(August 16, 2012 – Source: Hannah Foslien/Getty Images North America) It took a little longer for the trade to acquire Tarvaris Jackson to be complete, but now that it’s official, the Bills made a move many expected – they released Vince Young. Young first tweeted the news himself:
“I want to thank the Bills organization for the opportunity and wish the organization and my teammates good luck this season”. — Vince Young (@VinceYoung) August 27, 2012

Now, Young is once again looking for work after failing to fully grasp the Bills spread offense. Stay tuned for the latest on the Bills quarterback carousel as it develops. The post Bills Officially Cut Vince Young appeared first on Queen City Sports.
