Young is 30-18 in five seasons, including a playoff loss, but just 13-14 against teams finishing a season at .500 or better. He has battled questions about his work ethic, leadership and injuries.
Young ended 2010 on injured reserve after suffering a season-ending thumb injury on his right, throwing hand Nov. 21. That was the day that he tossed his shoulder pads into the stands and told off then-coach Jeff Fisher in front of the rest of the team before storming out.
