Found May 02, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
Earlier this offseason, it was reported that the Oakland Raiders were targeting free agent quarterback Vince Young. However, since adding quarterback Tyler Wilson in the fourth round of last weekend's NFL Draft, the Raiders are no longer interested in Young, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday on "NFL Total Access" that the Raiders no longer have interest in Young after using their fourth-round pick on Tyler Wilson during the 2013 NFL Draft last weekend. Young worked out for the Raiders last month, and by all accounts it was a positive showing for the veteran. He earned the workout with Oakland after his impressive performance at the University of Texas pro day. It's hard to believe Young still isn't 30, as he's been around seemingly forever. He isn't said to be interested in taking his talents to the Canadian Football League, but his rights are currently held by a CFL club, the Montreal Alouettes. The GM of the Alouettes -- Jim Popp -- has said that Young wouldn't even be a starter for the team. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
