Vince Young Announces Retirement

Vince Young Announces Retirement

Jay Drowns/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- He has not played since 2011, but Vince Young announced his retirement from the NFL on Saturday. Young played parts of six seasons with the Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles.

Young was the third overall pick in 2006 by the Titans and was named Rookie of the Year, starting immediately. The former Texas Longhorn was also selected to the Pro Bowl in both 2006 and 2009. The 31-year-old threw for 8,964 yards and 46 touchdowns during his career.

After not playing in 2013, Young was cut by the Green Bay Packers and was later signed by the Cleveland Browns May 1. Cleveland also signed Tyler Thigpen that day before releasing Young after they drafted Johnny Manziel. 

Althought he signed a rookie contract that guaranteed him just under $27 million, Young suffered from financial issues his entire career and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy earlier this year.
