It’s largely thought the Cleveland Browns will draft a quarterback at some point in the first round of next week’s draft, but before then, they’ll try out a name fans will know.
Vince Young will try out with Browns. He last played for Eagles in 2011. More recently he was cut by Bills & Packers. pic.twitter.com/P48d9O6fMM

Here are some details from ESPN:
Young was not in the league last season, and general manager Ray Farmer said he wants to see him perform and that the minicamp tryout is the best way.
“He’s had success in the National Football League,” Farmer said. “We wanted to take the opportunity to get the chance to see where he was. We’d been kind of following him through the offseason. He’d been doing some things that kind of caught our eye and made us kind of take note.”
Young made 50 starts between 2006 and 2011. He completed 57.9 percent of his passes with 46 touchdowns and 51 interceptions. He is 31-19 as a starter and twice made the Pro Bowl.
The Browns will also tryout veteran QB Tyler Thigpen in a team mini-camp that starts on Tuesday.
With Young in town, someone alert the local Cheesecake factory.
