Vince Young, the former Pro Bowl quarterback who sat out 2012 after getting cut at the end of the Bills’ training camp, is hoping he caught the eye of NFL teams today.
Young worked out at the Pro Day at his alma mater, Texas, and afterward Young’s agent Jerry Marlatt told the Associated Press that Young did what he had to do as part of a first step toward getting another chance in the NFL.
“He’s showing teams he’s been working out, throwing and getting ready,” Marlatt said.
Texas coach Mack Brown encouraged Young to participate in the Pro Day, which is usually for players who just completed their college careers, not for players who were drafted seven years ago.
“Go work out, show them you’re in great shape, that you’re not laying around pouting . . . that you want another chance,” Brown said he told Young. “I hope he gets a chance to lead a team again.”
That chance hasn’t come yet, but Young is going to continue putting out the word that he’s ready if some team is interested.
