Bills to host QB Vince Young

Buffalo (BuffaloBills.com) At the close of the NFL draft, Bills GM Buddy Nix was asked why the team did not draft a quarterback knowing Nix had indicated he would if the right one were available at the right time. Buffalo’s personnel boss said the right one wasn’t there when they were on the clock. He also stated that they would get one in free agency. Buffalobills.com has learned that one veteran free agent will be at One Bills Drive Wednesday for a workout in quarterback Vince Young.



Young spent last season with the Philadelphia Eagles, appearing in six games making three starts. He completed just under 58 percent of his passes with four touchdowns and nine interceptions with a passer rating of 60.8.



The former number three overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft, Young is being viewed strictly as a potential backup quarterback option for the Bills.



Young, who turns 29 later this month, is 31-19 in his career as a starting quarterback with a career passer rating of 74.4, 46 touchdowns and 51 interceptions. He also has 12 rushing touchdowns in his six NFL seasons.



Buffalo currently has three quarterbacks on the roster in Ryan Fitzpatrick, Brad Smith and Tyler Thigpen. They agreed to terms with undrafted rookie Aaron Corp on Monday, the former University of Richmond signal caller.
