Former NFL quarterback Vince Young will take part in the NFL’s veteran combine next month, reports’s Ian Rapoport.

The veteran’s combine will be in Tempe, Ariz. on March 22.

Last summer, Young seemed to close the book on a comeback attempt saying retirement was "definitely official."

"Unless we get a great opportunity, something guaranteed…other than that I’ve started moving forward in some things," he said.

"I love the NFL, will love the game always but I’m kind of moving forward and moving on right now."


Young, 31, has not appeared in an NFL game since 2011 when he started three games with the Philadelphia Eagles.

He was drafted with the third overall pick by the Tennessee Titans in the 2006 NFL draft, compiling a 31-19 record in his five seasons with the team. He was named AP Offensive Rookie of the Year and played in two Pro Bowls.

Young was released by the Titans in July 2011 and then signed with the Eagles.

He played in the preseason for the Buffalo Bills in 2012 and Green Bay Packers in 2013 but was released before the regular season in both times.

In his six seasons in the NFL, Young completed 58 percent of his passes for 8,964 yards with 46 touchdowns and 51 interceptions.
