CFL | Q. Carter calls release a joke

The Edmonton Journal reports former Montreal Allouettes QB Quincy Carter called his release Wednesday, May 24, a joke. "This is a joke, an insult," Carter said Wednesday afternoon, hours after the Canadian Football League team announced his release. "I was throwing all over the field, from either hashmark, with ease. And we were practicing in (an indoor facility), so I couldn't throw as deep as I wanted." Allouettes head coach Don Matthews said Carter's release was performance related. "Someone had to go. He was the obvious choice. He had the lowest grades." Carter also claimed he had several conversations behind closed doors with general manager Jim Popp, during which he was told he'd back up starting QB Anthony Calvillo, but Popp denied Carter's statement.
