Vince Young is on the way out in Buffalo.
Although Young’s release hasn’t been officially announced by the Bills, he wrote a farewell message on Twitter on Monday morning.
“I want to thank the Bills organization for the opportunity and wish the organization and my teammates good luck this season,” Young wrote. “Respect Bills fans.”
When the Bills decided to acquire quarterback Tarvaris Jackson in a trade from the Seahawks, it was a clear sign that Young would be sent packing. With Ryan Fitzpatrick as the starter and Jackson as the new No. 2, there’s really no reason for Young to be on the roster.
The third overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft, Young has had moments of brilliance as an NFL quarterback but has also had moments when he looked totally incapable of running an NFL offense. Young has talent, but he’s going to have a tough time finding any team that thinks he’s a good fit.
