Denise White of Vince Young’s publicity firm EAG made a tweet today saying “How about @VinceYoung to the Dolphins? I hear rumblings? Would he be a good fit for them??”. Vince Young responded with a re-tweet, adding “or the 49ers“.
We knew Manning signing would set off a chain of events with quarterbacks, as it is crucial for them to get with their teams and learn their respective offense. The next one to sign could be Vince Young, if it seems like he’s only going to get back-up offers. At that juncture, it comes down to which place Vince wants to go to and perhaps where he believes he’ll have the best opportunity to challenge the starter.
The fact that Young is interested in the 49ers implies to me that he still wants to start, as he would be the most start-ready QB on the roster. The Eagles don’t want him back, and there is mutual interest there between Philly and David Garrard.
As for the Dolphins, they’ve lost out on Manning and Flynn and traded their best wide receiver since Mark Clayton. I don’t believe Young would help subdue the negative backlash in South Beach right now. The younger Ryan Tannehill – who hasn’t had the history of poor play Vince Young has – might.
