Smith, Denmark, White, Hollins, Cobb, Picton, Agbaje surprising. None on practice roster either. There must be a signing of a released QB somewhere else coming up for Riders.

I always take the cuts with a grain of salt because a lot of guys end up coming back. Smith won't be one of them, but Picton likely got caught up in a numbers game and will be back. He's not the only one in that boat.

Interesting to see who the new QB is, but not disappointed to see Smith go. The kid was simply too emotional.

Who is the 3rd QB? It's a question only asked by the hillbillies.
