I’m not sure Vince Young will ever see an NFL field again, but he seems to be trying to get his personal matters in order.
The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Young has settled his lawsuit against his former financial adviser and former agent, eliminating the need for trial.
The settlement was reached late Friday in Young’s suit against Ronnie Peoples and Peoples Financial Services, based in Raleigh, N.C., and against Major Adams II, Young’s former agent.
Young’s attorney, Trey Dolezal of Austin, said terms of the settlement were confidential but added, “Vince is ecstatic to have this out of the way so he can pursue his football career.”
Peoples’ attorney, David Chaumette of Sugar Land, was not immediately available for comment.
Young of course accused Peoples and Adams of defrauding him and of conspiring with Pro Player Funding, a New York-based company, to obtain a $1.8 million loan in Young’s name during the 2011 NFL lockout.
