Free agent quarterback Vince Young will work out for the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday, Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports.
The No. 3 overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans, Young started three games for an injured Michael Vick last season with the Philadelphia Eagles, completing
57.9 percent of 114 pass attempts for 866 yards with four touchdowns and
nine interceptions. In 61 games during his career, including 50 starts, the two-time Pro Bowler has completed 57.9 percent of 1,304 pass attempts for 8,964 yards with 46 touchdowns and 51 interceptions.
Young, who turns 29 later this month, has not made a free agent visit since his contract with the Eagles expired at the end of the league year.
The Bills are invested in starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, signing him to a $52.57 million contract extension last October. Depth at the position is an issue for the Bills, with wide receiver/quarterback Brad Smith and Tyler Thigpen currently backing up Fitzpatrick. Young's athleticism, and ability to throw on the move, make him a good fit scheme-wise in Chan Gailey's offense.
