Former NFL star Vince Young is not only out of the league, but broke.
His financial fall from grace is extreme even by pro athlete standards.
Six years after joining the NFL as the third player taken in the draft out of the University of Texas, Young has little of the $26 million his contract(s) guaranteed him.
In addition to a lucrative NFL deals, the QB also had endorsements worth another $30 million, deals that included Reebok, Madden '08, and the National Dairy Council.
So what the heck happened?
Young is suing his former agent, Major Adams, and a North Carolina financial planner, Ronnie Peoples, alleging that they misappropriated $5.5 million of his money.
In some instances, the pair forged his signature or impersonated him on the phone or in emails, according to the lawsuit, filed by Young in Houston in June.
"I would just say that Vince needs a job," said Trey Dolezal, Young's attorney, when asked to give a general assessment of his client's finances these days.
"They conspired to take Vince's money," Dolezal added. "It's that simple."
Not according to the accused.
