Free agent Vince Young's agent says he's in talks with the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders.

We wish the 33-year-old Young luck with his comeback. Canada would be a best-case scenario.
Feb 16 - 7:52 PM

Free agent Vince Young is attempting to make a comeback.

Young recently hired an agent after spending the last two seasons out of the league. He'll be hard pressed to find any interest from teams. Young hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2011.
Feb 15 - 7:52 PM

Vince Young was arrested for DWI early Monday morning in Austin, Texas.

He was booked into Travis County Jail at 12:46 a.m. Monday morning. Bail was set at $2,000. Young has not played a snap since 2011 and was not invited to the Veterans Combine last year. Young is only 32, but his football career is long over.

Updating a previous item, Vince Young will not attend the first-ever Veterans Combine on March 22.

Young, now 31 and in need of money, was not invited to the Combine that will allow roughly 100 veterans to work out for all 32 NFL teams. He hasn't played in the NFL since the failed "Dream Team" Eagles of 2011.

Vince Young will attempt a comeback next month at the veteran combine.

After filing for bankruptcy a year ago, Young's "comeback" is more of a thinly-veiled cash grab. Despite a disappointing career, Young was Rookie of the Year in 2006 and has been to two Pro Bowls. At age 31, he'll be hard-pressed to find a backup job. Young lasted just 11 days on the Browns' roster last spring.

Free agent QB Vince Young has announced his retirement from the NFL.

"I'm retired," Young said. "Unless we get a great opportunity, something guaranteed, I've started moving forward. It's definitely official, in my book." Young briefly signed with the Browns last month, but was released prior to minicamp. He hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2011. Young went 31-19 in six years as a starter, passing for 8,964 career yards, 46 touchdowns, and 51 interceptions. He made two Pro Bowl appearances. Young, 31, said he plans to work for the University of Texas in some capacity.

Browns released QB Vince Young.

The Browns also released "trick-shot artist" QB Alex Tanney. Young's stay on the Browns' roster was never expected to be long, but it's obviously an extremely poor sign for his future that he couldn't even make it to minicamp. Young simply has no upside at this stage of his career. The Browns are wise to save roster space for undrafted free agents. Going on 31, Young has played his last meaningful down of football.
Mon, May 12, 2014 01:04:00 PM

Browns agreed to terms with QB Vince Young on a one-year contract.

The Browns had already signed Tyler Thigpen, but have just Thigpen and "trick-shot artist" Alex Tanney behind Brian Hoyer. At least one quarterback will be added on draft weekend, making one of Young/Thigpen/Tanney expendable. A few weeks shy of his 31st birthday, Young hasn't appeared in a regular season game since 2011. He'll be up against it to crack the 53-man roster.
Thu, May 1, 2014 02:15:00 PM

Sources tell FOX 26 in Houston that free agent QB Vince Young is taking a physical with the Browns Monday.

Young, now 30, is going to get a shot at this week's minicamp in Cleveland. He hopes he can parlay that into a contract that allows him to compete for a roster spot at training camp. Young hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2011, but he's picked the right landing spot this time. Starter Brian Hoyer is coming off an ACL tear and the only other quarterback on the roster right now is Alex Tanney. Young also has a connection to quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains, who was with VY in Tennessee from 2008-11. Tyler Thigpen is also getting a tryout with the Browns this week.

Free agent Vince Young hopes to find a team for the 2014 season.

"I am pleased with the quick resolution of my bankruptcy case," Young said Tuesday. "With all these battles behind me, I am able to devote my sole focus on family, football and pursuing all opportunities in front of me." Young couldn't earn a roster spot in Packers camp last summer, and hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since 2011. His career is likely over.

The Packers are not believed to be interested in re-signing free agent QB Vince Young.

Young, 30, spent 26 days with the Packers during the summer before being a part of final cuts. He completed 20-of-42 preseason passes for 177 yards with zero touchdowns and one lost fumble. It was widely believed that he had sealed up the No. 2 job following the all-important third exhibition game but face-planted in the finale. Young hasn't generated any known interest since.

Packers released QB Vince Young.

It looks like they're rolling with 2012 seventh-rounder B.J. Coleman behind Aaron Rodgers, at least for now. "He stinks," one NFL personnel director told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel of Young. "Looks like he can't retain the plays." Young played solidly in Green Bay's third preseason game, but faceplanted in the finale. V.Y. is still capable of moving an offense on a simplified platform. The Bills should give him a look.
Sat, Aug 31, 2013 10:46:00 AM

After a solid third preseason game against the Seahawks, Vince Young is now considered the frontrunner for the Packers' No. 2 quarterback job.

Mike McCarthy acknowledged as much. "The dimension of running, that’s something we really wanted to see (from Young)," said the Packers' coach. "I think you’re just seeing Vince getting more and more comfortable ... I think Vince is one of the players that definitely took advantage of his opportunities tonight." Whether it be as runners or passers, backup QBs need to be able to move the offense. Young can do that; Graham Harrell can't.
Sat, Aug 24, 2013 11:44:00 AM

Vince Young completed 6-of-7 passes for 41 yards and a touchdown and rushed three times for 39 yards in Friday night's third preseason game.

Your Aaron Rodgers backup (and "handcuff" in deep leagues). Through three preseason appearances, V.Y. is 12-of-19 passing (63.2 percent) for 74 yards, the touchdown, and no turnovers. He's still got some juice in his legs with 58 yards rushing on six scrambles. Young has generally moved the offense and is clearly a superior backup option over Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman.
