He's been through more with the niners but Young had quite a time of it in the USFL and TB. Not sure who had more problems but Young had a personal contract with the owner of the Express for a 40 million dollar annuity paid over 40 years. Always a smart lad! He received two fresh starts.
Great article by the way, as it gives me hope for a turn around.
