    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 surely 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.

    My god how pathetic was this team managed over the past few years?

    Our freaking HC is now a position coach. Our OC is now a position coach. Our DC is now a position coach. Rusty can't even catch on with the flippin CFL.

    Everyone knew this guy wasn't anything special. He was given a paycheck. Hopefully he was smart about his money.

    it's been bad man I have to agree. There was no accountability with munch as our HC. That was a poor decision from the start and I am glad we moved on from last season. I'd say we are at least headed in the right direction although I don't think we can go down anymore lol

    Ooh I don't know, maybe opening Rusty Auto's isn't such a great idea for his next career. His name alone should doom the dealership.
