Young Seeks Protection from Loan Company

Bills quarterback Vince Young filed a request seeking a protective court order to stop a company from collecting nearly $1.7 million on a loan the Buffalo quarterback said he has no knowledge of ever taking out, the Associated Press reports.

In papers filed in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Monday, Young said he never dealt with the loan company, Pro Player Funding. He added, he has no recollection of agreeing to or signing documents to take out a $1.877 million loan in May 2011.

And Young said in an affidavit that he is unaware of who took out the loan in his name and that, to his knowledge, he never received any money from the loan.

In filing the motion, the quarterback’s attorneys are asking the court to stop Pro Player from attempting to collect money and also bar the company from approaching the quarterback as they say happened during training camp.

Young said a person tried to approach him at training camp in suburban Rochester earlier this month in an attempt to serve him papers to appear for a deposition regarding the loan. The person, Young said, was turned away by security officials.

The papers, the quarterback said, were eventually left with Bills officials and forwarded to Young.

Young’s motion comes in response to Pro Player’s claims that the quarterback defaulted on the loan by missing in payment in May shortly after signing a one-year contract potentially worth $3 million with Buffalo.
