If we sign him, i could see us cutting or trading Palmer. Then we'd have VY & Pryor battle it out in camp for the starting spot

This tells me more about Palmer than anything?

Thats what this time of year is for. Its better than making threads based off of who we think the raiders should sign.

Young is in talks with the Raiders about visiting them for a workout, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Rapoport cautioned that those talks are “preliminary,” so we’re probably not going to be seeing Young in the Silver and Black any time soon.

Another way to spin Vince Young "buzz" -- agent asks for workout and Raiders say "hmmm, maybe, we'll get back to you."


I'd say wait and see on this one.

How about neither? That's what the FA thread is for.

There is a FA thread but if he were to be brought in and Palmer was gone, I'd be open for him competing w/ Pryor. They're essentially the same QB while Young has more natural talent.

Actually having a VY thread wouldn't be bad. I mean if we signed him the FA thread would be like 10 pages immediately of doom and gloom and "Reggie should be fired" and "Palmer gave us the best chance to win." "Clowning for Clowney."

At least this way it's all in one place.

Also I wouldn't mind VY coming in, I mean him and Pryor are really the same guy.

Thats what makes me think Palmer would be gone. If your starting qb is a mobile qb, then you should have mobile back-ups. That way if the starter gets hurt you dont have to change your offense. I don't want to get rid of Palmer but if it can give us financial flexibility for future deals i'm all for it. Right now we are not a playoff team. So why not get rid of all the big contracts? I wouldn't be shocked if we start hearing about DMC getting cut, traded or asked to take a paycut

It looks like Young initiated talks with a request for a workout. This one appears to be a non-story for right now.

Wouldn't want that quitter running my team anyway. Confused
