Brooks: Bills are ideal landing spot for Vince Young

At some point soon (at least we think), Vince Young will become an unrestricted free agent. But the buzz over where Young will land has taken a backseat to that on where several of the other quarterbacks available in free agency (Matt Hasselbeck, Marc Bulger) or via a trade (Kevin Kolb, Kyle Orton, Carson Palmer, Donovan McNabb) are destined to go.

Despite Young’s 30-17 career record as a starter, questions about his work ethic, commitment and leadership likely means he takes a veteran-minimum contract and competes for a starting job. Analyst Bucky Brooks has some ideas in mind as to the offensive schemes which best fit Young, and said during a recent live chat he leans toward the Bills as the best fit.

“Young would be a great fit for a team that features a strong running game and a vertical aerial attack,” Brooks noted. “From a schematic standpoint, he would certainly fit in Miami, Oakland, Buffalo and possibly Washington. If I had to choose the ideal place, I would lean towards Buffalo due to the success Chan Gailey has enjoyed with athletic quarterbacks.”

As Brooks notes, Gailey has a history working with mobile quarterbacks, most notably Kordell Stewart.
