Remember Vince Young? In 2006, he was a hot rookie doing some incredible things for the Tennessee Titans.

The 33-year-old quarterback hired agent Leigh Steinberg, who tweeted Tuesday that Young "has a dream of playing more football".

Former NFL quarterback Vince Young could be getting closer to joining the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders.

The 2005 Heisman Trophy victor and national champion from the University of Texas fell hard following a Pro Bowl rookie season in 2006 for the Tennessee Titans.

Young then returned to his alma mater where he completed his Bachelor's degree in applied learning and development. He hasn't played in a regular-season National Football League game since 2011 when he was with Philadelphia. He now works for the University of Texas promoting diversity and community engagement - but the football bug remains. He finished second in the 2005 Heisman Trophy voting to USC's Reggie Bush.

He spent the majority of his professional career with the Titans, who drafted him with the third overall pick in 2006.

Young threw for 8,964 yards with 46 touchdowns and 51 interceptions and was a Pro Bowler in 2006 and 2009.

Young has been inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame and his No. 10 has been retired by the University of Texas. He's also amassed 1,459 rushing yards with 12 touchdowns, with seven of those coming his rookie season. Tennessee was 30-17 in games in which Young played.
