Former Heisman Trophy winner Vince Young, now with the Buffalo Bills,  is suing his former agent and former financial adviser over millions of dollars of missing money, according to reports.

The Houston Chronicle reported that Young’s suit accuses former agent Major Adams II and financial adviser Ron Peoples of “fraud, unjust enrichment, conversion, breach of fiduciary duty, usury and breach of contract.”

Young’s lawyer said that at least $5.5 million is missing, according to reports, and the lawsuit was needed in order to determine “what happened to a large sum of money that there’s no accounting for.”

Adams and Peoples worked for Young during his five years with the Tennessee Titans. He signed a rookie contract worth at least $54 million in 2006. Adams was reported to be a family friend when Young hired him, and he has no other NFL clients.

“There has been at least some evidence that there has been some fraud and some forgeries using [Young’s] name over the last several years that we believe that Major Adams and Ron Peoples are responsible for,” Trey Dolezal, the lawyer who filed the lawsuit for Young, told the Chronicle on Monday. “We have no idea how much money is missing.”
