Ex-QB Young responds to financial reports

Publish date:

Free agent quarterback Vince Young took to Twitter Wednesday to address reports that he was in financial dire straits.

An Associated Press report on Tuesday depicted Young's situation as one where he was trying to deal with arguing lawyers and mounting debt.

Young responded a day later.

"It's a shame to see people revel in and rally around negativity in the media but I guess it's to be expected," Young tweeted. "Yes, I need a job, who doesn't"

On his legal troubles, Young wrote: "We are working to rectify some unfortunate finical losses, which stemmed from betrayal by those I trusted most."

"But these rumors are disheartening & just untrue. I'll keep pushing through regardless. God Bless. Trill"

Young, 29, earned $25.7 million in guaranteed money from his rookie contract alone. He signed with the Buffalo Bills, but was released in August.
