Former-Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Vince Young is eyeing up another season in the NFL.

The 30-year-old, who recently reached a settlement with his creditors in his bankruptcy case, wants another chance to impress in the league.

And he will start training in San Diego over the next couple of months with a view to working out with different NFL teams in the preseason.

"I am pleased with the quick resolution of my bankruptcy case," Young's spokesman said in a statement released to ESPN.

"With all these battles behind me, I am able to devote my sole focus on family, football and pursing all opportunities in front of me."

Young was selected with the third pick of the 2006 NFL draft by the Tennessee Titans, but his professional career failed to live up to the expectations generated by his college career at the University of Texas.

From the Titans he moved to the Eagles, then the Bills and finally he completed a very brief stint with the Green Bay Packers.

The two-time Pro Bowler threw 46 touchdowns and 51 interceptions as well as 8,964 yards during his six-year career to date.

He was be available as a free agent and teams will likely look at him as a potential back-up or third string option heading into training camp.
