Former Eagles quarterback Vince Young retires from the NFL

Rich Schultz

The man famous for bestowing the 2011 Eagles with the "Dream Team" moniker has officially called it a career.

Former Eagles quarterback Vince Young has ended his NFL career. On Saturday, Young told Brent Carney of KXAN in Austin, Texas that he was calling it quits after bouncing around on offseason rosters for the last three seasons. Young had stints with the Browns, Packers and Bills during that time period.

Young's last regular season game was in Dec. 2011 against the Jets when he was the backup quarterback for the Eagles. He only spent one season in Philadelphia as the backup to Michael Vick. In six games (three starts), Young completed 66-of-114 passes for 866 passing yards, four touchdowns and nine interceptions. He also added 18 carries for 79 rushing yards and two fumbles. His crowning achievement as an Eagle was a game-winning drive against the Giants during a lost season. He was also the man that initially dubbed the 2011 Eagles as the "Dream Team."

Young was a first round pick of the Titans in 2006 and played for Tennessee for five seasons. He had 8,964 passing yards, 58 total touchdowns, 51 interceptions and 1,459 rushing yards in his NFL career. He was the 2006 Rookie of the Year, the 2009 NFL Comeback Player of the Year and a two-time Pro Bowl selection.
