After bad fits with the Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers, ex-Alabama QB Blake Sims has found a home, for three years at least, in the wide-open Canadian Football League, where his athleticism may have a chance to shine.

Blake Sims is finally part of a team again.

The ex-Alabama quarterback has signed a three-year contract with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League, a source confirmed to AL.com.

After Weatherman58 alerted us to this, I was able to hit the Twitter machine and talk to Yahoo Canada's CFL expert (and helluva' guy) Andrew Bucholtz about Sims and the Argos.

So, there are plenty of chances here for Sims to get a few looks; either at wildcat, RB, slot -- a player with his leadership, athleticism, and in a brand of football that takes advantage of his versatility may be just the thing Sims needs to jump-start his professional career.

Best of luck to Blake Sims, and thanks again to Andrew for answering our questions on the fly.
