Former NFL quarterback Vince Young’s name can’t seem to stay out of the news cycle this year.
Young, who led the Texas Longhorns to a BCS National Championship and was the third overall pick of the Tennessee Titans in the 2006 NFL draft, recently spoke with Sports Illustrated and took a shot at Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
“I’d see a quarterback and be like, ‘Dude is garbage, and I’m over here in the kitchen cooking turkey necks!?'” Young told Sports Illustrated.
“I hate to name-drop, but [Ryan] Fitzpatrick is still playing!? He leads the league in interceptions, and he’s still f—— getting paid? I mean, what the f— is going on?”
Young may not be alone in that thinking.
Fitzpatrick has a terrible season for the New York Jets last year, after posting a lengthy contract holdout that saw the Jets pay a huge fee for the interception-prone signal caller’s services.
Fitzpatrick tossed 17 interceptions last season, third-most in the league behind the Los Angeles Chargers’ Phillip Rivers and Bucs young quarterback Jameis Winston.
Young also took a shot at his former head coach, telling Sports Illustrated that his former Titans head coach Jeff Fisher took all the fun out of football.
“I’m going to expose his ass,” Young stated.
When discussing Fisher Young discussed an incident when was left behind on a road trip to Philadelphia after he left his ID at home and went to retrieve it.
“I feel like Fisher did that s— on purpose,” Young said, adding that Fisher had held the plane for other players in the past. “I’m pulling in, seeing them pull the door down. I can hear the team yelling.”
Young later told Fisher, “Where I’m from, that’s like saying F you.”
Will Vince Young, 34, get another shot in the NFL?
Time will tell, but his recent quips will certainly keep him in the headlines.
Jets’ Quincy Enunwa Blasts Team Following Fine
New York Jets’ veteran wide receiver Quincy Enunwa, who suffered a season-ending neck injury, is blasting the team on social media after being hit with a fine for missing medical treatments, according to ESPN’s Rick Cimini.
Enunwa says that he missed two treatments, scheduled on November 8th and November 11th, and was fined $27,900, which is the maximum allowed under the collective bargaining agreement, fines Enunwa called “excessive.”
Enunwa, 27, is currently on injured reserve.
Enunwa says that he missed Monday’s treatment because he took his mother, a veteran, our to lunch for Veteran’s Day. Enunwa explains that he missed November 8th’s treatment because he “had to handle an emergency in my house”.
“Given everything that’s going on around the team I thought this could’ve been handled so many different ways,” Enunwa tweeted. “I’ve spent my time with the team trying to build myself up to be dependable and hardworking so this s— hurts.”
“The biggest reason is hurts is that I’m on IR for the second time in my career and the doctor told me I have a 50/50 chance of coming back to play,” Enunwa said. “I shouldn’t even have to be in that building being reminded every day of what I can’t do.
“This s— feels like punishment already and then they FINE me the max. And then want me to continue to do my rehab there and IF I get healthy they want me to play for them after.
“I’m not writing this for sympathy and never wanted to even say anything, but when multiple teammates are coming up to me saying it’s f—– up I don’t care to sit on it anymore.”
The Jets have declined to comment.
Jets’ Jamal Adams Rips Jets’ General Manager
New York Jets safety Jamal Adams is not too happy with general manager Joe Douglas, and the organization, after the team tried to deal Adams ahead of the NFL trade deadline despite Adams’ saying he expressed his desire to remain with the team during a meeting with Douglas and Jets’ head coach Adam Gase.
According to ESPN, the Jets had received an offer from the Dallas Cowboys of a 1st round draft pick for the Pro Bowl Adams, and were also engaged in talks with the Baltimore Ravens.
Adams didn’t hold back when addressed the situation on Twitter.
Any reports of me asking to be traded from the New York Jets are completely false.

At the end of the week last week, I sat down with the GM and Coach Gase and told them I want to be here in New York. I was told yesterday by my agent that the GM then went behind my back and shopped me around to teams, even after I asked him to keep me here! Crazy business.

Douglas then commented on the now brewing rift between Adams and the team, making mention of Adams removing the Jets from his social media bio, and detailed what had gone down.
“Teams have been calling us ever since there was a social media issue a few weeks back,” Douglas said. “My message was clear, that Jamal was an absolute stud and we’re not interested in moving him. Teams continued to call. I was always taught where I’m from, if a team calls, you listen to what they have to say.”
The Jets didn’t just receive interest in Adams, as there was also interest in running back Le’Veon Bell and wide receiver Robby Anderson, with one team making an offer of a fourth round draft pick for Anderson, which was below what the Jets were asking; a second rounder.
Douglas said he spoke to Bell and Anderson after the deadline, and was planning on speaking with Adams as well.
“We were not shopping any of those players,” Douglas said.
Bell had been heavily rumored to be available, but following the passing of the deadline, he took to social media to state his happiness to still be a Jet.

Jets’ Sam Darnold Cleared to Return Against Cowboys
The New York Jets will have quarterback Sam Darnold back under center for their Week 6 tilt against the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium.
Darnold, who has missed a few weeks while dealing with mono, will start for the Jets as they host the Cowboys, according to an official team announcement.
Darnold has been sidelined since Week 2 with mononucleosis, and will now try to help the winless Jets get their season back on track. The Jets offense has been simply awful thus far in the 2019 season, ranking last in the NFL in total offense, and 31st in scoring.
It’s unclear just how much Darnold will help an abysmal Jets offense, but having him back in the lineup certainly won’t hurt.
