No. Bertrand would have played for Montreal. But when he got out of school, he wanted to remain a QB. The Als wanted to play him as a linebacker. So Bertrand did not show up for training camp. Upon his release, he went to see other clubs to get a QB job. No one wanted him as such, but Maciocia, then Eskimos offensive coordinator, told him "I really want you as a fullback, but I am willing to give you a shot at QB."
Bertrand went to Edmonton's training camp, tried at QB for a couple of days, and then got to practice as a fullback when it was clear he would not get the QB job. He stayed because it was his last option. I think he enjoys it now.
Last year, when Ray was down south and Maas was injured, Bertrand was dressed as a back-up QB for one or two games, but he did not have a rep.
