Vince Young was apparently cut by the Green Bay Packers. Young was trying to become the backup quarterback for the Packers, but according to a report from Saturday (August 31), it seems that he does not have that job. This leaves B.J. Coleman as the backup to Aaron Rodgers and the only other quarterback on the 53-man roster.
The veteran quarterback took to Twitter to talk about what had happened. He said, "Thanks to (Packers) for the opportunity ... Wonderful fans. Good luck this season." Now he has the chance to sign with another franchise if he can pass through waivers first. It's possible that another franchise like the Buffalo Bills could give him a shot, but those same rumors are out there about Tim Tebow after he parted ways with the New England Patriots.
During the preseason, Young completed 14-of-30 passes for 144 yards. He also had two fumbles, lowering his value for a team that prides itself on not committing turnovers. Those numbers might also cost him the opportunity of finding a job with another franchise before the 2013 NFL season officially gets started.
After the decision to cut Vince Young, it's possible that the Green Bay Packers will be looking for another option at quarterback. Going into the regular season with only Rodgers and Coleman on the active roster seems risky, so keep an eye out for the team to make at least one more move before finalizing the official roster.
