Vince Young spends nearly all of $26 million guaranteed contract (and approximately $30 million of endorsement proceeds); claims close associates took advantage of him....! Pleads for understanding because of financial illiteracy (including agreeing to a $1.9 million dollar loan at 20% interest to bide him through the NFL lockout).
Six years after entering the NFL as the third player taken in the draft, Vince Young finds himself without a team and with just a fraction of the money he received from a contract that guaranteed him $26 million.
Vince argues that he just executed signature pages, but never read the agreements or schedules/exhibits attached thereto (which actually happens all the time in the real world). Essentially, he seems to have given signing authority to his uncle and some criminal defense lawyer who used that privilege to spend down assets and amass additional liabilities under Vince Young's name.
Now that Vince is out of the NFL and the collection calls are streaming in, Vince is looking for hail mary passes that will get him out of this mess.
Does anyone have a job for Vince Young??!
