Vince Young had trouble being "the man" in Tennessee. He named his Eagles club the "Dream Team" which was hardly the case. Now he has landed in Buffalo. Can he be a factor again, or are his best days behind him?
have agreed to terms with free-agent quarterback
, the team announced Friday.
The deal is for one year, according to the Buffalo News. ESPN.com reported the deal is worth $2 million with $1 million more in incentives.
"We think adding Vince to our roster will create more competition for the backup quarterback position," said Bills General Manager Buddy Nix. "He brings with him some unique physical abilities that most are aware of and that will make the competition interesting. It's all about improving our team."
Young, who worked out with the Bills earlier this month, played last season with the
as a backup to
. Young threw for 866 yards, four touchdowns and nine interceptions in six games.
"I watched him play earlier in his career and he had done some great things," Bills coach Chan Gailey said. "He thought that was a great guy for us to bring in because we've talked all along of wanting to continually try to bring in guys that can compete for jobs. And he can compete for a job. I'm looking forward to working with him."
The two-time Pro Bowl honoree had his best seasons with the

"We tend to fit the offense around what people do. We don't make people fit in to our offense," Gailey said. "If he ends up, if we get an injury to Fitz (
) and he ends up playing we'll tailor some things to do what he does using his movement skills."
However, his career has been checkered, including being demoted to backup in 2008 and his release by the Titans in 2011.
