Vince Young Reportedly Agrees To Join CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders

Posted March 11, 2017

With his draft stock at an all-time high, Young declared early and was taken third overall in the 2006 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans.

Young was the No. 3 overall selection in the 2006 National Football League draft by the Tennessee Titans, where he played five seasons.

While the 32 teams in the NFL are busy clearing up cap space and signing free agents today, former NFL QB Vince Young has found work elsewhere.

Young's agent, Leigh Steinberg, tweeted Wednesday that he was on his way to Regina to finalize a deal with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

While not in a hole as deep as Arsenal's, Napoli are certainly in trouble heading into the second leg of this tie. That proved pretty much conclusive as Napoli struggled to regroup and reassert themselves in the match.

Now, though, he's looking to make a return - north of the border.

"I've got a family now, I've got kids", Young said. Young bounced back in 2009, his fourth year in league, combining for more than 2,100 yards and 12 touchdowns and was named Comeback Player of the Year, as well as earning a trip to his second Pro Bowl. After his season in Philadelphia, he had short tryouts with Buffalo (2012), Green Bay (2013) and Cleveland (2014).

Since leaving the NFL, Young has been working for the University of Texas in its diversity department and doing TV work on the Longhorn Network. I'm so excited to play the game again.

"It's certainly a different game", said Chris Jones, Saskatchewan's head coach/GM. However, Young will compete with veteran Kevin Glenn, 37, Canadian Brandon Bridge and Americans G.J. Kinne, Jake Waters and Bryan Bennett, all of whom have time invested into the Canadian game. He announced his retirement shortly thereafter.

In 2007, Kerry Joseph won the CFL's Most Outstanding Player award and led the Roughriders to the Grey Cup title. "This was a good move for me because I still have the fire to play football".
