Former Titans starting quarterback Vince Young remains hopeful of resuming his NFL career and came close to playing professional football this season. Montreal holds his Canadian playing rights and the team had negotiated a contract with Young when it became thin at the quarterback position, according to a source with knowledge of the sitation.
However, the team insisted on a two-year contract, wanting Young to solve it’s quarterback problem beyond this season, while Young would only agree to a deal for the remainder of the 2013 season. Talks broke down and Montreal ended up signing former Ravens backup Troy Smith to fill its void.
Young had a brief stint with the Packers in the preseason, but, he came in very late and didn’t have a chance to really absorb the playbook.
