Vince Young To Workout At Texas Pro Day

Don’t call it a comeback but Vince Young is going to workout for NFL scouts on Texas’s Pro Day on March according to Stewart Mandel of Sports Illustrated. Here is Stewart Mandel’s tweet:


Now some in the media are not happy that Vince Young is getting another chance to workout in front of NFL teams. Mac Engel of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram had to insult the amount of credits that Vince Young has attained (which he doesn’t know) and Darin Gantt of Pro Football Talk made a tongue-in-cheek comment about Vince Young’s financial decisions.

I guess when you can insult someone’s ability on the field, you have to make fun of their decisions off the field. Not only was Vince Young a stellar collegiate quarterback, but was a decent NFL quarterback. Vince Young was 31-19 as a starter in the NFL. In his final 2 years as a starter in 2009 and 2010, he had the 2nd and 4th best QBR ratings in the league respectively.

Vince Young is a polarizing athlete for some reason, and NFL teams are much more willing to take a risk on a younger quarterback than one who is 29 years old. All Young needs is 1 team to take one more chance on him and I believe he will get that chance.
