(UPDATE: The Bills announced at 12:21 p.m. they had released Vince Young.)

Vince Young has tweeted his farewell to the Buffalo Bills and their fans, signaling his departure from the club in the wake of the Tarvaris Jackson trade.
"I want to thank the Bills organization for the opportunity and wish the organization and my teammates good luck this season."
"Respect Bills fans."
The Bills have not made an official announcement yet, but usually when a player makes a public statement the team isn't far behind.
Young seemed to have locked up Buffalo's No. 2 quarterback job a week ago, but an awful performance in the second half Saturday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers obviously changed General Manager Buddy Nix's and coach Chan Gailey's minds.
In Young's three preseason games, he completed 48.1 percent of his passes for 276 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions. He was sacked three times. Young ran seven times for 39 yards and was charged with a fumble.
