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.
