After spending his first two years with the Montreal Alouettes after graduating from WVU, speedster Noel Devine is set to enter free-agency this week.
Injuries and fumbling difficulties marred Devine's first two seasons playing professionally, but his athleticism and quickness allowed him to be one of the top kick returners in the league last season until injuries struck.
During his two years in the league, Devine was an occasional contributor on offense as a slotback -- a HB/Slot receiver hybrid. In two seasons, he had 22 carries for 90 yards and 13 receptions for 131. He has averaged 23 yards per kick return and 9 yards on punts.
Free agency begins in the CFL at midnight on Feb. 11th. We will know soon where Devine will play next season.
His Alouette teammate, Scooter Berry, is still recovering from a season-ending knee injury he suffered a few weeks into last season. He should be ready to go when training camp begins this summer.
