Vince Young signs with Saskatchewan of CFL

It’s a big day in the NFL, but we’ll hit pause on the free agency feeding frenzy to bring a note from our neighbors to the north.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League announced on Thursday that they have signed former Titans quarterback Vince Young to a contract. No terms were announced.

Young is trying to revive a playing career that flamed out after five years with the Titans and a 2011 stint with the Eagles. Young started three games for Philly, which represents his last regular season playing experience as spells with the Bills, Packers and Browns never panned out.

Young worked out for the Roughriders in Austin last week and will be competing with several quarterbacks for playing time, including one-time NFL practice squadder G.J. Kinne and longtime CFLer Kevin Glenn.

    Vince will join the other refugees crossing the border with just a suitcase and a thin jacket in the dead of winter.

    He’ll learn under a veteran in Glenn, but should get some playing time. The Riders are in a rebuilding mode but has had a good off-season. Probably not enough to land a playoff spot but a good start nonetheless.

    “Dreamteam 2.0” Vy.

    VY is going to flame out immediately OR be the next Damon Allen. There is no in-between.

    You know what, good for him. I hope he either finds what he is looking for or he gets the demons out so he can finally move on.

    He won’t be able to read those defenses either. And he’ll have one less down to advance the chains with.

    Good luck with that Saskatchewan

    Good for him…I want to see what he’s got.

    And i give him credit…he wasnt too proud to goto the CFL and prove himself to the NFL.

    Already more likable than Tebow.

    I’ve never been a big fan but kudos to Vince for humbling himself and at least trying to restart his career. I hope it goes well for him.

    But I was told by numerous Packer fans he would be back in Green Bay???

  10. monkeesfan says: Mar 9, 2017 1:25 PM

    If Young would get his head on straight he can be an effective quarterback.

  11. milkmandanimal says: Mar 9, 2017 1:26 PM

    I’m gonna suggest that the “of CFL” part of that headline was somewhat extraneous.

    As opposed to all those non-CFL Saskatchewan professional football franchises . . .

  12. jssebastian2014 says: Mar 9, 2017 1:26 PM

    They should hire Jeff Fisher to be their QB coach.

  13. dawoger says: Mar 9, 2017 1:30 PM

    Good for him. It has to be a bitter pill for him to go to the CFL but he can always take solace in knowing he never had to stoop so low as to go to the posing hayseed stooges in minisoda.

  14. maiphatdong says: Mar 9, 2017 1:31 PM

    Roughrider lol….priceless

  15. cletuspstillwaterjr says: Mar 9, 2017 1:31 PM

    Vince better be careful. If you cry on the sidelines up there in Saskatchewan, the tears can freeze on your face.

  16. QB Film Room says: Mar 9, 2017 1:32 PM

    Good luck trying to make the team. Bryan Bennett and GJ Kinne are not That bad. and Kevin Glenn is an aging Vet. Idk man. Good luck though!

  17. brenenostler says: Mar 9, 2017 1:35 PM

    Good for him. True sign that he loves the game and will do what it takes to keep playing.

    I don’t feel bad for guy like Tebow, Brady Quinn, Josh Freeman, etc. who never get another chance. They clearly don’t love the game enough if they don’t try the CFL.

  18. unclebluck says: Mar 9, 2017 1:37 PM

    Dude played lights out winning that national championship. Too bad he could not carry it through to the pros…..

  19. tformation says: Mar 9, 2017 1:40 PM

    Hey, look at all the positive comments about Vince Young! Can’t remember the last time I’ve seen so many positive comments about VY on this site!

    I was never a fan of Vince Young or the Titans or whatever team he played on in college, but if he can return to the NFL after crushing the CFL, I will root and cheer for him… unless he’s a Packer, of course 😉

    I’m a sucker for a comeback story. Make me your fan, Vince.

  20. djvh2 says: Mar 9, 2017 1:45 PM

    I wish him well. It’d be good for him if he gets known for being a good QB instead of being known as the guy who got a 6 on his Wonderlic.

  21. elcontador67 says: Mar 9, 2017 1:47 PM

    Um …. Make Vince Canadian Again?

  22. citizenstrange says: Mar 9, 2017 2:04 PM

    Old time football? Like Bobby Lane?

  23. arcross12042004scorp15 says: Mar 9, 2017 2:07 PM

    Warren Moon, Joe Theismann and Doug Flute all took the circuitous route through Canada to become NFL QBs. Best of Luck

  24. topwonk says: Mar 9, 2017 2:08 PM

    A “Dream Team” north of the border for Vince Young. Now THAT’s news!!!

  25. thermanmerman99 says: Mar 9, 2017 2:14 PM

    Hey he went to screamin a smith’s favorite word “rough riders” , more screamin a will be talking about the CFL for the majority of his lame tv show just to use the word ” rough riders” more often to try and sound good which he isn’t in the least. Anyway I guess Texas got tired of paying him $100k a year under a fake bogus job title.

  26. RegisHawk says: Mar 9, 2017 2:18 PM

    …as opposed to Saskatchewan of NFL…good job you clarified that.

  27. breadmeatcheese says: Mar 9, 2017 2:31 PM

    i knew you would beat usc that night, vince.

    i was the only one; i told all my friends, and they said i was bonkers, but i knew.

    and then after the game george bush jr. said ” hook ’em horns” in a texas accent, because you know, he’s from an affluent neighborhood in connecticut.

    spanks for the mammaries.

    I heard they have great Cheesecake up in that part of Canada.

  30. joetoronto says: Mar 9, 2017 4:28 PM

    A bush league player for the bush league CFL, perfect.

  31. pancaketaco says: Mar 9, 2017 4:38 PM
