3DOWNNATION: VINCE YOUNG'S RIDER STATUS STILL "UP IN THE AIR"
While at an event for Hennessey cognac this week, Vince Young made some very intriguing comments to Fox7 News regarding his future with the Riders.
“It’s still up in the air. Coach Jones just told me, ‘Hey man go get healthy, take your time, don’t try to rush back, but just know this opportunity is still here if you want to come back,'” Young says. “You never know what happens.”
“It’s a long season, so the biggest thing is, first of all with hammy’s you don’t want to rush it. I got some really good guys out here that’s getting me back where I need to be at, taking my time. It’s all about rehab.”
Young tore his hamstring during training camp with Saskatchewan. That led to his release, though it’s been reported that the Riders added him to the “retired” list and therefore still control his CFL rights.
In the clip, which runs just over two minutes, Young also addresses the Sports Illustrated article in which he slammed former coach Jeff Fisher and refers to himself in the third person twice.
