“Pleased with the quick resolution of (his) bankruptcy case,” free agent Vince Young said Saturday that he hopes to find a job for the 2014 season.
After being named the team’s backup quarterback following a 17-10 exhibition loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay released Young roughly three weeks later on August 31.
“I am pleased with the quick resolution of my bankruptcy case,” said Young, 30, who became a collegiate legend as a Texas Longhorn. “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.”
Although not exactly Johnny Unitas, the two-time Pro Bowler remains a somewhat intriguing talent.
Relying on a hideous sidearm throwing motion, the dimmed star tossed 46 touchdowns, against 51 picks, for 8,964 yards over 60 games as a professional.
Trying to atone for porous passing statistics, Young also managed to scramble for 1,459 yards and 12 scores on the ground.
Unfortunately, despite going 30-17 as Tennessee’s starter, Young won’t receive many “opportunities.”
“With all these battles,” it’s safe to predict that Vince Young’s career as a professional athlete is over.by
