Fans became disgruntled and Young himself did too by the end of his tenure with the Titans, getting into an argument in the locker room with head coach Jeff Fisher during the 2010 season. Young was benched following that incident and released on July 28, 2011. Photo: Greg McWilliams/Icon SMI
Change of scenery
Young was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles in the summer of 2011 to be Michael Vick's backup. Young started three games for an injured Vick, going 1-2. That Eagles squad, hyped in the offseason as a "Dream Team," was anything but that, finishing 8-8 and missing the playoffs. Photo: Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports / Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports
Young agreed to a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills on May 11, 2012.

Packing it in
A shot with the Green Bay Packers also didn't work out for Young, who was released on Aug. 31, 2013.
