ELGAARD ON THE 2017 RIDERS: "IT'S INTERESTING"
The Hall of Fame receiver also spent some time discussing the biggest off-season move for his old team in Saskatchewan.
"I think it's interesting," Elgaard said. "I was thinking about the Vince Young thing and it reminded me of back in the day when the Riders signed Tony Rice (in 1990). With all due respect to Tony, he didn't have the toolbox to succeed in the CFL but it was great from a media standpoint. That was back in the day when the Roughriders were craving some good media attention but it wound up backfiring a bit.
"Vince Young, I remember watching him in college with Texas and he was a frickin' stud. What is he? 33? He's not that old. I mean I don't know the guy from Adam but he's definitely got the skills to be a top-flight CFL quarterback if he's interested in being that.
"So I thought it was interesting. I thought it was an interesting move and I hope it works out for the team."
