The Green Bay Packers dumped backup quarterback Vince Young on Saturday and moved B.J. Coleman up to No. 2 on the teams depth cart.
While the move came as a surprise the Packers and general manager Ted Thompson took the blame for signing Young.
“Quite frankly, it probably wasn’t fair to Vince,” Thompson said. “We threw a lot on his plate, and the fault is probably mine. I probably should have had him in here earlier.”
On Monday the Packers announced the signing of Seneca Wallace. Coleman has subsequently been released.
Wallace was picked up by the San Francisco 49ers near the end of training camp but later revealed that the team simply signed him in an effort to get their backup quarterback, Colt McCoy, to take a pay cut. Wallace did not play in the 49ers final preseason game.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers' backup quarterback carousel has not stopped spinning. After releasing both of their top reserves -- first Graham Harrell and then Vince Young -- over the past week, the Packers were left with only 2012 seventh-round pick B.J. Coleman to take snaps behind starter Aaron Rodgers. Now, not even that is true.
