Vince Young getting tryout with Cleveland Browns


The Cleveland Browns will take a look at Vince Young.

Browns general manager Ray Farmer confirmed a report from KRIV-TV in Houston that stated the team will bring in the free-agent quarterback to take a physical Monday and work out with the team during its minicamp this week.

Farmer also told reporters Tyler Thigpen would work out.

Young, the former No. 3 overall draft pick and Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2006, had short stays with the Buffalo Bills and Green Bay Packers in 2013. He has not taken a snap in a regular-season game since 2011.

The Browns' interest in Young (or any veteran quarterback on the open market) makes sense -- Brian Hoyer and trick-shot artist Alex Tanney are the only QBs on the roster. It's widely believed Cleveland will use an early draft pick to fortify the position.

Young settled his bankruptcy case earlier this year and has been training in San Diego. The odds are against the former college phenom making a comeback at age 30, but the Browns -- like the Bills and Packers before them -- are willing to check in.
