Free agent quarterback Vince Young viewed the Houston Texans’ 38-13 Sunday loss to the St. Louis Rams as an opportunity to campaign for a new job, telling his thousands of Twitter followers that he’s in prime physical shape and ready to perform.
The H-Town native, who hasn’t played in a regular season game since 2011, led the Texas Longhorns to the national championship in 2006.
If you have ever lived in fear of having your mattress set repossessed by Rooms To Go you can respect the hustle. Earlier this year, Young was ordered by a judge to auction off most of what’s left of his possessions in order to pay off an outstanding debt on a high-interest loan he took out during the 2011 NFL lockout.
You probably don’t need Suze Orman to tell you that life is everything but one endless Cash Money music video circa 2001, and that’s just one of the many reasons why we sit at the same lunch table.
“I would literally be crying on my first interview if that happens,” Young said in a phone interview about his tweets with Fox Sports. “People will be like, ‘Why are you crying?’ Because that would be a dream come true to play at home in front of my family and friends in the city I grew up in. They’ve been watching me since high school.”
Let them know VY is in shape and ready to go! I always loved my birth place and everyone who lives in it IM READY

“I definitely wouldn’t let them down. I’d put my blood, sweat and tears into getting that Super Bowl. That’s something I would love to do, definitely for my hometown.”
After throwing a pick-six in each of the previous four games, Houston quarterback Matt Schaub left due to an ankle injury as he team struggled on the field.
