Young was asked if he still sees himself as a starting quarterback.
“Yeah definitely,” said Young. “Always want to go in and compete for the starting job and the things that I put myself through to get better and better and to better myself as a quarterback, just waiting on that opportunity to get the chance to do that.”
So far a couple of teams have shown some interest in Young.
“We have a couple of teams with interest right now and I’m just sitting back and waiting and letting my agent, Tom Condon, do his work. Pretty much just waiting till after the draft with the new CBA rule, all the different cap rules and things like that, just looking for the best opportunity for myself, my family and for me to go out and compete for a starting job.”
He was asked if he’d like to play for the Houston Texans.
“I would love to play at home. That would be a dream come true and anything I can do to help out with the team, I just saw Arian Foster the other day and gave him a lot of respect when I saw him and just a lot of history with some of the guys around town anyway that I know from knowing each other a while and always keeping in contact with each other, come to my foundation and charity events and football camps so that would be great. I just let Tom take care of that and let him do his job. All I can do is just stay ready, keep working out and training in Houston and waiting for that opportunity to come.”
If Young is going to ever be a starting quarterback again in the NFL, he’ll have to earn it by working harder then he’s ever worked.
