An awful lot of unwarranted hate for VY in this thread.
a.) Headcases can change. Especially in a better environment. Think of the guys on that team when Young was drafted, is it any surprise that he doesn't know what is required of a NFL player to succeed at the highest level?
b.) Shannahan can deal with headcases and has dealt with them well in the past. Clinton Portis anyone? Jay Cutler?
c.) Lastly but most importantly, this is a NO RISK, possible HIGH REWARD acquisition. The Reskins would not love anything by giving VY a chance during camp, if he doesn't impress, cut his ass. If he does impress we gain one of two things 1.) Depth at the QB position or 2.) A new starting QB, for absolutely nothing.
