Of all the players to ride the CFL’s quarterback carousel, nobody took more spins than Kevin Glenn.
Three times he joined the Saskatchewan Roughriders, who deployed him as a starter in 2017 and released him before his 12th CFL season.
Eight of the nine CFL teams have owned his rights; the lone holdout, the Edmonton Eskimos, may sign him before the 2018 season as a backup to Mike Reilly.
Even Reilly has ridden the carousel, getting traded from the B.C. Lions to Edmonton.
Indeed, now that Zach Collaros and James Franklin have switched teams, seven of the nine clubs have projected starting quarterbacks who began their careers elsewhere.
Only the Calgary Stampeders, with Bo Levi Mitchell, and B.C.’s Jonathan Jennings, who signed with the Lions after being rejected by Saskatchewan, are with their initial CFL teams.
It’s an amazing offseason endeavour: Watching the CFL spin its quarterback carousel and trying to guess where everyone ends up.
