Former Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Blake Sims found himself without a team after everything settled this summer but now, he gets another shot and we know he will make the most of it.

Sims’ brother, Hunter, as well as his agent, posted on Wednesday that Sims had signed a contract with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the Canadian Football League.

Sims went undrafted during the 2015 NFL Draft but did get a shot at mini camps with the Green Bay Packers and the Washington Redskins but ultimately didn’t receive an offer. Shortly after, he did sign a contract with the Toronto Argonauts but was cut a few short days later.

After reading’s report, this could be the chance that Sims needs with some of the trouble that the Roughriders are having. They started their season going 0-5 and some of the quarterbacks on the roster have suffered some injuries. They lost their starter Darian Durant to a season-ending injury during the opening game. Fifteen-year CFL veteran Kevin Glenn also went down to injury on Sunday and was placed on the six-game injury list.

Former Wyoming quarterback Brett Smith finished the game after Glenn’s injury and will reportedly get the start in the Roughriders next game. Former Tide player Vinnie Sunseri’s brother Tino is also on the roster.
