CBS' Charlie Casserly reported that the Titans will pay Young's $4.25 million 2011 roster bonus when it comes due in the offseason. There would be no reason for the Titans to pay the bonus if they didn't plan to keep Young on the roster -- and at this point, after the most recent public falling out between Fisher and Young, it's hard to see how Young's return doesn't lead to Fisher's departure. After all, the owner would be publicly saying that he believes in the quarterback more than the coach.
At this point it's only one report, so we don't know that it's true. Adams' Texas roots give Casserly's report some credibility, but if it's accurate, it's hard to see how this isn't a poor choice by the owner. Young has had a series of problems in Tennessee, from a tendency to stay separate from his teammates, to inconsistent performances that have led to multiple benchings, to emotional problems that led him to at one point leave the team.
Young still has the talent to be a successful quarterback in this league, but if he remains with a team that chose him over the coach, another coach would likely struggle to any more success in pointing him in the right direction.
