Redblacks release DB Loucheiz Purifoy

Defensive back Loucheiz Purifoy has been released by the Ottawa Redblacks.

Purifoy was signed as a free agent in February. He made 29 tackles, one interception and forced one fumble in seven games with the Redblacks.

The 25-year-old played two seasons with the B.C. Lions where he recorded 92 defensive tackles, five sacks, forced four fumbles and recorded four interceptions while playing 36 games in 2016 and 2017.

Purifoy is a versatile piece on the backend and could help other secondaries in the league.

    Try Montreal- say what you want about Reed, he’s managed the cap.

    I wonder why he was let go? He seemed to do a good job with RBs.

    A bit of a surprise, thought he was playing fairly well. Wonder who is next up? They have signed a couple of new backs a couple of weeks ago

  5. Lions should re-sign him,

      He wasn’t signed in BC again because he was disrupted in the locker room. I doubt Ed will bring him back. Great talent but issues

  6. What the hell is going on at TD Place. First Josh Johnson a few weeks ago and now Purifoy who appeared to be very solid and one of the better DBS in that secondary. To me Tindal should be gone but I guess he’s much cheaper than Purifoy. This is starting to look like a real mess….getting rid of veterans every other week smacks of panic and destroys continuity.

    Handler, it may seem like that, but the last change turned for the better. I think Purifoy is better suited at SAM, but have 2 solid guys there. Need to cut Campbell some slack, none of these moves have backfired on us. I suspect that either Baltimore or one of the new guys are the replacements. Need a more speed and cover capability at CB.Would not be surprised if more moves are coming

    Que…C Jones…eat up even more cap. Purifoy to displace a current player on the roster now for 10 days.
    Rider revolving door is squeaking loudly via the Cap!

    Actual surprise to me. This must be a cap dump?
    For sure Alouettes could use him but C Jones will beat Kavis to it!!!

    this is not a cap move, RBs don’t do that. It is performance and scheme related
