Troy Smith Signs With Montreal Alouettes

Former Ohio State Quarterback Troy Smith has signed with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League:

“We welcome Troy to the Alouettes. We’ve been in discussions together for well over three months and have been patiently waiting for Troy to finish his commitments at Ohio State,” explained Alouettes General Manager Jim Popp. “We’ll have to fast track Troy in order to get him over the learning curve of the CFL and caught up to speed over the next several weeks. He’s here to learn and grasp the game for future competition.”

I haven’t watched much Canadian Football, so I don’t claim to be an expert in all things CFL, but the rules and speed of the game should suit the former Heisman Trophy winner just fine.

Troy, to me, will always be a HUGE what-if situation with regards to his NFL career. He was one weird illness away from assuming the starting job as the starting quarterback with the Baltimore Ravens. That illness opened the door for Joe Flacco to grab the starting role. We all know how that ends.

So good luck to Troy in this next stage of his career.
