Quinton Pointer Released


I still don't think he was our worst DB this year.

But I am not Austin.

It's quite possible that he asked to be released after his demotion off the game day roster.

Agreed but like ya say we're not Austin and don't have to make these decisions. For what it's worth I didn't think that Pointer played all that bad and from what I've seen the other rookie Lee looked worse than him as well as to some degree Ellis also although he did get a int last game. Look for Cassius Vaughan to be activated and inserted into the lineup for Sunday's game against the Stamps, just a hunch on my part , as the tinkering continues in the back end to find the right mix and formula.

Well, that didn't take long: #Argos sign DB Quinton Pointer, released by #Ticats yesterday. They play each other twice starting w/ LDC. #CFL

Pretty standard football move. They keep him for a game or two to get knowledge of our defensive playbook while he gets a couple of extra paychecks. Maybe, just maybe, they keep him longer but that's not what's going on here, I believe.
