Cut breakdowns

  • Danny Collins, the former Maine quarterback was entering his third season in plaid while a Quarterback Carousel took place during camp. This off-season, Ottawa lost their starting QB, Trevor Harris and got Jonathan Jennings to fight the starting job with Dominique Davis. While the two fought for the #1 and #2 spot, there was a mild competition between Danny Collins and Will Arndt for the 3rd spot on the chart. Once camp ended, Will Arndt threw for over 300 combined yards on 23 completions, winning the spot over Danny Collins who threw for 137 yards on 13 completions.
  • Ironhead Gallon, the 25 year old DB entering his rookie year of his CFL career had an outstanding camp. He started his CFL career in a preseason game vs Hamilton, where he had 7 defensive tackles and was the defensive player of the game. The next week in Montreal he got one tackle, and bad news. The former Georgia Southern athlete, suffered a torn Achilles in the first half of his second preseason game.
