Vince Young would like to make a comeback, so he signed with an agent who already made one.
Young signed with super-agent Leigh Steinberg Wednesday with a "dream of playing more football."
Young has been out of football since a failed tryout with the Browns in 2014. He spent 2013 training camp with the Packers and has not played in an NFL game since 2011 while with the Eagles.
Steinberg was once the super agent, representing the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft a record eight times. He is also one credited as the real-life inspiration of Tom Cruise's sports agent character Jerry Maguire in the 1996 film of the same name. But Steinberg fell into financial ruin because of alcoholism and lost his NFLPA certification in 2008.
Once he returned to NFL representation in 2014, his first client was SMU quarterback Garrett Gilbert, who was a sixth-round pick of the Rams.
Steinberg represented Paxton Lynch last year and the former Memphis quarterback was taken in the first round by the Broncos.
Steinberg counts top NFL prospect Patrick Mahomes among his clients this year.
Now that he's back, Steinberg is hoping to help Young restore what was a once promising career. Young led Texas to a 2005 national championship and was the third overall pick in the 2006 draft by the Titans. He was the NFL's Rookie of the Year and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2006, again making the Pro Bowl in 2009.
After getting injured during the 2010 season, and the Titans owning a 4-5 record, Young had a falling out with then-Titans coach Jeff Fisher. The Titans turned to Rusty Smith at quarterback and Young was released the following summer. He made three starts and appeared in six games for the Eagles in 2011, but did not have his one-year contract re-upped.
Even if the NFL isn't in Young's future, the new Spring League has expressed interest in signing him.
