Vince Young is close to making his return to professional football.
According to TMZ, Young will soon finalize a contract to join the Canadian Football League’s Saskatchewan Roughriders and is en route to Canada to sign the contract to join the team.
“Young announced his intentions to return to the game back in February and even signed with agent Leigh Steinberg in the hopes of getting with a team.
Now, sources familiar with the situation tell us Young and the CFL team are rounding 3rd in terms of getting a deal done and all that’s left is for Vince to pick up a pen and sign on the dotted line.”
Young’s last appearance in the NFL was in 2011 with the Philadelphia Eagles. Young, 33, led Texas to a 2005 national championship win over USC in the Rose Bowl before being selected No. 3 overall by the Tennessee Titans.
