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.

RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
