Redblacks agree to terms with former Bombers QB Dominique Davis, release Drew Tate

The Ottawa Redblacks have made a change at backup quarterback.

The club announced Monday that they’ve signed former Winnipeg Blue Bomber Dominique Davis and released veteran Drew Tate.

The 28-year-old Davis spent three seasons in Winnipeg but saw limited action, appearing in 47 games but making just one start. He has thrown for 377 yards on 33 of 54 passing in his career while also carrying the ball 16 times for 66 yards. He was released by the Bombers on Feb. 1.

The 33-year-old Tate appeared in 18 games for Ottawa last season as the backup to Trevor Harris, making one start. He completed 30 passes on 43 attempts for 338 yards and three touchdowns with an interception. Tate spent eight seasons in Calgary before being traded to Ottawa in February of 2017 for a fifth-round selection in this year’s CDL Draft.
