Ex-Michigan QB Tate Forcier has once again hit another snag in his attempts at a professional football career.

According to the Detroit News, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL released Forcier on Friday just weeks after his initial signing on May 14th.

Forcier appeared in only one exhibition game for the Tiger-Cats on Wednesday where he completed zero passes on four attempts.

The outlook or Forcier upon his arrival in Hamilton actually started on a good note. Once he was signed as the third stringer QB, the Tiger-Cats subsequently released quarterback Jason Boltus moving Forcier up on the depth chart.

Forcier was jettison into the Michigan starting QB role his freshman season in 2009 under then head coach Rich Rodriguez. He eventually lost his starting job to current QB Denard Robinson before leaving the University for San Jose State. Forcier would eventually leave San Jose State’s program without ever playing a down due to what was perceived to be academic problems.
