Vince Young: How Many Teams Have Interest in Titans' Former QB?
Young Will Get a Chance, but Destination Unknown
Vince Young's emotional turmoil and lack of maturity will cost him a lot of money, but he probably still will have a job once the season begins, if it ever does.
Young is due nearly $13 million in salary and bonuses next season, meaning there is little chance any team engages in trade talks with Tennessee for Young's services. With Tennessee moving on, they will be forced to release Young and get nothing in return.
Considering how erratic Young has been in Tennessee, it is the cheaper alternative. There are plenty of options for Young—he will just have to take a pay cut.
Miami has been one of the more talked-about destinations for Young, but a Miami writer revealed this week he heard talk the Redskins also are in the mix.
"News to me," a Redskins source tells Eric Edholm of Pro Football Weekly.
Edholm says there's not much chance of the Redskins trading for Young. "The source did not believe a trade was imminent," Edholm writes, "because Shanahan has put a premium on collecting -- not giving away -- draft picks since coming aboard to right the ship."
If Young is released by the Tennessee Titans, would the Redskins pursue him in free agency? "Although signing Young after he's released isn't out of the possibility," Edholm writes, "it might not be of the highest priority."
There are a handful of veteran quarterbacks looking for new teams, and Young is one of the more desirable ones because he is not injured and he under the age of 30.
Young's problems have been between the ears in that he does not handle adversity well. When things are going well, Young is the man, but if things start going wrong, Young tends to unravel.
Miami is not a good place for any quarterback at the moment with Brian Daboll installed as the offensive coordinator. Daboll put one of the worst offenses on the field for two years in Cleveland and now will get the chance to do that in Miami.
Young would be a better fit with the Redskins, but his best landing spot would be a place where there would be no pressure to win this year.
Good luck finding a team like that in the modern-day NFL.
