The Titans plan to trade or cut quarterback Vince Young. With only a few days to trade him before that $4.25 million roster bonus becomes earned, they’ll be cutting him instead.
Terry McCormick of TitanInsider reports that the Titans will dump Young on Thursday, the first day that player cuts may be made.
Young is intriguing because he has played well at times, with a couple of high-profile meltdowns. That’s prompted some (i.e., us) to wonder whether a different coach would be able to better shepherd Young through the rough spots.
Said a trusted media source who isn’t a Jeff Fisher guy, “It wasn’t Fisher. It was Young.”
Still, there’s also a coach who thinks he can be the guy to get the best out of a player with a high amount of potential. Given that there simply aren’t enough good quarterbacks to go around in the NFL, someone will take a chance on the guy whose tremendous performance in the 2005 BCS title game helped USC avoid the indignity of being stripped of two national championships.
