went to Washington State, but transferred to Division II Central Washington after his redshirt season. He threw for 12,448 yards in college, 3rd all time in Division II history, and won the Division II equivalent of the Heisman trophy last year. And at 6'3", 214 lbs., he's got the size to play in the NFL. The Packers' personnel department must have scouted him, and known all about him, so this isn't just a random signing to fill the open QB spot on the practice squad. 

Hopefully he stays on the practice squad for the rest of the season, and sticks around through next year, because I'd like to see him play in a preseason game.
