One day into his official football comeback and Vince Young already has some interest.
On Wednesday, agent Leigh Steinberg announced that Young had signed with him and was pursuing a football comeback.
Today, Steinberg says he and his client are in talks with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL.

The Roughriders went 5-13 in 2016. Former North Carolina quarterback Darian Durant served as the team’s primary quarterback, making 15 starts. But Durant was traded to the Montreal Alouettes in January, so Saskatchewan needs to find a new QB1. Backups Brandon Bridge, Mitchell Gale and GJ Kinne are also options.
Young last played in an NFL regular season game in 2011. He officially retired in 2014.
