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.
