Sports agent Leigh Steinberg, the inspiration for the movie "Jerry Maguire", tweeted on Wednesday that Young was his new client.
The agent representing former National Football League quarterback Vince Young says he's talking to the Saskatchewan Roughriders about his client playing in the CFL.
Now quarterback Vince Young may be attempting to return to football. He was the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year and made the Pro Bowl, and was selected again following the 2009 season but never fully lived up to lofty expectations.
In his first year in Tennessee, Young started 13 games and led the Titans to an 8-5 record.
A former Davey O'Brien Award victor, Young won a national championship for the Longhorns with a Rose Bowl victory he engineered over USC. He passed for 2,199 yards and 12 touchdowns and added 552 rushing yards and 7 rushing touchdowns. He threw 46 touchdowns against 51 interceptions while having up and down seasons. Whether Young has fuel in the tank or not, it will put fans in the seats if he landed somewhere.
While Young bounced around after his failed stretch with the Eagles, including opportunities with the Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns, he couldn't stick in any spot.
Young has spent the past few years working for the University of Texas as a program ambassador, reportedly for a healthy $100,000 annual salary.
