Several quarterbacks who have spent time on NFL rosters were among the final cuts announced by CFL teams this weekend.
Former Giants and Titans quarterback Rusty Smith was let go by the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday, while the Winnipeg Blue Bombers parted ways with ex-Cardinals passer Max Hall on Friday. Also, the Saskatchewan Roughriders released Adam Weber, who had stints with the Buccaneers and Broncos.
While the cuts are setbacks, the players released should have a good fitness level should they try to land with other clubs in the CFL or the NFL.
In other CFL roster news, former Rams wide receiver Mardy Gilyard has landed a spot on the Montreal Alouettes’ practice roster, the club announced. Chad Johnson, the longtime NFL wideout, is a member of Montreal’s active roster.
