Report: Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage Worked Out For The Packers


Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, citing an NFL source, reports that the Packers recently hosted Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage for a pre-draft visit.

Silverstein mentions that the Packers typically bring in late-round quarterbacks for visits, so this is a somewhat interesting move for the Packers.

The Packers currently have Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien behind Aaron Rodgers, but there has been talk that they could target a prospect to develop.

Savage has been one of the more interesting players as the buzz surrounding him has really picked up a great deal in recent weeks. Some believe he has a chance to come off the board in round one. In fact, Savage was among the players who received an invite to attend the draft at Radio City Music Hall.

It seems unlikely that the Packers would use one of their early picks on a quarterback.

Savage has worked out for the Browns, Rams, Raiders and there has been talk that the Bengals, Patriots and Texans could also be options for Savage as well.

In his first year with at Pitt, Savage completed 61.2 percent of his passes for 2,958 yards, 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
