Report: Vince Young to try out for Packers on Monday
He didn't play at all in 2012, but Vince Young will get another shot at the NFL. This time, it's reportedly with the Packers.
Young tried out with the Raiders a few months ago, and he reportedly had a strong performance at the 2013 University of Texas pro day workout. But the Raiders didn’t sign him after drafting Tyler Wilson in the fourth round of the draft, leaving Young in purgatory (though he did end up graduating from college in May).
Still, Young kept himself in shape after not playing at all in 2012.
“That's my craft, that's all I do in the offseason," Young said in March. "When it's time for me to get ready for the season, I'm so focused on the plays, the preparation, you don't want to be thinking about footwork when you get with the team.”
Young, though, did not impress in his last NFL job. The Bills released him three months after signing him following his 12-for-26, 103-yard, two-interception performance in his final preseason game with Buffalo.
“I think he had (the playbook) down with his thought processes, but we just didn't see the consistency,” said then-Bills coach Chan Gailey.
