Lawyer tries to stop company from collecting $1.7M debt from Bills' Young wire reports

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Vince Young's attorney disputes his client owes a loan company nearly $1.7 million, and questions whether the Buffalo Bills quarterback was even aware a loan was taken out in his name.

Trey Dolezal says Pro Player Funding never contacted Young, and instead worked with the player's former financial adviser, Ronnie T. Peoples, in issuing a high-interest $1.877 million loan in May 2011.

Pro Player says Young defaulted on that loan in May, when failing to make a payment shortly after signing with Buffalo. The company has filed documents in court saying it has the legal right to collect $1.695 million owed by Young.

Dolezal intends to file a motion to have Pro Player's order set aside, and also stop company representatives from "harassing" Young as they have at training camp.
