NewsAlert: Source says Riders, agent to finalize contract for Vince Young

When Young gets to his first Roughriders practice, it will be his first time playing for a professional team since May 2014, when he was cut after going through minicamp with the Browns.

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.

He'll join a pretty lengthy list of quarterbacks under contract with the team if negotiations work out; the Roughriders, per 3 Down Nation, have Kevin Glenn, Brandon Bridge, G.J. Kinne, Bryan Bennett and Jake Waters all inked for the upcoming season as signal callers.

When Young said he missed the game of football, his sincerity shone through. He's obviously a tremendous talent, but his history of injuries can be troublesome if he's mulling an National Football League comeback.

So why did Young decide to make a comeback at age 33? "I know we have some good quarterbacks on staff".

Game of Thrones season 7 first poster teases ice vs. fire
The premiere date confirmation comes after a leak on IMDb in January which listed the release date for Season 7 as June 25, 2017. The premium network has finally revealed the season 7 premiere date. "It will be worth the wait", he said.

"I thought it was a great chance for me to finish my career how I want to finish it", Young said. He's an incredible guy. Young last played a snap with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011, perhaps most famously remembered for his ill-fated "Dream Team" comment on a club that fell far short of expectations.

College Career: He played in the 2006 Rose Bowl against USC, which is considered by some as one of the most exciting college football games ever played. "Everything is going full circle".

Derek Dennis, the CFL's top lineman past year with Calgary who signed with Saskatchewan this off-season as a free agent, tweeted "All I gotta say is don't worry about getting touched in that pocket!" He announced his retirement shortly thereafter.

Young said he regretted some of the things he did, some of the things that happened to him when he was younger. I've played this game, I know football.
