Vince Young released by Packers

In a bit of a surprise, the Packers have released veteran quarterback Vince Young, who appeared to be in line to back up Aaron Rodgers. 

But Young confirmed on his Twitter account that his three-week run in Green Bay is over. 

The Packers will now go with former Tennessee-Chattanooga quarterback B.J. Coleman, Green Bay's seventh-round pick in 2012.
