Vince Young makes return with Cleveland Browns

Published Add your comment

Vince Young could be about to make a comeback to the National Football League, with the Cleveland Browns.

The 30-year old quarterback hasn't made a teams 53 man roster since 2011 with the Philadelphia Eagles, but is hoping to get his chance now, three years later.

From MyFox Houston

"NFL sources told FOX 26 Sports free agent quarterback Vince Young will take a physical today with the Cleveland Browns and work out with the team during this week's mini camp with hopes of landing a contract."

'VY' was an absolute bonafide star in college, leading the Texas Longhorns to two BCS Championship Games - getting the MVP award both times - as well as one of the greatest performances in NCAA history when he accounted for 467 yards of total offense (200 rushing, 267 passing) and three rushing touchdowns, including a 9-yard TD scramble on 4th down with 19 seconds left, to lead the Longhorns to a 41–38 victory.  

Young started his career with the Tennessee Titans, being taken 3rd overall in the 2006 Draft, but after falling out with them he bounced from the Philadelphia Eagle to the Buffalo Bills and spent a preseason stint with the Green Bay Packers last year.

After begging for work on Twitter and filing for bankruptcy having spent most of his estimated $60million dollar earnings, Young has secured a workout with the QB needy Browns in the hope that he can finally nail down a permanent roles as a career backup in the NFL.
