2010 season

Young signed a futures contract with the Washington Redskins on January 5, 2010.[7] When he reported for camp, Young was surprised to learn that he had been converted to a fullback. Head coach Mike Shanahan stated, "Just the way he hit, we needed some fullbacks and we thought since he had good hands he might be the ideal candidate," which was the reason for Young's transition.[8] The position wasn't completely foreign to Young, who was recruited to Villanova as a running back before he was moved to linebacker. He ended up making the Redskins' final 53-man roster as the backup fullback after all cuts were made. On November 15, 2010, Young scored his first career receiving touchdown, a three-yard reception from Donovan McNabb, in a 59–28 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.[9]
