Vince is little more than clipboard holding material at this point
Former NFL Pro Bowl QB Vince Young’s debt woes continue to mount as, according to KHOU11 Houston, Harris County Constables inventoried his Houston home on Wednesday to tally up his possessions in pursuit of a $1.7M judgment against him. The former Heisman trophy runner-up took out the ill-advised loan from Pro Player Funding during the 2011 lockout. He is a free agent now with little hope of signing a deal worth much more than a camp invite and chance to compete for 3rd team. His star has fallen since he was the #3 overall draft pick in 2006, followed by two Pro Bowl appearances for the Tennessee Titans.
Young and his attorney, Trey Doleza, have appealed the judgment against him on relatively shaky grounds of being misled by a financial adviser and claiming he didn’t know what he was signing.
Dolezal called the raid “gorilla tactics.” Sean Bellew, attorney for Pro Player Funding, said they were well within their rights after spending a year chasing the loan money.
Young made somewhere in the $30M range in career salary earnings and up to $30M in endorsements over his 6-year career. The former Longhorn superstar has thinks he might have a second NFL life with the success of rushing quarterbacks like Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III, but so far has had few takers.
