Former NFL and University of Texas quarterback Vince Young has recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The Houston federal bankruptcy court listed Young had estimated assets between $500,001 and $1 million and liabilities between $1,001,000 and $10 million. The 30-year-old is fighting two lawsuits stemming from a $1.8 million loan obtained in his name during the 2011 NFL lockout. The original loan amount has grown to $2.5 million with interest. A court has granted a judgment against Young to Pro Player Funding, the company that made the loan. Pro Player Funding has made several attempts to enforce the collection of the judgment, but those efforts remain pending.
Young was a first-round pick by Tennessee in 2006, and he reportedly signed a five-year deal with $25.7 million guaranteed. He reportedly signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles that was worth up to $5 million in 2011. Young was on Green Bay’s pre-season roster in 2013, but did not make the team.
