Not Forever Young
The Tennessee Titans have informed quarterback Vince Young that he won’t return to the team next season. In a statement, Titans owner Bud Adams informed general manager Mike Reinfeldt that Young wouldn’t be on the roster next year and the GM should start looking for the team’s next quarterback. Young appeared in nine games, eight as a starter, this year before suffering a season-ending torn flexor tendon in his right thumb in a Week 11 loss to the Washington Redskins. For the season, he completed 93-of-156 passes for 1,255 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions in a 2010 that also saw him battle knee and ankle injuries, and at odds with head coach Jeff Fisher. Young was the third overall pick by the Titans in the 2006 NFL Draft after a star-studded college career at the University of Texas. During his five seasons, Young is 30-17 as a starter, with career totals of 8,098 yards passing, 42 touchdown passes and 42 interceptions, while being sacked 75 times.
