Vince Young Denies That He’s Broke & Addicted To The Cheesecake Factory [LISTEN]


Vince Young’s bank account may not have as many zeroes as it used to, but be clear: he’s not broke. The former Tennessee Titan blew through his fortune, spending thousands of dollars on his teammates, friends, and meals at the Cheesecake Factory (allegedly), but now he’s firing back.Young posted messages on his Twitter page confirming his financial hardship, but doesn’t want America to get the story twisted. “I can’t really talk much about it, we definitely in court with it,” he told AM 1300’s The Zone. “Me being who I am I just took a chance in finding out some things about my finances and I feel like it wasn’t in the right place it needed to be, so I really feel like it was good thing for me to do what I’m doing right now.”

Given his status, Young said that much of the stories have been blown out of proportion. As for the whole Cheesecake Factory situation, the 29-year-old denied that he always foots the bills.  “Most of the time if I do go to those places, if we do pay a tab it’s not just me paying a tab, it’s all of us paying a tab.”

Going forward, Young hopes to get picked up by another  NFL team, and has been focusing on training. If that doesn’t work out, there are other opportunities for him. “Because you’re not playing football it doesn’t mean your life is over.”

    He’s a great guy who is very charitable and generous. Yet, the media will never write a story about what he does for struggling inner-city kids, what he did for McNair sons, etc… the media hates him and I never understood why. Very sad indeed. Because he came from nothing and has accomplished alot to be successful against all odds. I hope he proves them wrong one day.
