Quincy Carter released by Montreal Alouettes

Former Georgia and Dallas Cowboys QB Quincy Carter was released by Canadian Football League's Montreal Alouettes. This is yet another set back, well rather, another failure to his pro football career.

Quincy played 4 years at Georgia and was drafted by the Cowboys in the 2nd round of the 2001 draft. They hoped he could replace recently retired Troy Aikman. He played for the Cowboys for 3 seasons before he was released prior to the end of spring training in 2004. He was released because of speculation of a second failed drug test. He then signed w/the NY Jets and played in 7 games in 2004 but was released after that season for of all things, failed another drug test. His last game in the NFL was in week 12 of the 2004 season. He officially retired from the NFL in September of 2005.

Quincy signed with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League back this past April hoping to earn the starting QB job. But he was released based on his poor performance. Alouettes Head Coach said "Someone had to go and he was the obvious choice. He had the lowest grades". The release of Carter leaves the team with former Clemson QB, Nealon Greene, Marcus Brady and rookie Scott McBrien.

Quincy had this to say upon learning of his release,
"This is a joke ... an insult".

Good luck with your future Quincy, if only you could've stayed off the blow you could still be playing between the white lines.
