Darrell Davis: Not really a Young quarterback

Vince Young!

Have you heard? He's negotiating with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, who recently slapped the former NFL quarterback on their negotiation list. That gives the CFL team exclusive negotiating rights with Young, a former university phenom who turns 34 in May, hasn't played football since 2011 and retired in 2014 with a bad interception-to-touchdown ratio (51-to-46) after being cut by the Cleveland Browns.

Can Young still play?

Could he adapt quickly to the Canadian game?

Do he and his new super-agent, Leigh Steinberg, understand he won't be making more than $300,000 Canadian dollars per year?

It's a titillating story and it's getting suitable play in mainstream and social media.

But it makes no sense for a team that's looking for a quarterback for the future.
