QB Vince Young cut by Green Bay Submitted: 08/31/2013
GREEN BAY - Vince Young's days with the Packers are over. The veteran vying for a backup job went on Twitter Saturday to thank Green Bay for giving him an opportunity and wished the team well this season. Young's departure would leave just B.J. Coleman on the roster to back up Aaron Rodgers. The Packers planned to officially release their moves later Saturday, when teams are required to trim rosters to 53 players. ``Thanks to (Packers) for the opportunity ... Wonderful fans. Good luck this season,'' Young posted. He struggled Thursday in the final preseason game against the Chiefs going 14 of 30 for 144 yards with two fumbles. That followed a strong showing the previous week against the Seahawks. The Packers signed Young on Aug. 6. For a complete list of the Packers cuts click on this link.
