As we approach today’s deadline for teams around the league to cut down to their final 53-man roster, there will be plenty surprises throughout the NFL. One of those surprises came from Wisconsin when it was reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network that the Green Bay Packers have parted ways with back up quarterback Vince Young.
Young confirmed the news on his Twitter account.
Thanks to the @packers for the opportunity great organization great team wonderful fans good luck this season.

The release of Young follows the release of Graham Harrell, which means the Packers must be sold on back up quarterback B.J. Daniels.
Green Bay has never had a steady back up quarterback position, and with an unproven guy like Daniels as the option behind Aaron Rodgers, the position is still very shaky.
You always hope that your star quarterback avoids injury, but especially when you have a less than ideal option waiting in the wings.
