ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Tennessee Titans’ decision to part ways with head coach Jeff Fisher won’t impact the team’s stated decision to trade or release quarterback Vince Young.
Titans owner Bud Adams spoke after the season that he has directed the team’s general manager, Mike Reinfeldt, to trade or release the former third overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft this off-season.
Adams announced that decision before stating that Fisher would return in 2011.
Young (6-5, 232) has started 47 of 54 games over the last five seasons, two of which (2005, 2009) ended with trips to the Pro Bowl. Young finished 2010 on injured reserve with a thumb injury that required surgery.
Young has completed 689-of-1,190 pass attempts for 8,098 yards with 42 touchdowns and 42 interceptions in career, compiling a 75.7 passer rating. Young has also added 1,380 yards and 12 touchdowns on 264 rushing attempts.
