GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Vince Young had just finished his post-practice shower when he entered the Green Bay Packers locker room and saw a throng of reporters waiting at his locker.

Time and a disappointing career haven't taken away from Ted Thompson's belief in Vince Young's promise. "I'm married now, a grown man, 30 years old," Young said. "I've definitely been through the highs and the lows and different things like that."
