08:52 AM ET 01.26 | Former NFL quarterback Vince Young admitted under oath he probably signed at least some of the documents for a $1.9 million loan he claims he shouldn't have to repay. "All I know is I probably could have signed some of them, and I feel like some of them are fishy," he testified in a videotaped deposition last month. A copy of the deposition transcript was obtained by The Associated Press. Young, who has been out of football since he was cut by the Buffalo Bills before the start of the 2012 season, is fighting a $1.7 million judgment against him obtained by New York-based Pro Player Funding LLC last July. The former University of Texas star has said he wasn't involved in seeking the high-interest loan, funded during the NFL lockout in 2011, and never got the proceeds. But in the deposition, taken Dec. 13 in Houston, Young acknowledged he probably signed some of the paperwork in the presence of a notary during a visit to the office of a Houston lawyer. "I went to sign some papers that my financial adviser asked me to go over and sign, but I don't remember what it was," he testified.

$1.9 million dollars in question and he doesn't know what he signed. Some people are so dumb they should forfeit their right to live.

"I would just say that Vince needs a job," said Trey Dolezal, Young???s attorney, when asked to give a general assessment of his client???s finances.

From a September 2012 interview.

I would say it does not matter, he had a great one. VY does did not have a revenue problem, he had a spending problem. And you cannot fix his problem.

Too late. No matter what you make it out for, that check is already bouncing.

He could do as well to follow a trail of breadcrumbs at this point.
