Montel Harris’ tenure with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League was the equivalent of a three-day weekend.
The former Temple tailback was released from the team Friday – two days after signing a three-year contract.
This is just another disappointment for the all-Big selection.
Harris wasn’t selected in April’s NFL draft and had unsuccessful tryouts with the Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
His inability to find a roster spot is kind of shocking, considering he rushed for a combined 4,786 yards and 39 touchdowns during his college career at Temple and Boston College. Harris had 1,054 yards and 12 touchdowns in 10 games in 2012, his lone season as an Owl. His average of 105.4 rushing yards per game led the Big East. He rushed for school and conference single-game records of 351 yards and seven touchdowns against Army on Nov. 17.
