Former University of Texas and Houston Madison High School quarterback Vince Young believes his NFL career is over after 7 seasons.
“It’s definitely official I think in my book,” Young told Brent Carney of KXAN-TV in Austin, TX. “Unless we get a great opportunity, something guaranteed…other than that I’ve started moving forward in some things.”
A two-time pro bowler with the Tennessee Titans, Young last played for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011.
Young latched on with the Buffalo Bills in 2012 before being cut in training camp. He signed with the Green Bay Packers in 2013 but was again released before the regular season.
Today, Young reaffirmed his plans to work at his alma mater, the University of Texas, in some capacity. “Right now we’re going through details."
Young prepped at Houston Madison High School before leading the longhorns to the 2005 BCS National Championship.
After forever etching his name into college football history, the Tennessee Titans selected Young with the 3rd overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft where he spent 5 seasons as their starting quarterback until being released after a clash with head coach Jeff Fisher.
“I had my ups and downs. I made the mistake of getting in to it with my coach and that kind of hurt me a whole lot. When you go to different teams, they already have a bad perception of you. When that’s out there, there’s nothing you can do,” he said.
