Vince Young is in financial purgatory right now, and trying to get his NFL career back on track.  Young will start by working out at the University of Texas Pro Day. Yesterday during a visit to NFL AM, Young did his best to try to rehabilitate his reputation according to Pro Football Talk.   Young admitted he made some mistakes, but also stated that off the field, “he was a victim, and taken advantage of by other people.” “I really want teams and organizations to know that I was young at a time and I put my trust in a lot of people, and I was getting taken advantage of,” Young said. “Basically, I’m the victim of the situation. So I’ve just got to clean up that mess, just to let teams know I’m a little bit more mature than I used to be, I’ve grown a whole lot, and I just want teams to understand that you’re getting a little bit more mature quarterback that understands the professionalism of the game.” Young admitted to making mistakes during his tenure with the Titans, but truly feels his off the field issues are why he’s unemployed, and not his body of work as a quarterback. “I don’t really feel like it was my game, I just feel like it was some off-the-field issues, with some of the things that, as I was cleaning up a lot of the mess outside the field, I really feel like teams don’t want their quarterback to be in that position, of being distracted,” Young said. “It was nothing about my game, it’s just those things have to be cleared up before I get that opportunity.” I think a team may give him a shot as a backup, but if he blows this chance, his career is over.
