Vince Young Reportedly Out Of Money

He may have been one of the greatest college football players of his era, but former Texas Longhorns quarterback Vince Young, at just 29 years old, is reportedly out of money according to the Houston Chronicle.

Six years after being selected with the No. 3 overall pick and signing a rookie contract that guaranteed him a whopping $26 million, Young is currently one of many Americans desperate for work after flushing virtually all of his pro earnings down the drain according to his own attorney, Trey Dolezal.

"I would just say that Vince needs a job," Dolezal said when asked of his clients' finances.

Dolezal believes Young's downfall took place because he was simply too young and immature for stardom at the time. "He was just very young, and allowing these people to have too much control over his life and his name," Dolezal said.

While Young and Dolezal are each frantically attempting to point some of the blame at former agent Major Adams and North Carolina financial planner Ronnie Peoples for allegedly swindling $5.5 million, it's almost jaw-dropping to imagine how quickly the former Longhorns standout has fallen from such unbelievable heights in just six years time.
