Ex-Michigan football quarterback Tate Forcier released by the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Tate Forcier's professional career is roughly one month old.
And it's already hit its first speed bump.
In that game, Forcier went 0-for-4 through the air with one interception. He carried the ball once for seven yards. Two days later he was released before ever playing in an actual regular-season game.
He appeared to be the fourth quarterback on the team's depth chart, behind starter Henry Burris and reserves Quinton Porter and Dan LeFevour -- a Central Michigan product.
Forcier's Michigan career ended shortly after he was declared ineligible to compete in the Gator Bowl at the close of the 2010 season. Early that January, Michigan announced he was no longer part of the team.
After failed transfer attempts at both Miami and San Jose State, Forcier gave up his remaining collegiate eligibility to sign with Hamilton last month. And now, it appears he'll be plotting his next move.
In 2009, Forcier became just the third true freshman starting quarterback for a Michigan football team. He was eventually beat out by current Wolverine starter Denard Robinson for the top spot, and finished his Wolverine career with 2,647 passing yards, 17 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.
