Vince Young announced his retirement today, but it wasn’t voluntarily, he believes the beginning of the end was his beef with his former coach Jeff Fisher.
No one will know the whole story, but Young’s reputation never has been the same.
“I had my ups and downs. 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,” he said.
“That’s what everyone else focuses on, I don’t focus on that. It wasn’t too bad,” Young said of his struggles in the NFL . “I’m very happy and thankful for living the dream I had as a kid.”
Vince Young had so much potential, but sadly for whatever the reason it never all came together.
