Don't Expect Vince Young To Land With Minnesota Vikings

The Tennessee Titans will attempt to trade QB Vince Young and, if that's not possible, they will release him. There are several teams in need of a quarterback so, if Young is going to be a starter again, he has just a few options.

One of those teams would be the Minnesota Vikings, who drafted QB Christian Ponder with the 12th overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft. If they were looking for a veteran to start the season, or maybe a backup to whoever their starter is, perhaps they'd look at Young.

Or not.

The Vikings haven't had any internal discussions about acquiring Young according to Steve Wyche of NFL.com. The speculation with Minnesota started when Young's former quarterbacks coach took a jon with the Vikings. But really it's no surprise as the only other team we've really heard connected to Young is the Washington Redskins and that's a big rumor at this point.

The problem with acquiring Young is that he wants to start and many teams picked up quarterbacks in the draft. Judging by his history, Vince Young isn't the guy that needs to be mentoring young draft picks so there just aren't a lot of options out there.
