In a widely anticipated move, Tennessee Titans has decided to let go of quarterback Vince Young. The position of Vince Young and head coach Jeff Fisher was unstable after both clashed publicly in November.
It was understood that at least one would have to leave the club before the new season began.
However, Bud Adams, owner of the Titans team, released a statement where he not only released Vince Young from his obligations to the club but also informed the head coach that his services too were under appraisal.
The owner was suitably polite and generous in his praise of Vince Young. However, he was unequivocal in his decision to inform Vince Young through his agent that his services were no longer required and that he was no longer on the roster.
The poor show by the Titans in AFC South this year with six wins and ten losses has placed the position of the head coach Jeff Fisher in jeopardy. Young, who clashed with Fisher, was a first round choice for the Titans in 2006.
However, he had struggled to find a permanent place in the team after being forced to compete with Kerry Collins, who had more experience, for the past three years.
