Vince Young plans to retire from the NFL. H
“It’s definitely official I think in my book,” Young said. “Unless we get a great opportunity, something guaranteed other than that I’ve started moving forward in some things. I love the NFL, will love the game always but I’m kind of moving forward and moving on right now.”
Young said he'll likely work for the University of Texas.
He was recently cut by the Cleveland Browns.
He hasn't played in a regular-season game since 2011 with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Young went to one Pro Bowl with the Tennessee Titans before being released by them after clashing with coach Jeff Fisher.
“I had my ups and downs," Young said. "I made the mistake of getting in to it with my coach and that kind of hurt me a whole lot. When you go to different teams, they already have a bad perception of you. When that’s out there, there’s nothing you can do."
Young was cut in training camp by the Buffalo Bills in 2012 and the Green Bay Packers in 2013.
A former Titans first-round draft pick who made the Pro Bowl in 2006 and 2009, Young was the Associated Press NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2006 after playing collegiately at the University of Texas.
Young, 30, has passed for 8,964 career yards, 46 touchdowns and 51 interceptions.
Young resolved a bankruptcy case earlier this year.
