It looked like VY was a lock to make the roster, but not anymore.
Vince Young could be in jeopardy following poor performance last night, depending on who becomes available as final rosters made #packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Vince Young experiment with the Green Bay Packers lasted 26 days. Young lost out on the Packers' backup quarterback job and was released Saturday morning.
"Thanks to the Packers for the opportunity," Young posted on his Twitter account. "Great organization, great team, wonderful fans. Good luck this season."
Last week, it seemed like...
Vince Young will not be the Green Bay Packers' backup quarterback. The former first-round pick who was signed on Aug. 5 was released on Saturday.
Young confirmed the news on his Twitter account with this post: "Thanks to the @packers for the opportunity great organization great team wonderful fans good luck this season."
It marked the second straight season that Young...
With rosters down to just 53 players, there’s bound to be a run on free agents in the coming days. One of the most eligible such players is now Vince Young, who failed to stick with the Green Bay Packers, but this is a quarterback needy league, and Vince Young can still play.
Frankly, it’s strange to see such a talented quarterback with a winning record looking for work. Because...
Right when you think you are back, right Vince? In what is widely being viewed as a surprise Vince Young has been released by the Green Bay Packers.
It was thought that Young was a shoe-in for the No. 2 job after the Packers released Graham Harrell, but it appears that the Packers are going to go with 2012 seventh round pick B.J. Coleman from Tennessee...
Vince Young's days with the Packers are apparently over.
The veteran vying for a backup job went on Twitter Saturday to thank Green Bay for giving him an opportunity and wished the team well this season.
Young's apparent departure would leave just B.J. Coleman on the roster to back up Aaron Rodgers. The Packers planned to officially release their roster moves later Saturday...
There were almost as many punts as first downs with Vince Young in the game on Thursday night. Young wasn't very good, but neither was his supporting cast. Beyond the front-line players, the offense has a glaring lack of depth
Just when you think he is safe he sends out this tweet… @VinceYoung: Thanks to the @packers for the opportunity great organization great team wonderful fans good luck this season. This is pretty wild, it looks like the Packers will keep only two quarterbacks on their roster with Aaron Rodgers and BJ Coleman.
Some GM and execs can’t forget the bridges you’ve burned.
Even after looking like he had made strides and turned the corner, Vince Young was released today by the Packers. Young took to Twitter to thank the organization.
Thanks to the @packers for the opportunity great organization great team wonderful fans good luck this season.

The Vince Young era in Green Bay ended as abruptly as it began. Young announced the news morning in an almost-readable tweet: Thanks to the @packers for the opportunity great organization great team wonderful fans good luck this season. — Vince Young (@VinceYoung) August 31, 2013 The move did not exactly come as a shock.

SO CLOSE, YET SO FAR
When the Packers cut Graham Harrell, it appeared Vince Young had locked up a backup quarterback job. Instead, the team released him.
Green Bay managed just 37 points for the preseason, including a 30-8 loss to the Chiefs on Thursday night. Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews didn't play, and Vince Young and B.J. Coleman couldn't move the offense.
