Salary Cap Sayz: Vince Young Gone by Next Season

Decoding the NFL salary cap usually requires a room full of PhD's, two abacuses (abaci?) and one santaria candle. Much thanks then to ESPN.com blogger Paul Kuharsky, who crunched the numbers and found near-irrefutable proof that Vince Young will no longer be a Titan after the 2009 season.

Barring a scenario where he replaced an injured Kerry Collins and had an MVP season or won a Super Bowl as the starter -- and maybe even in the context of such unlikely events -- it's unfathomable that Young will be a Titan under this contract in 2010 -- when he's due a $4.25 roster bonus, a $7.5 million base salary and would cost $14.21against the cap under contract and only $4.29 million if he was taken off the roster in 2010.

So, according to the salary cap, if the Titans don't cut or trade Young by next year he'll be paid like a franchise quarterback. In short, come 2010 he becomes a Cap Killer. And that's why, barring some major restructuring, he'll no longer be in Nashville.
