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 quickly became 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.
Regardless, not wanted in “The Town,” the 2006 AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year will have to consider competing for the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL.
If the financially struggling athlete refuses to relocate to the “City of Mary,” expect Vince Young to remain jobless this autumn.by
