Bills Cut Quarterback Vince Young as NFL Clubs Reduce Rosters

The Buffalo Bills cut quarterback Vince Young, one day after acquiring Tarvaris Jackson from the Seattle Seahawks, the team said in an e-mailed statement.

Young, 29, threw two interceptions in the Bills’ 38-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Aug. 25. Today is the deadline for National Football League teams to reduce rosters to 75 active players.

A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Young spent his first five NFL seasons with the Tennessee Titans after being taken with the third pick in the 2006 draft. He was 30-17 as a starter with the Titans, and was released in January 2011 after having a verbal confrontation with coach Jeff Fisher.

He played last season with the Philadelphia Eagles, going 1-2 in three starts in place of an injured Michael Vick.
