Riders release quarterback Kevin Glenn

One day after trading for Zach Collaros, the Saskatchewan Roughriders have released quarterback Kevin Glenn.

The 38-year-old started 17 games for the Riders last season, throwing for 4,038 yards, 25 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. But he was benched several times late in the season in favour of Canadian youngster Brandon Bridge, who re-signed with the club in December, including in the Riders East Final loss to Toronto, Glenn went 6-of-13 for 87 yards and was picked off three times.

Glenn has played 17 CFL seasons making 208 career starts. He has been a member of eight of the nine CFL teams (only Edmonton is left) suiting up for six of them. Over his career, Glenn has totalled 52,867 passing yards, 294 touchdowns and 207 interceptions with a 63.2 completion percentage.

The veteran pivot should have options around the league with teams needing experienced backups and Montreal could use a serviceable starter after Darian Durant, another former Riders quarterback, had a down season in 2017.
