Titans will have to cut Vince Young in a hurry

Jeff Fisher might think that Vince Young can learn from his mistakes, but we all agree that if Young gets that opportunity it will be somewhere other than Tennessee. New Titans coach Mike Munchak made that clear in April and nothing's changed in the three month's since.

Except that the proposed new collective bargaining agreement now makes getting rid of Young a priority for the Titans. The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt provides the details:

"Young’s scheduled to receive a $4.25 million roster bonus on the 10th day of the 2011 league year," Wyatt explains. "Under the old CBA, the Titans would’ve had 10 days to trade him before they had to release him. Howard Balzer of the Sports Xchange obtained a summary of the proposed deal that was reviewed by the NFLPA* this week and it states the due date for all offseason option and roster bonuses will move to the second day of the new league year."

Translation: instead of 10 days, now the Titans have one day to trade or cut Young or they'll owe him a cool $4.25 million. And Wyatt's thinking on what this means for everybody involved is spot on. "No team is going to be willing to trade for Young since everyone knows the Titans plan to release him."

All that's left, it seems, is to figure out where Young will play in 2011.

I like my Fish to pick up Young, DeAngelo Williams and Sims-Walker.  All have expressed interest in Miami.  If this new offense is going to open up more deep passing we could have a chance for some excitement.  I am not sure if it will be good excitement or not.  I am also not sure how well Young and Sims-Walker will handle living in Miami...lots of temptations which they might not need.  On the field, if prepared, they could be a scary offense to go up against.

"No team is going to be willing to trade for Young since everyone knows the Titans plan to release him."  unless they want to make sure they get him, but there probably won't be many buyers on Vince Young atleast as a starter anyways. Mabye all of this will be a wake up call for him, because he has the talent just needs to get his shit together.

IF the Dolphins sign Vince Young and Reggie Bush, it will just confirm that they are more about style than substance. Don Shula must be ashamed of this franchise by now.

Would like to see the Chargers pick up Young as the back up for River's.  With Philip and Norv's help this
would definitely be a win win for both the player and team.  If Young could even come close to how Rivers
prepares/worksout, your could see this kid remain in the league for 10 more years.

I agree with Atkool. My Dolphins will grab him... That should be interesting. Maybe every game he plays will be like his championship game for the Longhorns, HARUMPH.(I doubt it). Although in my humble opinion and admitted lack of watching a lot of American college ball, that championship game he played was the most exciting game I've ever watched.Having said that " Where Have You Gone Dan Marino? Fish Nation Turns Our Lonely Eyes To YOU..OOOH OOH OOH. With apologies to Simon and Garfunkel
