A few weeks ago it was reported that the Minnesota Vikings were the most likely team to take a chance on Vince Young for the 2011 season.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen offers a difference of opinion in regards to the idea. When asked why he doesn’t see the Vikings as possibility for VY Mortensen said that “just the word coming out of the Vikings front office. Nothing decided. I believe there’s more background work they’ll want to do and I’m not sure he’s a fit for what new OC Bill Musgrave wants to install but I will reiterate that it’s premature.”
Mortensen’s point about Vince Young not fitting into the Vikings offensive direction hasn’t gotten a lot of coverage up until now. If Minnesota chooses to go in a different direction in regards to the quarterback position, it would the Buffalo Bills as the next best option for Young. Some have suggested that Bills head coach Chan Gailey may be interested in bringing Young to help the teams quarterback depth but that has yet to be confirmed by credible sources.
Once again, the Titans intent to trade Young but it still appears to be an overly optimistic idea considering Young’s large 2011 salary. Most likely scenario is that Tennessee cuts him and takes the cap hit which will then allow him to pursue the starting quarterback job that he intends on getting.
