Vince Young Hasn't Ruled Out Joining The Buffalo Bills

Free agent quarterback Vince Young worked out for the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, May 3 and subsequently left without a deal. Per Young's agent, however - who communicated with WKBW's Jeff Russo on Thursday - it's not yet time to write off Young to the Bills as a possibility, despite the workout taking place more than a week ago.

Young's agent tells Russo that "Buffalo is still an option," per Russo's report.

The former No. 3 overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft (selected just two spots after defensive end Mario Williams) is coming off of a one-year stint as the backup quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, where he appeared in six games, made three starts, and sported a 1-2 record with four touchdowns and nine interceptions. The six-year veteran spent his first five seasons with the Tennessee Titans, where he compiled a 30-17 record as a starter and made two Pro Bowl appearances. A rocky relationship with then-head coach Jeff Fisher brought an end to his Titans career.

The Bills are looking to add competition at the backup quarterback position for incumbent Tyler Thigpen, and see Young - who will turn 29 in a week - in that light. Young, however, may be holding out hope that he can get a starting job somewhere; if that's his hope, he may have to wait quite a while. Ryan Fitzpatrick is entrenched as the Bills' starting quarterback.
