The Cleveland Browns agreed to terms with Vince Young, and the former Longhorn quarterback will suit up for the Browns when training camp begins July 25.

Young participated in the Browns’ Spring minicamp, which began earlier this week, and Young’s performance in the minicamp was obviously strong enough to warrant a deal with the Browns.

In addition to signing Young, the Browns also signed QB Tyler Thigpen who, according to CBSSports, had a strong minicamp and even outperformed Young.

Whether Young will receive any playing time during the Browns’ 2014 campaign is yet to be determined, as he is likely filling out the Browns’ depth behind presumed starter Brian Hoyer and new backup Thigpen.

Young has not taken an NFL snap since 2011, when he was Michael Vick’s backup for the Philadelphia Eagles.

The recent UT graduate did participate in the 2013 preseason with the Green Bay Packers, though he was cut before the start of the regular season.

Young, who was selected to two Pro Bowls during his stint with the Tennessee Titans, has completed 57.9 percent of his passes with 46 touchdowns and 51 interceptions.
