Former Titans QB Vince Young lost valuables in storage unit auction
Former Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young lost some of his valuable possessions in a storage unit auction.
If there’s one lesson to be learned from this story about former Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young, it’s that you should never forget to pay your storage unit bill.
Young owned a storage unit that held some valuables of his from his college and pro playing days, but he lost the items in an auction because he didn’t pay his bill, according to TMZ.
"Vince Young just lost a crapload of his most prized football possessions in a storage unit auction … and now, his loss can be your gain, ’cause the new owner tells us she’s sellin’ it all!!Young apparently didn’t pay the fees for his storage space in Houston, Texas … and it’s a bummer for the dude, ’cause some of his COOLEST memorabilia was in there."
Some of the items included his Maxwell Award, his MVP trophy from the 2006 Rose Bowl, the helmet he wore in the 2006 Rose Bowl game and the football that was thrown for his first career touchdown pass in the National Football League.
The lady who bought the unit wants to remain anonymous, according to Tahera Rahman of KXAN, but plans to sell the goods eBay, per the TMZ report. She spent a few thousand dollars in order to acquire the unit once owned by Young.
Young played his college ball at Texas and was the quarterback of the team that won the NCAA National Championship for the 2005 season with a 41-38 victory over USC.
Young was drafted by the Titans with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft and played five seasons with the team. His last season in the NFL came in 2011 when he played in just six games for the Philadelphia Eagles.
After his playing days were over, Young battled substance abuse issues for years, but has since rebounded and is getting his life together.
