Vince Young: His Options for Next Season
Vince Young is going to be traded or let go before the beginning of next season in the NFL. The Tennessee Titans have officially announced their plans to move on without the controversial quarterback.
When Young joins a new team, it will mark the first time all five QBs drafted in Young's class will have moved on from the teams that drafted them.
The Titans seemed to be a great fit when they drafted Young, needed a QB with a strong arm and good scramble abilities to fit in with a fast-paced offense and a mediocre offensive line. However, constant conflicts between Young and head coach Jeff Fisher really strained the situation.
At one point, Young even disappeared without his cell phone when the stress became too much to bare. Now, Young's statements pin most of the blame on Fisher, and the team has had enough.
Teams that could house Young comfortably include the Baltimore Ravens, San Francisco 49ers, and Carolina Panthers. With the Ravens, Young would once again assume the back-up role behind Joe Flacco. He would be another option in different short-yardage situations.
The Smith tandem in San Francisco is not proving successful this far, and it may be time to pull the plug as Jim Harbaugh may be taking over. Harbaugh could handle Young's persona and get more production out of him as a solid leader.
Finally, the Panthers will be missing out on Andrew Luck, as he has elected to return to Stanford, spurning an obvious No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. With Luck out of the picture, it opens a spot in Carolina, one a struggling team will be eager to fill with anyone that shows potential talent.
