The Green Bay Packers have released QB Vince Young.
Huddle Up: It's a tough day for former college stars with both Young and Tim Tebow getting released. Right now the Packers will go with 2012 seventh-round draft pick B.J. Coleman backing up Aaron Rodgers. Young could still get a shot elsewhere but he's running out of chances.

The Green Bay Packers released QB Graham Harrell. QB Vince Young appears to have won the backup quarterback spot.
Huddle Up: Young will only have fantasy value if Aaron Rodgers gets hurt. However, given Young's ability to run and the Packers' offensive weapons, he would be an intriguing waiver wire pick-up if Rodgers is lost for an extended period of time.

Green Bay Packers QB Vince Young, who just signed Tuesday, Aug. 6, made his team debut in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 9, against the Arizona Cardinals. Young completed one of his three pass attempts for seven yards, and he had two runs for 12 yards.
Huddle Up: Young is trying to win Green Bay's No. 2 QB job. He would obviously only have fantasy relevance if something were to happen to Aaron Rodgers.

The Green Bay Packers have signed free-agent QB Vince Young (Bills) to a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: The Packers have been rumored to be lacking confidence in backups Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman, and Monday's signing of Young -- who hasn't thrown a regular-season pass since Dec. 1, 2011 -- confirms it. It at least adds some intrigue to the latter quarters of Green Bay's preseason contests.

Free-agent QB Vince Young (Eagles) has no interest in joining the Canadian Football League (CFL), according to a source. The Oakland Raiders had worked him out recently, but after drafting QB Tyler Wilson, they are no longer interested in Young.
Huddle Up: When the QB-starved Raiders pass on you, you know you've definitely hit hard times, and Young, the former No. 3 overall draft pick and 2006 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, will keep looking for a NFL home after being released by the Bills late last preseason.

Free-agent QB Vince Young (Eagles) will work out a Texas' pro day. Young is back at Texas finishing his degree.
Huddle Up: Wow, how times have changed. Seven years ago, Young was a draft darling and the No. 3 overall pick. Three teams and last year's late training-camp release by the Bills later, Young is looking for any NFL opportunity he can find. It's a longshot to be sure, but with the read-option offense making some in-roads around the league, don't count VY out just yet.

Free-agent QB Vince Young reached out to Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald after their 58-0 loss Sunday, Dec. 9, via Twitter. Young tweeted "You know I can help. Tell coach."
Huddle Up: Telling coach might not do much, as the Cardinals could be looking for a new head coach sooner rather than later. But given the inability of any Arizona quarterback to locate Fitzgerald, Young might actually be an upgrade.
