The Green Bay Packers have released quarterback B.J. Coleman. After releasing Vince Young ahead of Saturday’s deadline this leaves the Packers with only one quarterback on their roster, Aaron Rodgers.
Breaking news this AM: #Packers have released QB B.J. Coleman. No word on who backup QB will be but evidently not Coleman per NFL source

After releasing Vince Young the media asked general manager Ted Thompson if he was confident in back up B.J. Coleman. Thompson expressed confidence in his ability to to win a game if he had to play in place of Aaron Rodgers. He also hinted that the moves wouldn’t be over.
“We should really do this on Tuesday,” Thompson said.
Certainly the Packers couldn’t be heading into the season with one quarterback on their roster. That must mean that they liked a quarterback who was released over the weekend and are looking to bring him in. It is a risky move still to have a quarterback brought in so close to the season with next to no knowledge of the offense and starting from scratch.
