Former Chiefs QB Tyler Thigpen Competing With Vince Young For NFL Career

The Buffalo Bills have reportedly set the top and bottom of the quarterback spot on the depth chart. Ryan Fitzpatrick is the unquestioned starter. He was given a major extension last season and despite spotty play at times, he's clearly the go-to man under center for Chan Gailey's team. Brad Smith, former Mizzou quarterback, is also the third stringer on the roster out of Bills mini-camp and the report is that he will remain there for the season.

That leaves former Chiefs quarterback Tyler Thigpen and Vince Young to fight for their roster spot at No. 2 on the depth chart.Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen are battling for the backup job.

NFL Network's Gregg Rosenthal writes, "With Smith's spot as the No. 3 quarterback secure, it doesn't take a genius to realize that the loser of the Thigpen/Young will be out of a job. This is Young's last, best chance to make an impact as a pro. We like his chances."

Thigpen and Young have both earned the journeyman tag honestly, so it's an honest question to ask whether or not this is the last stop for either in the NFL. Young has bounced around to several teams and can't seem to stick despite obvious talent. Thigpen seems to be a favorite of Gailey, so if he's cut from the Bills, what will that mean for him? Several former Chiefs are involved in all of this, so it's interesting to watch how players and coaches are still performing away from KC.
