Vince Young will be taking part in the University of Texas’ pro day on March 26 and will work out in front of a myriad of NFL clubs and will attempt to return to the NFL, according to NFL.com. He was signed with the Buffalo Bills last season but was released before the season began.
Speaking with the radio program “NFL AM” Young said:
“I don’t really feel like it was my game. I just really feel like (it was) some of the off-the-field issues,” Young said about being cut. “I really feel like teams don’t want their quarterback to be in a position where they’re distracted.
“I was young at the time and I put my trust in a lot of people. I was getting taken advantage of. Basically I’m the victim of the situation. Just got to clean up that mess, just to let teams know I’m a little bit more mature than I used to be. I’ve grown a whole lot.”
Young has said that his financial problems (Young was revealed to be broke, a problem he blamed on his financial advisers and former agent misappropriating funds, as well as a $1.7 million lawsuit involving a lockout loan) and maintains that his name will be cleared on all financial charges.
Young hasn’t played a game in the NFL since 2011 when he was with the Philadelphia Eagles.
