The Toronto Argonauts have shown an affinity for former members of the Seahawks organization this offseason, signing wide receivers Mike Williams and Reggie Williams well after their stints in Seattle came to an end.
Quarterback Josh Portis was more recently a member of the Seahawks, but he was waived last month after being arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. The Argonauts announced and Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com passed along that Portis has been added to their roster over the weekend.
Portis was actually signed by the Argonauts in March, but left the team when the Seahawks re-signed him in April. Portis spent the last two seasons with Seattle after signing with the team as an undrafted free agent, but never saw any regular season action before he was given his walking papers in May.
Portis will be battling four other quarterbacks for playing time in Toronto, which starts its season in nine days. One player who won’t be on the roster for that game is Mike Williams, who has already been sent packing after a short tints with the CFL club.
