Former NFL quarterback Vince Young believes he has more in the tank.

Young hired agent Leigh Steinberg in a bid to help the 33-year-old find a new home in the NFL. Young last played a snap with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011, perhaps most famously remembered for his ill-fated “Dream Team” comment on a club that fell far short of expectation.

Young is looking to achieve his “dream of playing more football, being (a) role model,” Steinberg posted on Twitter Wednesday.

A former NFL Rookie of the Year and two-time Pro Bowler, Young was last on a roster in 2014 when he spent almost two weeks with the Cleveland Browns. He announced his retirement shortly thereafter.

Young had his moments after being selected with the third overall pick in the 2006 draft, compiling a 30-17 record with the Tennessee Titans. He started the final three games for Philadelphia in 2011.

Young has endured off-the-field issues as he filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in January 2014 and was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated in January 2016. He was sentenced to 18 months’ probation after pleading no contest last month.
