VANCOUVER - Kevin Glenn’s not just one of those 14-year veterans who keeps winding up on different CFL teams’ rosters from year to year.
Somehow, the league’s 10th all-time leader in passing yards (with 39,418, and counting) continues to find himself in position to make an impact on clubs.
This year, it’s with the B.C. Lions, playing in place of starting quarterback Travis Lulay, who enters the regular season on the six-game injured list as he continues to recover from off-season shoulder surgery.
It’s Glenn’s fifth different team since coming to the CFL with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2001 — sixth, if you count getting plucked in December by the expansion Ottawa Redblacks.
For the record, he doesn’t.
“Calgary never released me, they just didn’t protect me in the expansion draft,” said Glenn. “When I got picked in the draft, everybody saw the video that was put out. I was excited, my family was excited, it was a new opportunity.”
