Vince Young’s quest to become the Packers’ No. 2 quarterback has fallen short.
Young confirmed on Twitter on Saturday that he has been released by Green Bay.
“Thanks to the Packers for the opportunity. Great organization, great team, wonderful fans. Good luck this season,” Young wrote.
When the Packers released backup quarterback Graham Harrell, it looked like Young had an excellent opportunity to make Green Bay’s 53-man roster. But it appears that the Packers will go with just two quarterbacks, with B.J. Coleman backing up Aaron Rodgers.
