ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Vince Young s allegations that his former financial adviser Ron Peoples cheated the quarterback out of millions of dollars are described as hollow and without merit.

In response to a lawsuit filed by the Buffalo Bills player in Houston this week, Peoples attorney David Chaumette released a statement saying his client did nothing wrong and will be cleared of any liability.

Peoples and his Raleigh, N.C.-based firm are accused of misappropriating at least $5.5 million of Young s earnings from 2006 to 2011. Young s former agent, Major Adams II, is also named in the lawsuit, and accused of conspiring with Peoples.

Chaumette says transactions made by Peoples firm were approved by a trustee appointed by Young. Chaumette did not reveal the trustee, and noted the person was not named in Young s lawsuit.
