Titans say they have received some interest in Vince Young

TitansChristmas

Vince Young should still be a Tennessee Titan if and when a work stoppage hits in March.  Titans G.M. Mike Reinfeldt says, however, that other teams have showed some interest in Young.

“We have had some discussions. But nothing is imminent with him. There is some [interest], but it is hard, though,” Reinfeldt told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

It will be impossible to move Young before March 4, and it may be close to impossible afterwards.  Young is due a $4.25 million bonus on the 10th day of the new league year, whenever that comes.

No team will be willing to pay that bonus.  Any team that is interested in Young would likely just wait for the Titans to cut Young instead of giving up draft picks for him.  (We suspect the interest the Titans have received so far has been casual.  Like “When are you going to cut Vince Young?”)

It also doesn’t serve Young’s interest to re-negotiate his deal before the bonus is up because his earning potential should be best as a free agent.

The Titans should try their best to trade Young after a work stoppage.  That doesn’t mean they are likely to be successful.

    Vince and his teammate made a point to remind the photographer they were there as Bud’s “elves” for the event, and not his “fairies”.

    That picture is flawless…with that being said, Young has talent, but no one is going to pay that kind of money for his flaky at best leadership skills.

    Hey Vince, put in a good word for Doug Willimas in Oakland.

    VY = Cam Newton prequel. Titans should cut him so they can draft Cam Newton in the 1st.

    Translation:

    Please, someone, for the love of God, show some interest in Vince Young.

    fullerman–mentally toast? You mean you think he has more psychological problems than, say, Michael Vick?

    31 wins ….stop acting like he’s not valuable.

    I’m no super fan of his, but get real. He has talent and we all know in this league it doesn’t matter who you are or what you did off the field that truly matters.

    His winning will get him another shot…if he messes it up or not is the question.

    There are at least 7 teams that seriously need a qb that have to consider Young.

    A lot of teams could do worse and have. To bad he got screwed over by Adams and Fisher with their soap opera. sure, he still needs to mature a little, but VY does have a winning record – better than a lot of other teams QBs.
