Green Bay Packers Say No to Quarterback Vince Young

The Green Bay Packers cut quarterback Vince Young in a mandatory roster reduction to 53 players.

Young, signed in August to the Packers, impressed the higher-ups enough on Aug. 23 in a 17-10 loss to Seattle that he survived the first round of cuts.

But Young did’t  impress in Thursday’s preseason finale against Kansas City, completing only 14 of 30 passes for 144 yards. 

Young didn’t seem to harbor any hard feelings after he was cut, posting on Twitter his thanks to the team.

“Thanks to the Packers for the opportunity great organization great team wonderful fans good luck this season.” 

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

This will be the second straight year that Young failed to make a team coming out of the preseason. He was also released by the Buffalo Bills last August and went the whole season without playing football.
