Argonauts Sign Canadian QB

(Russ Jackson)

The Toronto Argonauts signing of Queen’s quarterback Danny Brannagan to a contract is understandably being treated as great news by CFL fans. The league has not seen a starting Canadian QB since Russ Jackson (although Gerry Datillio had a brief run with the Als in the late 70s) over 40 years ago. As the Argos are at ground zero for QB’s after the release of Kerry Joseph and Cody Pickett there could be no better time than now to offer this young man the opportunity. The move is to be applauded.

Brannagan led the Queen’s Gaels to their first Vanier Cup Championship since 1992, earning the Most Valuable Player and Yates Cup MVP honours along the way.
A potential incentive for retaining third string Canadian quarterbacks (thus giving him time to learn the ropes) could be that it would not count against the salary cap.Hopefully Brannagan can start in the 100th Grey Cup in Toronto in 2012.
