Breaking: The Ottawa REDBLACKS have traded QB Kevin Glenn to the BC Lions for their 5th spot 1st round pick in the 2014 CFL draft. Details to follow.
Earlier it was reported Glenn wanted a trade.
Kevin Glenn doesn’t want to continue his CFL career with the expansion Ottawa REDBLACKS.
The veteran quarterback says he’s asked the REDBLACKS to be traded. Ottawa selected Glenn, 34, on Dec. 15 in the first round of the CFL expansion draft after compiling a 20-8 record as a starter the last two years with the Calgary Stampeders.
But on Feb. 4, Ottawa signed veteran Henry Burris to a lucrative three-year contract and immediately named him its starter.
Glenn said he originally asked the REDBLACKS to be released but that request was rejected.
Ottawa GM Marcel Desjardins said he’s working to accommodate Glenn’s wishes.
Glenn, a 13-year CFL veteran, said he believes he can be a starter in the CFL and has earned the right to at least compete for the No. 1 job with another team.
Update: @MTLAlouette strade 4th and 13th overall picks to @ in exchange for 5th and 10th overall picks. #CFLDRAFT
