Barring a significant setback as the summer progresses, we hear Graham Harrell remains a solid bet to replace Matt Flynn as the Packers’ signal caller behind Aaron Rodgers this coming season. Primarily due to Harrell’s lackluster track record up to now at the pro level — he already has been cut twice before by the Packers — rumors that the Packers might seriously pursue QB Colt McCoy, a more proven commodity than Harrell who has seemingly become expendable in Cleveland, can be expected to linger for a while.

But according to sources on the scene, a legitimate case could be made for Harrell being arguably the most impressive Packers player so far this offseason. For one thing, Harrell looks a lot stronger from head to toe after adding 10-15 pounds of muscle and undergoing special shoulder treatment. In addition to adding substantial zip to his passes, we hear Harrell, who bypassed an offer from the Bills last summer to remain with the Packers, has looked increasingly comfortable making adjustments — both inside and outside of the pocket.
