First stint with Roughriders[edit]

After being released Dominguez was signed by the Roughriders in 2003 and quickly used his size to his advantage and became a fan favourite by gaining over 1,000 yards in his first year.

New York Jets[edit]

In 2004 Dominguez signed with the New York Jets of the National Football League. He was cut at the end of training camp.

Second stint with Roughriders[edit]

In 2005, Dominguez tore ligaments in his knee and was lost for the season after two games. Dominguez runs a football camp in Saskatchewan[1] and spends his off-season in Regina with his wife Jennifer and his sons Matthew the 2nd and daughter Victoria. He won the 95th Grey Cup in the 2007 CFL season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Dominguez was released by the Roughriders on February 13, 2009, days before he was due a bonus payment and other incentives with two years remaining on his contract. Dominguez stated that he would still like to re-sign with Saskatchewan even if they are seeking a smaller contract. Sources suggested to the Regina Leader-Post that the Roughriders would like to sign him if he passes some physical tests after suffering his third knee injury of his career last season.[2]
