Free-agent QB Vince Young (Browns) said he is retiring to take a position with the University of Texas. He has not filed retirement papers.
Huddle Up: Young hasn't been fantasy-relevant for some time, but if you were clinging to hope in a dynasty league it's time to let go.

Updating a previous report, the Cleveland Browns have officially signed QB Vince Young, reportedly to 1-year deal.
Huddle Up: The Browns also inked veteran backup Tyler Thigpen to a 1-year deal Thursday as they fill out their QB depth chart. Prior to Thursday, Brian Hoyer and Alex Tanney were the only 2 QBs on the roster. Cleveland also is expected to spend a high draft pick on a QB next week, so we'll see if VY's latest comeback attempt has some legs.

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Vince Young (Eagles) will take a physical Monday, April 28, with the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Young isn't a bad fantasy option when he's adding rushing stats to his passing-game contributions, but at this juncture he's at best a backup plan in the real fantasy world and an afterthought fantasy-wise.

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.
