To put it frank—while in college, Vince Young may have made a case to be the best quarterback to ever play in the 2000s.
That might be extremely high-praise for a guy who didn't work out in the NFL, but for anyone who watched him at the University of Texas, they understand why he tossed his name in the argument.
Drafted No. 3 overall in the quarterback-heavy 2006 draft by the Tennessee Titans, Young had some solid seasons in Nashville, but has ultimately lacked the focus to become as great as he could have been.
What Happened? Not that it had much to do with his play on the field—though it did show his lack of maturity and priorities—Young reportedly spent as much as $5,000/week at the Cheesecake Factory, as per USA Today.
When he wasn't dropping dough like crazy, he was clashing with his then coach, Jeff Fisher, even going as far as getting the cops called on him for fear of his safety after being benched due to injury.
Though he bounced around to some other teams, Young is currently a free agent.
Shining Moment: Besides winning the national title game at Texas in 2006—and earning the game's MVP—he did capture the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year Award in his first season.
