So get this: There’s a man actively trying to convince people he’s Eagles backup QB Vince Young. Let that sink in for a moment.
Despite speculation to the contrary, quarterback Vince Young and receiver Roy Williams will not be placed on waivers before joining their new teams.
NFL.com senior analyst Pat Kirwan agrees that the Buffalo Bills make sense as a suitor for Vince Young, but he he sees a better fit for the QB playing behind Michael Vick in Philadelphia.
At some point soon (at least we think), Vince Young will become an unrestricted free agent. Analyst Bucky Brooks views the Bills under the direction of coach Chain Gailey as potentially the best fit for Young.
Even if he is under contract, we know that Vince Young isn’t a part of the plans for Mike Munchak and the Titans.
It’s safe to say former Titans coach Jeff Fisher knows Vince Young — the player and the person — as well as anyone, mentoring the former No. 3 overall pick during all five of his seasons in Tennessee.

We’ve become accustomed to blockbuster deals for quarterbacks, so how about this one?
Vince Young has proven he can play quarterback in the NFL. He’s proven he can win in certain situations. But the real issue concerning Young’s future is that he hasn’t proven he can be a long-term leader of a franchise.
The news that the Vikings have hired Craig Johnson to coach their quarterbacks is sure to be followed by plenty of speculation of just who he will coach in 2011.
The Titans decided on Wednesday they’re a better team without QB Vince Young. There’s no better time than the present to speculate where he could end up in 2011.
Vince Young’s reputation of lacking leadership, maturity and work ethic often played out in a public forum, and what we saw was likely only the tip of the iceberg. It finally caught up with him.
