It’s been a tough two years for Vince Young since his unreal rookie season, and now he might have more bad news coming his way, as today’s Nashville City Paper reports that he may have a pay cut coming his way.
Here’s the report from today’s edition:
Titans QB Vince Young’s career has come to the proverbial fork in the road, and the most urgent part of the equation might be that, as the second-string quarterback now, he would only get a chance in the regular season at redemption if something happened to Kerry Collins.
That means Young must use the OTAs (organized team activities), mini-camps, training camp and preseason games to show the Titans that he “gets it” when it comes to a team-first, professional approach that is centered around hard work and improvement. And he probably has only this season to show it.
That’s because his salary cap hit zooms to around $14 million next season, meaning he would likely have to rework his deal (a pay cut) or somehow regain full control as the starter (to earn an extension) in order not to risk being let go before the 2010 season.
