Vince Young wants to play again, hires agent Leigh Steinberg

vince-young-net-worth

Vince Young is hoping his football career isn’t over.

Young has hired agent Leigh Steinberg, who announced on Twitter today that Young has a “dream of playing more football.”

That Steinberg used the word “dream” suggests that he and Young realize it will be an uphill battle to get back to the NFL. Young hasn’t played in a regular season game since 2011, when he threw four touchdown passes and nine interceptions for the Eagles. He has spent time with the Bills, Packers and Browns since then but never made it past the preseason.

The fledgling Spring League has already said it would be interested in Young, so he’s got someone interested in him. But the Spring League is a long, long way from the NFL. It’s highly likely that Young has played his last NFL game, even if, at age 33, he’s not quite ready to say definitively that he’s done.

    Just let it go man.

    You probably couldn’t even play in the CFL anymore.

    Sounds like someone has run out of money.

  4. mclennon99 says: Feb 15, 2017 6:14 PM

    Translation: Vince Young is broke!

  5. dickshotdogs says: Feb 15, 2017 6:19 PM

    You know, I can’t even muster the least bit of criticism. His story is about as sad as it gets. You’re still a young man, Vince. I hope you’ve received good financial advice in the past several years and followed it. I believe your NFL dream is in the rear view window. Good luck.

    Mirror, not window.

    …GO AWAY!…doesn’t the nfl have a “no loitering” policy?

  8. patsfan4lifesbchamps says: Feb 15, 2017 6:23 PM

    Yes he is 33 but the last two SBs were won by a 39 year old geezer at QB. #perspective

  9. 3yardsndust says: Feb 15, 2017 6:24 PM

    Funny how quickly the money goes.

  10. weepingjebus says: Feb 15, 2017 6:26 PM

    So he’ll need a dream team.

    he didn’t even have a speech prepared at steve mcnair’s funeral.

  13. stillabucsfan says: Feb 15, 2017 6:36 PM

    He’d be an upgrade in Cleveland or San Francisco 😂😂😂

  14. genericcommenter says: Feb 15, 2017 6:39 PM

    People keep saying he must have run out of money, but I thought he ran out of money years ago (while he was still the The League, if you believe some reports).

  15. bemylovetractor says: Feb 15, 2017 6:50 PM

    Raiders will take him, back up. The next Oakland Leader!

  16. abninf says: Feb 15, 2017 6:50 PM

    Last report last year that he was broke and in debt for over a million dollars. He’s thrown untold millions of dollars in the toilet and flushed it away due to lack of intelligence.

    The Happy Gilmore of football.

  18. flavordave says: Feb 15, 2017 6:55 PM

    Its not promising when the Browns release you in preseason, like 5 years ago!

  19. jeremycrowhurst says: Feb 15, 2017 7:03 PM

    I hope Steinberg is getting paid by the hour, rather than on a percentage basis.

  20. geemoney9 says: Feb 15, 2017 7:05 PM

    You mean to tell me RG3 or Tyrod Taylor is better than VY, I don’t think so

  21. starfan79 says: Feb 15, 2017 7:06 PM

    He invested in trucking out in the oil fields.. probably lost a lot.

  22. jchipwood says: Feb 15, 2017 7:12 PM

    Mike Tomlin will sign him.

  23. aliveguy24 says: Feb 15, 2017 7:26 PM

    Damn Shame. I thought this guy would be decent. Can’t believe the way he just fell off.

    When the results of his Wonderlic test leaked he didn’t know how many months of the year ended in BER…….Yep a junior in college doesn’t know what my 7 year old already knows…..

    Not only does he not have any value as a football player, he doesn’t have any value as a productive human being. Being dumb, stupid, ignorant and broke is no way to go through life.

  27. rc33 says: Feb 15, 2017 8:25 PM

    I’m not joking when I say I’d rather take a shot at Steve Young.

  28. briang123 says: Feb 15, 2017 8:29 PM

    In a league where Blake Bortles, Brock Osweiler, Brian Hoyer, and Matt Schaub have jobs, why not?

  29. revren10 says: Feb 15, 2017 8:41 PM

    He could start for the Jets or the Dolphins immediately

  30. rodgerstonelson says: Feb 15, 2017 8:44 PM

    I have a dream of winning Powerball….I probably have a better chance than Vince Young does of playing in the NFL again.

  31. maiphatdong says: Feb 15, 2017 8:52 PM

    Vince Old

  32. binarymath says: Feb 15, 2017 8:57 PM

    “That Steinberg used the word “dream” suggests that he and Young …”

    1. FAIL to realize the number of people who still remember (and uncontrollably laugh at) Young’s infamous ‘dream team’ quote with the Eagles.

    2. suspect that this new dream will end as poorly as the dream team

    3. purposely omitted the word ‘pipe’ from the original release. If they had said ‘pipe dream’ the story would have made more sense. The current story makes me wonder which of them is ON the pipe…

    4. each secretly hopes that the other one can somehow restore relevance to both of them

  33. contra74 says: Feb 15, 2017 9:10 PM

    Vince Young would be an instant upgrade to almost every position on the Packers.

    Yes this includes the coaching staff and front office as well.

    Why not? Just like Tebow with baseball, what’s wrong with trying?

  36. steelerfan63 says: Feb 15, 2017 9:29 PM

    I’m just so happy that he has the free college education to fall back on.Thank god.

  37. manderson4150 says: Feb 15, 2017 9:38 PM

    Did he play the first time?

  38. drunkraider says: Feb 15, 2017 9:51 PM

    Vince, Jamarcus, Tebow, and ole johnny nose candy should have a reality show together.

  39. maxkingpin says: Feb 15, 2017 10:14 PM

    VY could not make it as a back up or even 3rd string on Buffalo a few years back.
    He needs to go back to his job at UTex, & ask someone to help him learn to budget.

  40. ratbastardshanahandjob says: Feb 15, 2017 10:18 PM

    There is more of a chance Vince (not-so) Young can retake the Wonderlic test and score higher then a 6. Then getting back and making an NFL roster…..

    Hey what is the “great playaaa” Jamarcus doing these days???

  41. ninerboi2 says: Feb 15, 2017 10:26 PM

    Oh man lemme grab my popcorn for the comments on this article

  42. Bonerz'NPudz says: Feb 15, 2017 10:47 PM

    Had no idea he was on the Bills from that thumbnail above.

  43. jmscooby says: Feb 15, 2017 11:16 PM

    I’m sorry, but working in the NFL is a privilege. Didn’t UT give him a 6 figure salary once he threw this away? I’ll say no more…

  44. hegotjackedup says: Feb 15, 2017 11:30 PM

    Bruh…

  45. mcmccii says: Feb 15, 2017 11:30 PM

    He should hit up the strippers for some of his money back.

  46. justintuckrule says: Feb 16, 2017 12:26 AM

    Even as old as he is and how long ago he played, you telling me he was a worse option than that Connor cook fellow even cold off the couch?

  47. nevalha says: Feb 16, 2017 3:40 AM

    “Vince Old”

    That should not have made me laugh as hard as it did.

  48. lance19 says: Feb 16, 2017 5:24 AM

    He’s 33?!?

    Damn, seems like he’s been gone from the league
    for 33 years!

  49. 1historian says: Feb 16, 2017 9:28 AM

    sad

  50. mclennon99 says: Feb 16, 2017 10:10 AM

    He is aware that he won’t be playing Matt Leinart, right?

  51. orivar says: Feb 17, 2017 3:57 PM

    He played well during the Packers pre-season and still didn’t get a job at all, or got calls for the “lesser” teams and decided no.

    It has to be one of the two and I’m thinking the latter because there’s no way HE didn’t get called but Case Keenum keeps finding a job.

    ————

    Speaking of FAIL, I’m an Eagles fan, he was asked during a preseason team interview what it’s like to be on a team with so many notable stars at the time and his response was “it’s like a dream-team.” Nobody laughed at him because of ti at the time because it was an interview and he wasn’t outright calling them a dream team, just stating how he felt about being able to play with guys who were at the time Superstars.

    The media latched on to that one insignificant portion and then the fans followed behind.

    Get your facts right.

    Vincent Young – I am a UT guy from the 70’s and have seen a great deal of Longhorn football. You were a stud at the college game and that’s about it, man. You were never an NFL caliber player and you sure as hell aren’t now. Keep your job at the Longhorn Network and live on what the university over pays you.
