Vince Young has fallen on hard times

  • Text size: + -

DALLAS (AP) _ Six years after entering the NFL as the third player taken in the draft, Vince Young finds himself without a team and with only a fraction of the money he received from a contract that guaranteed him $26 million. The question is, where did it all go?

The quarterback who led Texas to a Rose Bowl victory in 2006 is back in Houston after being cut by the Buffalo Bills. He's also in a tenuous financial condition as a caustic series of legal actions focus on what happened to his money.

Some portray Young as an out-of-control spender who put himself deeply in the hole. Others describe him as a victim of inexperienced advisers.

Young's attorney says of his client just "needs a job.''
