Green Bay to workout Vince Young

Vince Young needs a paycheck, and the Green Bay Packers might be a team willing to give it to him. Facing serious financial issues, Young cannot be picky about the team he gets a job with.

The Buffalo Bills surprised many when they selected EJ Manuel in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
