Vince Young Inks Deal With Browns

The Cleveland Browns announced on Thursday that they will be signing both quarterbacks that they brought in for a 3-day mini-camp.  Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen both will receive a one year contract to play for the Browns in 2014.
Young hasn't played in the NFL since 2011 when he was a back-up with the Philadelphia Eagles.  He was brought in by the Green Bay Packers last year to try out for the team but was eventually cut prior to the start of the season.

The Browns were looking to add some solid back-ups at the quarterback position prior to the start of the season.  Brian Hoyer and Alex Tanney were the only two quarterbacks listed on the roster prior to signing the two veterans. 

Young made 50 starts from 2006 to 2011 while playing for the Tennessee Titans, according to ESPN.  He was 31-19 as a starter and had 46 touchdowns to 51 interceptions with a 57.9 completion percentage.  He was selected to the Pro Bowl twice during his time in Tennessee during the 2006 and 2009 seasons.

Kyle Shanahan is the new offensive cordinator for the Browns this year.  He signed a contract after the Washington Redskins replaced the coaching staff after the 2013 season.  Young has the ability to be a mobile quarterback that can make plays with his feet.  This can work well with Shanahan's offensive style read option that he brought to Washington -- and helped propel the team to the playoffs under then rookie starter RG III.

Young will still have to compete for a spot on the roster that now has four quarterbacks currently on it.  With the NFL Draft just a few days away -- the Browns have the fourth overall pick in the draft and could end up getting Johnny Manziel, or another quarterback they deem as a franchise player.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
