Veteran Vince Young cut by Buffalo BillsVince Young is out of work, Terrell Suggs is on PUP and several veteran NFL kickers are on the street after the first set of mandatory cuts.
Teams needed to be down to 75 players Monday, and Young was the biggest name to lose his job. After Buffalo acquired Tarvaris Jackson from Seattle to back up quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, 2006 Offensive Rookie of the Year Young was released.
“Vince, I don’t want to get into what he can do and can’t do, it just didn’t work out,” general manager Buddy Nix said. “We just need to move on and give this guy a try.”
Young knew what was coming and tweeted earlier in the day: “Respect Bills fans. I want to thank the Bills organization for the opportunity and with the organization and my teammates good luck this season.”
It’s been a tough few years for Young since he was exiled by the Titans for inconsistent play on the field and several incidents off it. Young had a disappointing season as Michael Vick’s backup in Philadelphia last year, and couldn’t make it through the preseason with Buffalo.
