Free-Agent QB Vince Young Campaigns for Houston Texans Job

Kyle NewportFeatured ColumnistOctober 13, 2013

The Houston Texans started the season 2-0 but are on their way to a fourth straight loss, and free-agent quarterback Vince Young is letting his hometown team know that he is ready to go.

After throwing a pick-six in each of the previous four games, Houston quarterback Matt Schaub left due to an ankle injury while his team was getting blown out on Sunday. T.J. Yates came in and kept that streak alive, as Alec Ogletree returned a pick 98 yards for a touchdown near the end of the third quarter.

Young failed to make Green Bay's roster in the preseason, but the Texans may end up looking for help at some point if Schaub can't turn the team's season around.
