It has been a little over three weeks since Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams announced that his quarterback Vince Young would not be returning to the team for next season. Instead they will either try to trade or release him as they search for their next quarterback.
The announcement should have led to many teams making phone calls to the Titans organization to inquire about getting Young's services for the up-coming season. It's not everyday that a starting-caliber quarterback is on the market for next to nothing.
Despite all of the reports out there about Young's lack of work ethic, and him being a diva, there is no question that he can still play the game better than most quarterbacks in the league.
Young might not be putting huge numbers week in and week out, but he is a player who does enough for his team to win games. Sure he isn't out there throwing for 300 yards every game, but he is doing the little things right and is putting his team in positions to win each game they play in. His career record of 30-17 illustrates this.
Before a thumb injury ended his season prematurely, Young was having what could have been a career year.
Young threw for 1,255 yards, ten touchdowns and just three interceptions in nine games this year. He also completed 59.6% of his passes and had a quarterback rating of 98.6, easily the highest total throughout his five year career.
In my eyes there are twelve teams in the NFL who should pick up the phone and try to get Vince Young to improve their quarterback play for the 2011-12 season. Even with some question marks he still can be an above average NFL quarterback, and help a team get over the hump and get into the playoffs.
Here are the 12 teams in play (or rumored to be) for a new quarterback for the up-coming season and their chances of landing Vince Young for their squad.
