The Cleveland Browns have confirmed they are trying out former Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Vince Young, per multiple reports. 

Along with Young, the Browns are also going to size up another quarterback, Tyler Thigpen, per Kevin Jones of the Browns' official website

"The Cleveland Browns have brought in quarterbacks Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen for a tryout, according to general manager Ray Farmer. The quarterbacks will participate in pre-draft voluntary minicamp begins on Tuesday. 

"Young, 30, last took a regular-season snap in 2011 with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was a member of the Green Bay Packers in the 2013 offseason program and filled the same duty with the Buffalo Bills in 2012. In his career, Young has 46 touchdowns and 51 interceptions. 

"He was a Pro Bowler with the Tennessee Titans in 2006 and 2009. 

"'He's been productive,' said Farmer. He's had success in the National Football League. We wanted to take the opportunity to get a chance to see where he was. Minicamp seemed to be the appropriate time to (bring) in.'

"Thigpen, 30, is entering his seventh season from Coastal Carolina and has proven stints with the Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills. Thigpen started most of the 2008 season with the Chiefs, tossing 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. 

"Farmer did hint that both quarterbacks have a skill that the Browns are looking for in a quarterback: mobility.

"'I think it's a piece of the puzzle,' said Farmer about having a quarterback who can scramble. 'I wouldn't say that it's the top piece. They both are mobile, very good athletes. They both have had relative success.'

"'I think (offensive coordinator) Kyle (Shanahan) would say he likes a quarterback that's mobile. The offense is definitely going to require the quarterback to do different things -- move, play outside the pocket to some degree,' said Farmer."

The Northeast Ohio Media Group's Mary Kay Cabot also confirms Young earned a tryout with the Browns. She spoke with Farmer, who said the timing has come at the appropriate time.  

"Our interest in Vince is that he's been productive and he's had success in the National Football League. We wanted to take the opportunity to see where he was. 

"We've been kind of following him through the offseason and he had been doing some things that kind of caught our eye and made us kind of take note and we wanted to see what that looked like in his own time frame. 

"The opportunity was right and minicamp seemed to be the appropriate time." 

Cabot also reveals Young will work for his alma mater, the University of Texas, should he not take the field again. Young made this known at a Touchdown Club of Houston luncheon on April 23. 

"(I'd be) just letting you know hwat (UT) has going on, especially helping kids get scholarships and recognizing things like that. Whatever it is, I just want to support the university. 

"If it doesn't work out you still had a great shot at it, still was a Pro Bowler, playoff guy and still got a winning percentage and things like that. 

"If it doesn't work out it's in God's hands. I just stay strong and continue to live my life and enjoy my life, especially taking care of my little ones."

In a separate development, Cabot's colleague at The Northeast Ohio Media Group, Mary Kilpatrick, reports on April 28 that former Browns quarterback and television commentator Bernie Kosar "pleaded no contest to reckless operation of a vehicle" on Monday. 

Kosar, who drove 74 mph in a construction zone, was arrested on Sept. 29 and charged with OVI and speeding. Those charges were eventually dismissed. 

His attorney, George Simon, told Kilpatrick the charge of reckless operation of a vehicle has nothing to do with alcohol. 

"Kosar sentenced to 10 days in jail, through he will not serve any time, court records show," per Kilpatrick.
