Over the last two seasons, quarterback Vince Young has gone from being a two-time Pro Bowler for the Tennessee Titans, to backup quarterback on the Philadelphia Eagles to an unsigned free agent over a month into the signing period.
During an appearance on KILT in his hometown of Houston, Texas, the former third overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft was asked if he still envisions himself as a starting quarterback in the National Football League.
"Yeah definitely," Young said according to Chris Fedor of Sports Radio Interviews. "Always want to go in and compete for the starting job and the things that I put myself through to get better and better and to better myself as a quarterback, just waiting on that opportunity to get the chance to do that."
Young did start three games for an injured Michael Vick last season, completing 57.9 percent of 114 pass attempts for 866 yards with four touchdowns and nine interceptions. Young has yet to take a free agent visit, but says a few teams are interested, though nothing is expected to happen until after the draft.
"We have a couple of teams with interest right now and I’m just sitting back and waiting and letting my agent, Tom Condon, do his work," said Young. "Pretty much just waiting till after the draft with the new CBA rule, all the different cap rules and things like that, just looking for the best opportunity for myself, my family and for me to go out and compete for a starting job."
