The Green Bay Packers are bringing an MVP into the quarterback room in 2023, but just not one from the NFL.
The club reportedly has signed Alex McGough, the USFL MVP of the Birmingham Stallions, who have won two straight USFL Championships.
He’ll have to report to training camp on Jul. 21st.
The 27-year-old provides some veteran experience to the Packers quarterback room, which had taken a young turn following the departure of Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets. McGough has not started a game in the NFL but brings starting experience at some professional level.
An alum of Florida International University, McGough first entered the league in 2018 after he was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the seventh round. After being let go ahead of final roster cut-downs, McGough spent time with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans.
During this past championship season, McGough tossed for 2,104 passing yards and 20 touchdowns to just five interceptions, while completing 67.4% of his passes.
The dual-threat quarterback also added 403 rushing yards and five touchdowns on the ground. In the postseason, he had nine touchdowns while completing 69.6% of his passes.
The Packers are currently carrying four quarterback on the roster; McGough, Etling, Clifford and presumed starter Jordan Love.
