Chad Kelly has found a home to continue his football career, and it’s north of the border. He’s signed with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.

The former Ole Miss QB was acquired by the Boatmen via a trade with Edmonton in October of 2021 as a negotiation list player.

This came after the Green Bay Packers brought Kelly in for a minicamp tryout.

Kelly last appeared for an NFL team with the Indianapolis Colts after he was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the 2017 NFL Draft. Some issues off the field resulted in the end of Kelly’s time in Denver but he has flashed potential during preseason appearances.

Here’s the rest of the release from Toronto:

He had a two-year stint with Indianapolis from 2019-2020. Kelly played 4 preseason games for the Colts in 2019, including starting 2, going 54-of-73 (74%) for 583 yards and 2 touchdowns, while adding two touchdowns on the ground. The Ole Miss product (2015-2016) had one of the best seasons ever by a Rebels QB in 2015, throwing for over 4,000 yards with 31 touchdowns and rushing for more than 500 yards and 10 rushing majors.

The Buffalo native became the first Ole Miss QB to beat Alabama, LSU and Auburn in the season. Kelly started his collegiate career at Clemson in 2013 before enrolling at East Mississippi Community College in 2014. He is the nephew of Buffalo Bills legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Kelly.
