BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP/wgrz) - Free agent quarterback Vince Young worked out with the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday.
Young was not made avaialble to the media, but the team's website announced that current receivers receivers David Nelson, Donald Jones, Naaman Roosevelt and Marcus Easley all participated in the workout.
Nelson spoke at an event to honor "Touchdown for Teachers" grand prize winner Anthony Agnello of Orchard Park High School on Wednesday afternoon.
He would not comment on the workout but was asked about what Young can add as a quarterback. "I did grow up in Texas so I watched a lot of his games at Texas," said Nelson. "He's a dynamic quarterback. He brings something different to the table then what we have with his legs and a different style of play. I don't know what the coaching staff wants to do with him if they do sign him."
Young has had an up-and-down career since being selected third overall by Tennessee in the 2006 NFL draft.
After five years with the Titans, he struggled in his one season with Philadelphia. As a backup, he finished with four touchdowns, nine interceptions and was sacked eight times in six games, including three starts.
"In my opinion he can't play and he wanted to be a starter. It's obvious that nobody wants him as a starter so now he is struggling to find a backup job," said Howard Eskin of WIP radio in Philadelphia.
Eskin, who covers the Eagles, said that Young was good in the locker room, but struggled on the field.
The Bills have a starter in place in Ryan Fitzpatrick. Young presents a dual threat as a runner and passer, and would be regarded as a good fit in coach Chan Gailey's wildcat formations.
The Buffalo News first reported on its website Tuesday that Youngwas scheduled to work out Wednesday. The Bills confirmed the workout to 2-On-Your-Side.
