The light at the end of the tunnel in Struggleville has finally blinded the eyes of ex-NFL quarterback and former Heisman Trophy candidate Vince Young.
His excessive spending in Cheesecake Factories worldwide made headlines long after the Texas native was washed up out of the league and it is being reported today, January 22, that Chapter 11 bankruptcy is the next receipt he'll be signing.
Attorney Brian Kilmer of Houston filed the petition last week in a Houston federal bankruptcy court on Young's behalf, listing Young with estimated assets between $500,001 and $1 million and liabilities between $1,001,000 and $10 million.
Over the last year, Young, 30, has been locked in a pair of lawsuits stemming from a $1.8 million loan obtained in his name during the 2011 lockout.
Young was drafted by the Tennessee Titans during the 2006 NFL Draft and had a modest start to his career before injuries and lack of unity with head coach Jeff Fisher dragged his status towards the darkside.
Such struggle never comes with a happy ending. The total amount of Young's assets, earnings and other liabilities weren't made immediately available for the report.
