Former Titans, Eagles and Bills quarterback Vince Young is eager to talk to any NFL team that will hear him out in an effort to explain why he deserves another chance in the NFL. He may have found one team that’s at least willing to listen.
Young is in talks with the Raiders about visiting them for a workout, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Rapoport cautioned that those talks are “preliminary,” so we’re probably not going to be seeing Young in the Silver and Black any time soon.
Still, even “preliminary” interest is more than Young has been generating elsewhere since the Bills cut him during the 2012 preseason. Young has said repeatedly that he wants another shot in the league (in large part because he needs the money), and the Raiders appear to be the closest thing he has found to a taker.
Oakland currently has two quarterbacks on the roster, Carson Palmer and Terrelle Pryor, and it’s unclear what the Raiders’ plans are at the position. It won’t be easy for Young to convince an NFL team to give him a shot, but Young in Oakland might just be crazy enough to work.
