Former NFL quarterback Vince Young recently suffered a loss that was bigger than any L he obtained while playing in the National Football Field.
The ex-Titans QB lost possession of two storage units in Houston, Texas, after failing to make the rental payments. The contents of his storage was auctioned off by an unidentified woman who hit the mother-load. She told TMZ she only paid a few grand for several pieces of memorabilia belonging to the National Championship-winning quarterback.
“We’re told items in the storage unit included Young’s Maxwell Award, his MVP trophy from the 2006 Rose Bowl and a whole bunch of other one-of-a-kind items.
We’re told the ball from his first-ever NFL touchdown pass was also in there … and even helmets he used throughout his career — including the ’06 Rose Bowl game — were in there.
Currently, she’s only listed Young’s Maxwell Award, his Rose Bowl MVP trophy and his Manning Award for sale … with the asking price of $50,000 for each on eBay.
The woman tells us she hasn’t been able to get into contact with Young about the stuff … but says she would be willing to resell all of it back to him if he wants.”
Young threw for 2,199 yards and 12 touchdowns during his rookie year in Nashville, racking up 552 yards rush yards and adding another seven scores on the ground.
He was named Offensive Rookie of the Year for this effort.
After five seasons in Tennessee, he would go on to join the Philadelphia Eagles in 2010 and serve as Michael Vick’s backup.
His final years ended with him not making any squads in 2012 with Buffalo, Packers in 2013, and Cleveland in 2014.
