Vince Young hires agent in hopes of reviving playing career

Young now works with his alma mater, the University of Texas, as a development officer.

Chosen as the third-overall pick in the 2006 draft by Tennessee, Young had his moments under center for the Titans. Over the course of his first two seasons, he started a combined 28 games and posted over 4,500 passing yards with 21 touchdowns through the air and 10 more on the ground. The journeyman quarterback has a "dream of playing more football", according to his new agent Leigh Steinberg.

The former Texas star was unable to make a regular season roster in each of his final three seasons in the league, so there's no reason to think he'll find work now at age 33. Former Longhorns offensive lineman Kennedy Estelle was a starting offensive lineman for the Roughriders last season. If Young is to play in the CFL, the Riders have his exclusive rights. He hasn't played in a regular-season National Football League game since 2011 when he was with Philadelphia.

Vince Young still believes he has something left to offer as a professional athlete. As a prep, he was named the state 5A Player of the Year in 2001.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported in January Young has some interest from the Spring League.

Young has been working at the University of Texas and with the Longhorn Network.
