Vince Young says he knows a shameless money grab when he sees one, and that's what's going on with the woman who sued him for an alleged assault.
Young's attorneys tell TMZ Sports Tiffany Cayo first made this allegation privately to Vince more than a year ago. We're told Vince's legal team interviewed several key witnesses -- there were 4 people in the car -- who all backed Young's denial of the incident.
Young's team says the witness testimony -- including people who saw Cayo after the alleged hair pulling assault -- made it clear the incident never happened, and it was presented to Cayo's attorneys.
That's why Young's lawyers think Cayo's lawsuit is a "clear attempt to extract money" from Vince. They say the ex-NFL star is planning to file a counter lawsuit against Cayo.
