Former Texas quarterback Vince Young is going into real estate - and maybe into the CFL. He was drafted third overall by Tennessee that year and went on to become the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year and earn a Pro Bowl selection.

Calgary's Bo Levi Mitchell, the CFL's outstanding player a year ago, completed 68 per cent of his passes and had four times as many TD passes (32) than interceptions (eight). Young added he started his off-season conditioning program last month. Young was released by the Titans on July 28, 2011, and signed with the Philadelphia Eagles the following day.

The newspaper reported that Young, who hasn't played a game in the National Football League since 2011, signed a one-year contract with the Roughriders with a team option for a second season.

When asked about any similarities between Flutie and Young, Riders' head coach Chris Jones said this: "I'm not going to pigeon-hole: Vince is Vince".

So why did Young decide to make a comeback at age 33?

The former Longhorns star and NFL Pro Bowler hired Steinberg in February to assist with his return to pro football.

The Transport Minister said he has had good dialogues with family members who have come up with good proposals. But the Australian Govement has already vetoed the idea.

"I'm here to compete", Young told the media on Thursday.

From 2012 to 2014, Young was a member of the Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns where he failed to make the team's regular roster.

In 2006, Young was also named the Big 12 Athlete of the Year and in 2008 the University of Texas retired his number 10.

"We're human and we live life as well so I respect each and every last guy who plays this game". Glenn is the lowest paid starting quarterback in the league and has never played in the Grey Cup.

The list of quarterbacking candidates also includes Kevin Glenn, Brandon Bridge, G.J. Kinne and Bryan Bennett. "This was a good move for me because I still have the fire to play football".
