    “We haven’t had any communication yet. Vince is just concentrating on the season. I think that depends on after this year,” Adams said. “We’re willing to talk about his cap situation, but I believe it’ll be after the season.”

    I don't see how this could be a bad thing. Even if the Titans decide they don't want Young on the roster anymore, this could make him a lot easier to trade. Even if he's a total bust, it would be nice to get something in return for him.

    If what his agent is saying is indeed true, it sounds like Vince has gotten some humility about him and wants to stay with the team.
    If that's the case, he may very well have the mindset to buckle down and learn what he needs to.
    I really hope the light switch flips on for him and he starts tearin' shizz up if he gets another start.

    He needs to reduce his salary not only to keep his job, but to help keep the team competitive. Forget about if he deserves the money, no one needs that kind of money. I'm sure he could be fine making a measly ole 5-million.

    Why can't we just look at it for what it is? Vince knows that could affect his staying here. And he's showing that he's humble enough to play for less. I see yo didn't put this quote in your post.

    (For his part, Young said he wants to remain a Titan, but simply wants to play again and contribute to a winning team if or when the opportunity arises.

    “It’s not about the money. It’s not about that. I just want to play football and win. If it’s here, that’s great. If it’s not here, that’s out of my hands,” Young said. “But if it’s here, I’m going to be definitely excited and enthusiastic to get out here and play with my teammates and things like that. But anything else, that’s way over my head right there.”

    Beyond that, Young says he will concentrate on football and leave the contract wrangling to Adams and the Titans front office.)

    Sounds to me like a mature guy who likes where he is. Definitely isn't pouting about being a backup because he could push for a starting job elsewhere. Can't anyone give the guy some dam credit?

    I'd rather have Ron Mexico for cheaper. At least we know he can hit one target: Alge Crumpler. And we got him.

    Good to hear!

    This is just my opinion, but VY may realize that if he takes a pay cut to stay, it's only a matter of time before he is the starter by default. On any other team, that is not a guarantee!

    Either way, smart move by him!

    Pick any picture or video from the link above and apply it to your post; I'm going to have to leave work now because reading it made me too dumb to finish the task I was working on.

    Sounds to me like Vince is starting to see the writing on the wall. Not so long ago, the almighty VY was saying that he was gonna play somewhere soon, wether it was with the Titans or not. Now he's restructuring his deal so he can stay employed? He is pre-emptively talking restructuring before the front office goes that route, smart on his part....but showing that he doesn't think he can get money anywhere else?
