If unwilling to play in the CFL, Vince Young is destined to remain jobless in 2013


Vince Young needs to buy a suit and hope for an interview.

With the Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks no longer interested in the controversial free agent, quarterback Vince Young will likely remain unemployed this autumn.

A two-time Pro Bowler who became a collegiate legend as a Texas Longhorn, the 30-year-old Young hasn’t earned an NFL paycheck since working for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011.

Once an option for the Raiders, Oakland instead chose Tyler Wilson with the 112th pick in April’s draft.

Roughly three weeks before taking Tyler, the Silver and Black acquired signal-caller Matt Flynn from Seattle in exchange for a fifth-round selection in 2014 and a “conditional” late-round choice in 2015.

Removed from a 4-12 finish in the AFC West, the Raiders aren’t exactly brimming with offensive talent and Flynn doesn’t possess the type of arm that can compensate for Oakland’s shortcomings.

Still, with Wilson, Flynn and Terrelle Pryor on their roster, the 6-foot-5, 232 pound Young is an afterthought in the Bay Area.

Relying on a hideous sidearm throwing motion, the dimmed star tossed 46 touchdowns, against 51 picks, for 8,964 yards in 60 games as a professional.

Trying to atone for porous passing statistics, Young managed to scramble for 1,459 yards and 12 scores on the ground.

Not wanted in “The Town” or Seattle, the 2006 AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year must consider competing in the CFL.

If the financially struggling athlete refuses to relocate to Canada, Vince Young is destined to stay jobless in 2013.
