Bills GM Buddy Nix is through talking about Vince Young
After trading an undisclosed draft pick to the Seattle Seahawks this weekend for Tarvaris Jackson, the Buffalo Bills decided to cut former first round pick Vince Young. Young’s disappointing pre-season allowed the Bills to cut him from the roster. While the team initially thought Young would be their back up quarterback, it looks as though Jackson will now be the number two in Buffalo.
Today, Buddy Nix, the Buffalo Bills GM said he no longer wants to talk about the former first-rounder any longer.
“I don’t want to get into what he can do and can’t do,” Nix said of Young, via Tim Graham of the Buffalo News. “It just didn’t work out.
“Vince did everything that he could. He worked hard at it. He did everything that we asked him to do. It just didn’t work. So we’re going another route.”
When pressed as to why it didn’t work, Nix said: “Why do we keep talking about Vince’s problems? Vince is gone.”
But his answer to questions about why Jackson was brought in speaks volumes about what they thought of Young.
“We spent a lot of money in the offseason,” Nix said. “We put a lot of money in this football team, and we think we’ve got good players and a chance to be competitive.
“I wouldn’t want one guy to get hurt and couldn’t play and everybody else be helpless to get it done. So it’s a protection.”
