GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - 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, when teams are required to trim rosters to 53 players.

``Thanks to (Packers) for the opportunity ... Wonderful fans. Good luck this season,'' Young posted.

He struggled Thursday in the final preseason game against the Chiefs going 14 of 30 for 144 yards with two fumbles. That followed a strong showing the previous week against the Seahawks.

The Packers signed Young on Aug. 6.

Before that, he was out of football for a year after being cut by the Buffalo Bills.

Drafted by the Titans, Young has had a checkered career as a starter in Tennessee and as a backup to Michael Vick with the Philadelphia Eagles. He's been to two Pro Bowls, and has a 74.4 career passer rating.

The Packers may still be looking for a veteran backup. Coleman was 2 of 7 for 19 yards against the Chiefs.

Green Bay also released veteran backup Graham Harrell earlier in the preseason. Harrell has since signed with the Jets.
