Vince Young doesn’t think his NFL career is over.

Young said in a statement to the Houston Chronicle that he has now settled his bankruptcy case and is beginning training in San Diego to return to the NFL.

“I am pleased with the quick resolution of my bankruptcy case. With all these battles behind me, I am able to devote my sole focus on family, football and pursuing all opportunities in front of me,” Young said.

The 30-year-old Young spent time with the Packers last offseason and the Bills the offseason before that, but he hasn’t played in a regular-season game since 2011, when he was with the Eagles. Although Young showed flashes of promise with the Titans and was selected to the Pro Bowl after the 2006 and 2009 seasons, he has never been a consistent passer, and he has drawn criticism at times for lacking the work ethic that an NFL team wants from its quarterback. He’s a long shot to make it back to the NFL.
