Kerry Joseph calling it a career

[url=] ... retirement[/url]

After a 11-year career spent with four different teams, quarterback Kerry Joseph appears to have taken his last snap.

As originally reported by Sportsnet's Arash Madani and later confirmed by Joseph on Twitter, the quarterback is expected to officially announce his retirement in the coming days.

Joseph, 40, first entered the CFL in 2003 with the Ottawa Renegades. He would spend three seasons in Ottawa before signing with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2006.

One year later, Joseph led the Roughrider to a 12-6 record, throwing for 4,002 yards, and 24 touchdowns, en-route to winning the 95th Grey Cup at Rogers Centre in Toronto.

His strong season saw him be named the league's Most Outstanding Player, becoming the first Roughriders to earn the title since Ron Lancaster in 1976.

But the ensuing off-season, Joseph was traded to the Toronto Argonauts, with who he would spend two seasons.

In 2010, Joseph joined the Eskimos and started the 2012 Eastern Semi-Final against the Argonauts.

Joseph retires with 27,491 career passing yards, 144 touchdowns, 121 interceptions and a career completion percentage of 58.6

Good solid career, but his MOP season he went up against Kevin Glenn (!?). It was the weakest MOP faceoff I can recall.

Kerry had a good run. I wonder if he is interested in Coaching? Mike O'Shea wants to hire a QB Coach. He and Kerry would be familiar with each other from their Argo days.

If the pattern continues with Saskatchewan QBs who won the grey cup, it's only a matter of time before he's head coach of the Tiger-Cats.

Thanks for the Cup Kerry, pretty nice career. :rockin:

I had the pleasure of working with Kerry in Ottawa, always a real gentleman and a good guy. He gave us lots to cheer about during his seasons with the Renegades, we needed all we could get. He retires with a good CFL career behind him. Hopefully he'll stay around the CFL in another capacity.

Always respected Kerry Joseph. An incredible athlete. A positive role model. A solid teammate. A great guy on & off the field.

I too hope to see Kerry involved in the game in some manner going forward. Whether as a coach or trainer or something. Perhaps at the professional level, but maybe more with youth since he is such a positive role model.

Little known facts ... played slotback & safety in NFL & NFL Europe before getting the opportunity to compete as a QB with the 'Gades in the CFL.

Talk about dedication & work ethic!

only used preoperly for 2 seasons.
Great when they just let him do his thing/

Good luck Kerry reporting that Kerry requested his release so he can sign/retire as a Roughrider.

I can see him back coaching soon.

Pretty good career but this was about 3 seasons too late. His career ran out of steam a while back
