Montreal Alouettes release quarterback Rakeem Cato

Alouettes release quarterback Rakeem Cato

MONTREAL — Quarterback Rakeem Cato was released by the Montreal Alouettes on Monday.

Cato began last season as a backup to Kevin Glenn but took over the starting job in September before losing the spot to rookie Vernon Adams. His 2016 campaign was marked by spats at practice with receivers Duron Carter and Kenny Stafford, who were later released.

The 24-year-old Cato played 22 games over two seasons in Montreal. He completed 291 of 432 passes for 3,570 yards, 17 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

He would likely have dropped further down the depth chart with the Alouettes’ recent signing of veteran quarterback Darian Durant.

Also Monday, the Alouettes released little-used quarterback Shane Carden and import offensive lineman Michael Bamiro.
