Default Vince Young files bankruptcy

Did he graduate from UT? Not saying this matters shouldn't be surprised how many athletes go broke

Sad story - before there was Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick there was Vince Young

Hope he did not burn his bridges with Texas boosters

Sad story - before there were Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick there was Vince Young - thought he was going to be a good pro

Yeah, his career came a few years too soon.

Of course, there were talks of him being a head case early on, but...

Also, this should serve as a BIG warning sign to guys like Kaep.

If he did, he was more than likely greased through. From my understanding, the guy is borderline illiterate.

Yep - his Wonderlic score was epic

The NFL average is 21. The public average is 24. Vince Young, the most popular failed Wonderlic test-taker in NFL history, scored a six.
