NFL briefs: Browns sign Vince Young; Broncos extend Von Miller
First Published May 01 2014 09:43 pm • Last Updated May 01 2014 10:09 pm

FOOTBALL • The Browns have signed free agent quarterback Vince Young, who hasn’t played in an NFL regular-season game since 2011. Young was given a tryout this week at minicamp and showed enough to earn a deal. The team also signed quarterback Tyler Thigpen. Young, 30, made two Pro Bowls during his five seasons with Tennessee, which drafted him with the No. 3 overall pick in 2006. The 6-foot-5, 229-pounder will initially back up Brian Hoyer. The Browns will likely use a high draft pick on a quarterback next week.

BRONCOS • Denver has exercised its 2015 option on pass-rusher Von Miller. He now has two years left on his rookie deal. He’ll make $3.25 million next season and $9.754 million in 2015 if he’s on the Broncos’ roster next March. Miller had 30 sacks in his first two seasons, including a club record 18½ in 2012. But his 2013 began with a six-game drug suspension, included several off-field distractions and ended with a torn ACL in December that sidelined him for the Super Bowl.
