After a terrible preseason with the Buffalo Bills, Vince Young will reportedly have a chance to make a return to the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals.

Young, the former first round pick of the Tennessee Titans in 2006, was hoping to land a backup role with the Bills this season, but was a major disappointment in the preseason, completing only 48.1 percent of his passes, while throwing two interceptions and zero touchdowns in three games. The Bills decided to cut ties with Young, and brought in Tarvaris Jackson from the Seahawks, who has yet to see the field in 2012. In his career, Young has passed for 8964 yards with 46 touchdowns and 51 interceptions.
The Arizona Cardinals have been searching for help at the quarterback position ever since receiving news that Kevin Kolb would be out an estimated 6-8 weeks with rib cartilage damage. With opening day starter John Skelton back from an ankle injury, the team currently has only rookie Ryan Lindley listed on their depth chart going into Sunday’s game against the Vikings.
The combination of Skelton/Kolb rank 28th in the NFL with 199.8 yards per game, and 27th in the NFL with a 56.6 percent completion percentage.
