When the St. Louis Rams went bargain shopping for a new quarterback in the wake of Sam Bradford's season-ending knee injury, they ended up with the less than inspired selections of Brady Quinn and Austin Davis.
Vince Young, owner of a career 31-19 record as a starting quarterback, can't figure out why his phone never rang.
"Me and my wife and all my peers and fans, we're all trying to figure this stuff out. I don't have the slightest idea," Young told SiriusXM NFL Radio's Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt on Wednesday. "It's like a huge question mark over my head every day I wake up in the morning to take care of my responsibilities and know I should be playing. To not have one of those calls, it's tough."
He's not viewed as a steadying force who will toe the line and mentor young quarterbacks. His best chance at a return might be a season-ending injury to a desperate contender with no capable backup on the roster.
