Does he. Does he not.
That’s the question today surrounding Titans QB Vince Young, who came out last Friday on a Baltimore TV station and said that if he is not the starter in the 09 season for Tennessee, he wants to be traded to somewhere where he would be the starter (good luck with that!).
Now, trying to do damage control, the agent for Young says the quarterback does not want the Titans to trade him, basically downplaying the comments Young made. Major Adams said that Young’s intends to remain in Tennessee and battle Kerry Collins for the starting QB spot.
“Vince’s desire has always been to compete for the starting quarterback job in Tennessee,” Adams said late Tuesday night. “Even before they drafted him, they asked him if he thought he could compete for the starting role, and he said yes. He has always been a starter and that is his mindset.”
Young’s comments seem to greatly differ from what his agent is saying, as it seemed pretty cut and dry that he wanted out if he was going to again serve as Collins’ backup.
“Definitely I want to be in there playing ball and picking up where I left off, winning games and having a good time with my teammates and fans,” Young told the station. “But at the same time if them guys don’t want me in there, it’s time for me to make a career change for myself.
“The fact is I’m ready to play ball, and if they’re not ready for me to play ball, somebody is.”
Titans coach Jeff Fisher says he doesn’t have an issue with Young’s comments. He’s also said in the past that Young is still the starter for the future in Tennessee, that is if he’s still with the team when that time comes.
