Does Vince Young fit in the AFC West?

The Tennessee Titans announced quarterback Vince Young will not be with the team in 2011.

Let’s take a look if he fits anywhere in the AFC West.


Depending on who is the new head coach, Young could possibly fit as a backup. It looks like Tim Tebow will be the starter and Kyle Orton will be traded. I could see the Titans making a run at Orton. So, with a backup job likely available, there could be interest in Young. He is a runner like Tebow, so it could be a system fit.

Kansas City

I think the Chiefs will move away from Brodie Croyle as backup, so there might be an opening. But I don’t see Young being a fit in this system.


You always have to wonder about Oakland. Al Davis likes giving talented players a second chance. Oakland is hardly set at quarterback but Jason Campbell is probably a more stable fit for the immediate future than Young. Still, I wouldn’t be shocked if Young is wearing the Silver and Black in 2011.

San Diego

Backup Billy Volek may try to leave to pursue a starter’s job, so there may be an opening. But I don’t see the Chargers pursuing Young.
