QB Young Out of the Game, Out of Money
DALLAS (AP) - Six years after entering the NFL as the third player taken in the draft, Vince Young finds himself without a team and with only a fraction of the money he received from a contract that guaranteed him $26 million. The question is, where did it all go?
The quarterback who led Texas to a Rose Bowl victory in 2006 is back in Houston after being cut by the Buffalo Bills. He's also in a tenuous financial condition as a caustic series of legal actions focus on what happened to his money.
Some portray Young as an out-of-control spender who put himself deeply in the hole. Others describe him as a victim of inexperienced advisers.
Young's attorney says of his client just "needs a job."
