Vince Young signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders on March 11

There’s been a lot of attention around CFL team, Saskatchewan Roughriders the last few weeks.

Young joined his new team mates in Florida last month for their mini training camp.

The QB looked like a new man, having shed 20lbs in just six weeks.

He appears to have the desire to succeed in the CFL, but there are many hurdles for him between now and the Roughriders’ season opener on June 23.

CFL: The 4th Down

The football season has officially come to an end. Despite the combine, free agency and draft on the horizon it can be a long summer until we see the pigskin tossed in anger again.

But, football isn’t all about the NFL! If you want your gridiron to come sooner, then give the Canadian Football League a go!

The CFL kicks off in June and the schedule for the 2017 season was announced this week.

The 5thDownUK podcast is committed to bringing you news from the CFL throughout the season, and on our latest show we got excited about the recent schedule announcement.
