Zeke Moreno can make tackles, but can't stick with one CFL team.
The league's leader in tackles in two of his three seasons in the league is looking for work again after the Argonauts released the middle linebacker on Sunday. Moreno also has played for Winnipeg and Hamilton.
"There's a lot that went into this decision, and it's all about marrying the player to the system you want to play," head coach Jim Barker said. "He has had success in this league but we had to look at the overall picture."
Barker wants an aggressive defence and there have been questions about Moreno's speed in the past. Still, releasing a two-time all-star is strange, unless it was for salary cap reasons.
The Argos also announced the re-signing of cornerback Willie Middlebrooks, who became a free agent on Feb. 16. With Byron Parker already back in Double Blue, the club appears to be set at the corners.
"I want to be part of this program when it turns around," Middlebrooks said. "I feel like I can contribute to that transformation."
