NFL Free Agents: Vince Young Interested In San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers still don't know who their starting quarterback could be. Alex Smith is looking around, particularly at Miami, which could leave San Francisco with Colin Kaepernick and (if they go after him) Josh Johnson. Not exactly an inspiring depth chart that'll strike fear into the hearts of their opponents.

Shockingly, one backup quarterback might be throwing himself at San Francisco. Or something. He seems interested at least if this tweet is any indication.

Vince Young, eh? This is a guy who hasn't looked particularly good as a starter lately, hasn't looked much better as a backup, and is simply floating around the edges of the league right now. It'd be a strange decision for the 49ers to look at Young.

However, if Smith does end up elsewhere, the 49ers are going to be really looking hard for quarterbacks, and Young might be a potential backup option.
