Cleveland Browns To Work Out Former Packers QB Vince Young
I guess the Packers weren’t so crazy last year after all.
According to NFL.com Around the League Writer Dan Hanzus, the AFC North’s Cleveland Browns, a team currently without a good starting QB after getting rid of Brandon Weeden earlier this offseason, will give Free Agent veteran Vince Young a chance to work out during a minicamp session this week.
Young, as you may or may not remember, briefly played for Green Bay during last year’s preseason, nearly making the roster as the club’s backup hurler before a week 4, 14 of 30 for 144 yards disaster in Kansas City made him get released.
Now since this guy hasn’t played in a meaningful game since 2012 (when he uncontributively backed up for the “dream team” 8-8 Eagles before spending the 2012 preseason in Buffalo) and I was kind of rooting for him last year, I’ll go ahead and say I support him here.
At age 30, the odds of him making the Browns, or any NFL or Canadian Football League team for that matter, are obviously pretty stacked against him, but it could happen. I guess that’s enough of a reason to pay attention to this.
