The Washington Redskins need a quarterback. Vince Young needs a team. Could that mean VY is heading to DC?
Maybe. Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel, in a piece exploring the possibility of Young taking his talents to South Beach, writes that he’s hearing the Redskins are the front-runners to land Young’s services.
As Florio noted on today’s PFT Live, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is trying to spread the word that he’d be comfortable with John Beck as his 2011 starter, but no one really believes that. And as Florio also noted, Young will almost certainly be released within the first 10 days of the league year, as Young is due a bonus of $4.5 million on the 10th day of the league year.
So Young heading to the Redskins could make some sense. At least, it makes more sense than the Redskins heading into 2011 with John Beck atop the depth chart.
