Quarterback John Jennings has chosen to play for Ottawa Redblacks, according to sources.
Jennings's last choice was between the Red Blacks and the Toronto Argonautes.
Jennings played in 10 matches for B. Lions in 2018 after agreeing to the restructured deal for the last non-season. He threw for 1628 yards, eight touchdowns, seven intersections, while adding 36 wears for 226 yards. But Colts in Indianapolis were still interested enough to work Jennings in December.
Jennings was not selected in the 2014 NFL project by the state of the Sagino Valley. Leaders from Kansas City, Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers invited Jennings to their respective mini-camps, but none of the franchises offered a contract.
The 26-year-old entered the CFL in 2015, moving to 2,004 yards, 15 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in eight games.
After putting the star 2016s down for 5,226 yards and 27 touchdowns and bringing the Lions into the playoffs, the Jennings 2017 numbers were down the board with only 3,639 passing yards, as he had more offsets (19) than the touchdown (16) in a disappointing season 7-11 on the left bank.
