Although it’s increasingly looking like Chad Henne will get another year as the Dolphins’ quarterback, it’s also likely that a veteran free agent will end up in Miami as competition for Henne. And it’s possible that that veteran free agent will be Vince Young.
The Titans are expected to release Young soon after the league year begins, and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that an associate of Young’s said the Dolphins would be appealing to him, and Young is not out of the question for Miami.
However, there are a couple of caveats: The Dolphins are apparently concerned that if Young were to sign and then lose a quarterback competition with Henne, he’d quickly become an unhappy camper. And Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland has said that he doesn’t want to bring in a quarterback unless he has no questions about that quarterback’s accountability and dependability. Those haven’t exactly been Young’s strongest traits during his NFL career.
So Young is far from a perfect fit in Miami. But going into the season with Henne as the unquestioned starter isn’t a perfect situation either.
