Vince Young sues former agent, advisor
Buffalo Bills quarterback Vince Young has filed a lawsuit against his former agent and financial advisor, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Young has sued Major Adams II, who negotiated his rookie contract with the Tennessee Titans, and Ronnie Peoples, his financial advisor and owner of Peoples Financial Services.
Young signed a six-year, $58 million contract with the Titans, but by the time Tennessee had released him after the 2010 season, he had switched to Tom Condon and CAA. Young chose Adams, a family friend, as his agent over more experienced representatives when he left the University of Texas after leading the Longhorns to the national championship in 2005.
Young's lawsuit, filed by attorney Trey Dolezal, alleges that a substantial amount of money from the contract Young signed is missing and legal action was necessary to determine “what happened to a large sum of money that there’s no accounting for.”
“There has been at least some evidence that there has been some fraud and some forgeries using [Young’s] name over the last several years that we believe that Major Adams and Ron Peoples are responsible for,” Dolezal said. “We have no idea how much money is missing.”
