Vince Young deserved credit for doing whatever it took to get back into football.

Vince Young began a comeback attempt this offseason by signing a contract with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL earlier this year. At the time, the team said Young would need approximately six weeks to recover because the injury was "a lot worse than we envisioned", according to Roughriders Coach and General Manager Chris Jones.

The former Tennessee Titans quarterback sustained a torn hamstring when he scrambled during a training camp workout almost two weeks ago.

Leigh Steinberg, Young's agent, announced the release Saturday on Twitter.

This comes after Young signed with the Roughriders in March. After five seasons with the Titans, beginning in 2006 when he was the Offensive Rookie and the Year and played in the Pro Bowl, he spent one season with Philadelphia. He also announced that the Roughriders had released Young.

During a star-crossed National Football League career as a first-round draft pick of the Tennessee Titans, Young dealt with bouts of immaturity.
