CANTON, Ohio (AP) – The Browns have released veteran quarterback Vince Young a few days after drafting Johnny Manziel.
Browns owner Jimmy Haslam announced the move with Young on Monday during a speech at a Pro Football Hall of Fame luncheon. Young’s release follows the club’s selection of Manziel, Texas A&M’s dynamic and polarizing quarterback in the first round of the NFL Draft.
The team signed Young and quarterback Tyler Thigpen on May 1. Young was thrilled to be getting a chance to revive his career, but will now have to try to do it elsewhere.
Young hasn’t played in an NFL regular-season NFL game since 2011. The 30-year-old has a 31-19 career record.
A former Heisman Trophy winner, Young spent five seasons with Tennessee. He started three games for the Eagles in 2011. He spent part of the past two preseasons with Buffalo and Green Bay.
