Green Bay Packers release QB Vince Young

The Green Bay Packers released quarterback Vince Young as part of their mandatory roster reduction to 53 players.

“Thanks to the Packers for the opportunity great organization great team wonderful fans good luck this season,” Young wrote on Twitter.

Young, signed in August, impressed the Packers enough on Aug. 23 in a 17-10 loss to Seattle that the team released Graham Harrell.  But Young was not as impressive in Thursday’s preseason finale against Kansas City, completing 14-of-30 passes for 144 yards, generating only six points on eight series.

Young finished the preseason with a 71.6-quarterback rating on 26-of-49 completions (53.1 percent) for 218 yards with one touchdown.

For a second straight year Young failed to make a team coming out of training camp. The third overall pick of the Tennessee Titans in the 2006 draft, was released by the Buffalo Bills last August and spent the 2012 season out of football.

The Packers are now left with only B.J. Coleman to backup starter Aaron Rodgers.  The Packers could have their eye on a quarterback that could be potentially released today by another team.
