It appears free agent quarterback Vince Young has finally found a team. The Buffalo Bills today announced they have agreed to terms with Young, with ESPN's Chris Mortensen adding that it's a one-year, $2 million contract. The deal has another $1 million in incentives.
Young will serve as a backup quarterback behind Ryan Fitzpatrick next year, competing with former Miami Dolphins quarterback Tyler Thigpen for the second position. Young has started 50 games in his career, with the first five years being spent with the Tennessee Titans and alst year with the Philadelphia eagles. He has thrown for 8,964 yards, with a 46-51 touchdown-to-interceptions ration, and a passer rating of 74.4.
Our friend Brian Galliford over at Buffalo Rumblings, also points out that, with the signing of Young, the Bills have signed the first overall pick of the 2006 draft (defensive end Mario Williams) and the third overall pick from that draft (Young) this offseason. The second pick in that draft? Miami running back Reggie Bush.
