Today, the Ottawa Redblacks announced that they had released 10 players from the team’s roster. This announcement came just days after the team met with free agent quarterback Nick Arbuckle. Of the playedrs cut were quarterbacks Jonathon Jennings and Will Arndt, running backs Mosses Madu and Greg Morris, receiver Seth Coate, linebackers Nicholas Boulay and Jeff Knox, DB Maurice Fleming and defensive linemen Cameron Walker.
Among the list of players was Mossis Madu. Madu, the 32 year old running back has also let Marcel Desjardins hat he will be retiring from football.
Along with the retirement for Madu and the transactions the team made, it is a strong possibility that we may be calling Nick Arbuckle an Otawa Redblack very soon. After trading for his rights a few weeks ago, the team has been making progress in signing him to a contract. Arbuckle came to Ottawa and had a visit with Marcel Desjardins to talk about what the potential contract could look like. After that visit, Marcel released 10 players which looked like he was clearing cap space for Arbuckle.
