Rich Tandler’s Real Redskins blog scooped an interesting tidbit today, the news of which, as he said, “is enough to raise eyebrows:”
In writing about the Dolphins’ quarterback situation, Omar Kelly of SunSentinal.com turns the discussion to Vince Young, who presumably will be released by the Tennessee Titans soon after the lockout rules allow them to. Kelly dismisses the chances of the Dolphins landing Young by saying, “I’m hearing the Redskins are the front-runner for his services, so it’ll be interesting to see if the Dolphins get in the game.”
Now that the Titans have drafted former University of Washington quarterback Jake Locker, they’ll likely be turning their attention towards acquiring a veteran quarterback who can serve as the “bridge” player and “mentor” to Locker. This, of course, will also likely hasten Young’s departure from Tennessee.
The potential of seeing Young in a burgundy & gold uniform has obviously garnered a mixed reaction – and that’s putting it very nicely – amongst the Redskins faithful. There are big concerns about his ability to handle the adversity around playing quarterback and this league, and even bigger concerns about the idea that he’s been coddled (notably by Titans owner Bud Adams) since he’s arrived in the league.
