GREEN BAY – Graham Harrell knows it’s nothing more than a chance – and that there’s no guarantee he’ll be around when training camp starts at the end of July, much less be on the 53-man roster when the regular season kicks off on Sept. 13. 

Nevertheless, the Green Bay Packers’ newest quarterback is just happy to get a foot in the NFL door. 

“I’m very thankful to be here and excited to be here,” Harrell said following Wednesday open organized team activity practice. “I’m just excited about the opportunity.”

Similar to Aaron Rodgers coming out of Cal in 2005, “With the history Tech's had, we've had lots of quarterbacks that have thrown for a million yards and for whatever reason didn't make it. So there's kind of a stereotype to break."

If Harrell sounds a little too excited, consider what he’s been through to get to this point.
