Vince Young Works Out For Buffalo Bills, Leaves Without Deal

Free agent quarterback Vince Young worked out for the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday, but left Orchard Park after meeting with the team's coaching staff without a deal in place.

Bills wide receiver David Nelson, one of four receivers on the team that ran routes for Young during his workout, described Young as "in shape," and said that he "looked good" during the throwing session.

Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports that no announcement is imminent between the Bills and the No. 3 overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. It's possible that Young - who purportedly was not re-signed by Philadelphia because head coach Andy Reid believed him capable of starting - is looking for a better situation than the backup job in Buffalo, as the Bills are clearly committed to Ryan Fitzpatrick as the starter.

The Bills were likely looking at Young as potential competition to veteran backup Tyler Thigpen, who attempted just eight pass in limited duty in his first year with Buffalo a year ago. Thigpen, who worked with Bills head coach Chan Gailey while the two were with Kansas City, has two years remaining on his current deal.

Buffalo also agreed to terms with undrafted free agent quarterback Aaron Corp, who played for a year at Richmond after transferring from USC following an injury.
