08:01 AM ET 05.13 | The Vikings reportedly have not had internal discussions about acquiring Vince Young. Minnesota drafted Florida State's Christian Ponder with the No. 12 overall pick and is expected to add a veteran once the lockout is lifted. However, Young, at this time, does not appear to be under consideration. ... An NFC general manager said that Young's options could be limited because so many teams addressed their quarterback situation through the draft. Though some teams might not view their rookies as immediate starters, adding a young veteran like Young could become problematic since Young is trying to re-establish himself while a draft pick is being developed.

Yeah ....so much.

Okay, moving on...

Why is he still being considered as a qb in the NFL?

I have no doubt that someone from the ViQueens front office saw that report yesterday and said "oh HELL no!!!"

Hey, someone in the Vikings organization thought it was a good idea to pick up Moss. I don't think this chatter came out of thin air. I believe someone in MN has a hard-on for this guy. It's just a shame that the nameless MS hick won't be there to show them how to text pics of it.

VY will appear on Dr. Phil will he'll reveal that he was never pampered as a kid.

Doesn't a denial mean "Of course we're looking at Vince Young?"

Doesn't "Young's options could be limited" mean "We're running him down to lower the price?"

Jeesh, man, didn't anyone ever negotiate a price for a used car? Same thing.

"...and the worst part it...I never learned how to read!!!!"

I bet MN is has that option open. Not goof for teams to start rookie qbs unless they are really good.

As nutty as this guy is he will be an asset to whatever team he goes to(on the field). He's going to be available at a huge discount and will do anything he's asked to do.

I'm not sure I'd bet on this. He'll probably do a lot of stuff he's asked NOT to do.

Yes, but I never negotiated a price for a car I already knew was a lemon.

Young is going to end up as a backup and strictly a backup somewhere, I say somewhere like the Ravens or Colts where he won't try his antics and if he does he'll be out on his butt pretty fast. No one is going to take a chance on him leading their team right now.

BWahahahahahaha! I think I just wet myself!
