ORCHARD PARK, NY - The Buffalo Bills today announced that free agent QB Vince Young has agreed to terms on a contract with the team. In accordance with team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"We think adding Vince to our roster will create more competition for the backup quarterback position," said Bills General Manager Buddy Nix. He brings with him some unique physical abilities that most are aware of and that will make the competition interesting. It's all about improving our team."
Young, a two-time Pro Bowl selection following the 2006 and 2009 seasons, has completed 755-of-1,304 passes for 8,964 yards and 46 touchdowns and added 1,459 rushing yards on 282 attempts with 12 touchdowns in 60 games. He holds a 31-19 record in 50 career starts.
The 6-5, 232-pound Texas product was selected in the first-round (third overall) by Tennessee in 2006 and spent his first five NFL seasons with the Titans before signing with Philadelphia in 2011.
