                    === Vince Young among Green Bay cuts ===
 
 Green  Bay,  WI (Sports  Network)  -  It appears  that  Vince  Young will  not
 be the  backup quarterback for the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers.
 
 The  Packers  made it official  on Saturday, releasing the 30-year-old veteran
 as well as 21 others to move their roster down to 53 players.
 
 Green  Bay released  quarterback  Graham Harrell  earlier  this week,  leaving
 Young  as  the presumptive  top candidate to  be Rodgers' understudy. However,
 that will not be the case.
 
 Young,  who signed with Green Bay in early August, last played in the NFL with
 the  Philadelphia  Eagles in  2011. He  appeared in six  games that season and
 threw for 866 yards with four touchdowns and nine interceptions.
 
 The  former  Tennessee Titans  starter was  with the  Buffalo Bills during the
 2012 preseason, but was cut before the start of the campaign.
 
 Other  players  released from the  Packers organization were fullback Jonathan
 Amosa,  tackles  Andrew Datko  and Kevin Hughes,  safety David Fulton, centers
 Garth  Gerhart and  Patrick Lewis,  running  back Alex  Green, wide  receivers
 Charles  Johnson, Tyrone  Walker and Myles White, linebackers Terrell Manning,
 Dezman  Moses and  Donte  Savage,  cornerbacks Loyce  Means,  James Nixon  and
 Brandon  Smith,  defensive tackle Jordan  Miller, tight ends Matthew Mulligan,
 Jake Stoneburner and D.J. Williams and safety Chaz Powell.
