The Buffalo Bills cut ties with quarterback Vince Young on Monday, one day after the team acquired Tarvaris Jackson in a trade, reports.

Young completed 12 of his 26 pass attempts and sealed his fate when he threw two interceptions against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Saturday's preseason game.

Young signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Bills in May, after spending last season with the Philadelphia Eagles. He spent his first five seasons with the Tennessee Titans, who drafted him third overall in the 2006 NFL Draft.
