The walls of his financial house might be crumbling around him, but Vince Young wants you to know he's doing OK.
The free-agent quarterback found himself in the news Tuesday, after a report by The Associated Press painted his life as a tangle of bickering laywers and big-time debt.
On Wednesday, Young took to Twitter to address his situation.
Itâs a shame to see people revel in and rally around negativity in the media but I guess itâs to be expected. Yes, I need a job, who doesnât- Vince Young (@VinceYoung) September 19, 2012
Yes, I want to be out there playing the game I love and earning a paycheck, who wouldn't?- Vince Young (@VinceYoung) September 19, 2012
We are working to rectify some unfortunate finical losses, which stemmed from betrayal by those I trusted most.- Vince Young (@VinceYoung) September 19, 2012
But these rumors are disheartening & just untrue . Iâll keep pushing through regardless. God Bless. Trill- Vince Young (@VinceYoung) September 19, 2012
Young bemoans the negativity, but his story really is one of fascination for the general public. Young is just 29, and he earned $26 million in guaranteed money from his rookie contract alone. Where did it all go?
Perhaps it's none of our business, but the curiousity level is there.
