Young, who was released by the Buffalo Bills last August, is planning to work out for scouts at the University of Texas on March 26. He is confident he can be an asset for a club, and he is hoping and praying that a team gives him another chance.
During an interview with NFL Network’s “NFL AM” Wednesday, Young talked about his desire to improve his legacy. Now 29 and married with children, Young says he has grown and matured. He even says he sent a letter of apology to his former coach with the Tennessee Titans, Jeff Fisher, who is now with the St. Louis Rams.
“I definitely wanted to apologize for the things that I did, letting him know about the frustration, a lot of different things that was going on in my life at the time,” Young said of his letter to Fisher. “And I wanted him to know that I really did appreciate him trying to make me become one of those type of leaders on the team, a successful quarterback.
“At the time, being immature and not paying attention and not listening and taking my frustrations out on a lot of people wasn’t the right thing to do. Just knowing that, hopefully he can read my letter and forgive me for that.”
Young is hoping that Fisher will be able to put in a good word for him with teams around the league. He says he would be willing to take a backup job and that he believes he would be a good leader and mentor for younger players.Google+
