Geez, the #3 pick can make more than the #1 pick overall. Williams makes more guaranteed money though.

Default Vince Young Signed

John McClain reports to 610 Radio that Young has signed for purported 25.7 Million guaranteed/ 58 million total deal.

Quote:
Agent Major Adams has negotiated a contract that could be worth as much as $58 million.
This must mean the deal is laden with incentives to be earned.

IMO the inexperienced Adams would be a liability for VY, but no way. He was
the deal closer for Vince while the bumbling West Coast agent Segal (I think that's his name), screwed up the first round pick for Bush and is eating Vince's dust again as the UT grad heads to the bank with his big payday.
Kudos to VY and his agent Major Adams. And so much for the Wonderlic score - no big deal, which I was dead wrong about to.

Vince's deal is worth up to $58 million if he reaches all his incentives, who knows the likelihood of getting all of those. According to PFT Mario can earn up to $62 million with all his incentives. I wonder if they'll ever report what Vince got for his base contract value without incentives. Good luck to Reggie getting Benson to pony up that kind of dough, he could be in for a long hold out.

It's good to see McClain is putting more interest in VY than the Texans. Bravo :brickwall

Congrats to VY and his family. There was some doubt as to how his agent Major Adams would do and looks like this is a good deal for both sides.

So much does Reggie ask for now? And how much more likely is a lenghty hold out?

Good for Vince on the deal, I hope (as I do for all kids who sigh these insane contracts) that he is smart with his money. Just look at the modern lives of MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice, if you need an example.

Personally I thought people were acting in a virtual mob mentality when it came to the anti-Vince beat-down as the mob predicted him dropping like a rock and being so dumb he hired some ghetto trained pimp dog Uncle to represent him. So far he has taken to the offense well and he set his family up financially for the rest of their lives. Good for Vince. I'm glad we have one of our own locals doing good things. We just need to find a way to beat him when we face him.
Fair enough.
I've been critical of VY, both the player's potential in the NFL and the wisdom of the Texans taking him. And I'm still glad we didn't draft him, but I may yet need to admit to being wrong about that also.
But I wish Vince nothing but the best in the NFL now that he's got a done deal with the Titans. Except of course when he's playing you know who.
