Charity game, future have QB's attention
Vince Young wants to leave the past in the past even though he faces a future full of unknowns."Life is good," said the former Titans quarterback, who's in Nashville to take pa
rt in the Celebrity Basketball Slam Jam at Tennessee Statetoday. "Right now, I am just enjoying it and waiting to see what happens next.
"Being back in Nashville, I always get a warm welcome when I come back, a lot of hugs, a lot of welcome back wishes. I know some people want to talk about negative things that went on when I was here, but I have great memories from here. It's all good to me."
Young, released by the Titans after the 2010 season, played for the Eagles last season as Michael Vick's backup. Now he's a free agent.
Young said he expects to have several teams to choose from, but not until after the NFL Draft on April 26-28 — which also happens to be the weekend he's getting married in Cabo San Lucas.
what do y'all think happens with him? I know I have a higher opinion of him than I should, but I could definitely see a team like Miami bringing him in to compete for a starting spot if they don't get a QB in the draft (Tannehill) but that's probably his only shot to start at this point, I could also see him winding up back with the Eagles backing up Vick if nobody gives him an offer to start. I would say he could provide a decent stop gap for a team that drafts someone, but I don't know how he'd look at that opportunity and I'm not sure any front office would want to put him in that position, usually you want to bring in an old vet who can mentor the rookie (see Hasselbeck/Locker) so I'm really not sure what happens with him at this point.
