(NEW YORK) — In another attempt to resurrect his once promising career, quarterback Vince Young has signed a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills worth $2 million. He will serve as the backup quarterback to Ryan Fitzpatrick
The 28-year old Young spent last season with the Philadelphia Eagles. He appeared in six games and made three starts with the team. The results were mixed at best, he completed 57.9 percent of his passes, had a quarterback rating of 60.8, and threw nine interceptions compared to just four touchdowns.
“I am looking forward to playing with the guys and helping where I am needed,” Young said in a released statement. “I have always respected the Bills organization and I am looking forward to being a part of the team.”
Young was drafted third overall by the Tennessee Titans in 2006 and won the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year Award, but after inconsistent play and multiple benchings, he was let go by the team after the 2010 season.
No word yet if Young has declared the 2012 Bills as the dream team.
