The third pick in the 2006 NFL draft, Vince Young's career got off to a strong start for the Tennessee Titans—the quarterback led his team to a 17-11 record in his first two seasons.
Injuries set in early on and prevented Young from maintaining a consistent presence on the field, however.
While possibly on his way to his most successful season in 2010, Young's attitude began to sour with then head coach, Jeff Fisher, and the Titans released him prior to the 2011 season.
Young was then signed by Philadelphia and labeled the Eagles "The Dream Team."
He played in six games that season, but it was apparent Young's career was quickly spiraling downward. The quarterback led the Eagles to a 1-2 record, completing fewer than 58 percent of his passes for 866 yards, four touchdowns and nine interceptions.
The former Pro Bowler signed with the Buffalo Bills in May of 2012, but he was released just three months later.
Young's financial troubles are well-documented and he has recently sent a letter to Fisher wanting to apologize for their past troubles.
Turning 30 in May, he certainly has an uphill climb in his return to the NFL. With plenty of young talent eager to have their names attached to the league, teams would do well to not be fooled by Young's recent enthusiasm for football again.
