Vince Young failure was my fault, Packers GM Ted Thompson says

There were reports that Vince Young was doing well in the Green Bay Packers camp after having been given another shot at the NFL. Ultimately, he didn’t survive the roster cuts on Saturday and is now at home waiting on a team to call him again, though some think that was his last chance.

Packers general manager Ted Thompson might have thrown him a lifeline as he tries to keep his NFL career alive.

“Frankly, it wasn’t fair to Vince,” Thompson explained during his Sunday news conference. “We threw a lot at Vince. A lot on his plate. He was a good teammate. The fault is probably mine. Should have brought him in sooner. The fault is mine.”

That leaves B.J. Coleman as Aaron Rodgers back up quarterback. When asked about the quarterback situation more, Thompson hinted that they might not be done with changes.

“We should really do this on Tuesday,” Thompson said.

This could mean that they’re looking to sign another quarterback.
