Marcus Grant

Grant had tryouts with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Atlanta Falcons of the NFL before coming to the CFL.  HIs first stop was in Saskatchewan who signed him as a gree agent in April of 1994, but released hm before the season started.  Grant then had a tryout with the Baltimore Stallions in 1994, but was released before playing any games for them.  Grant finally broke through into the line-up on his third attempt when the expansion Birmingham Barracudas signed him in April of 1995.  Grant had a monster year for the Barracudas, catching 84 passes for 1559 yards and 11 touchdowns to earn a Southern All-Star honour.  With the folding of the U.S. based teams, was a first round drft pick in t he dispersal draft by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.  Grant, however, could not recapture the magic with Hamilton as he caught only 18 passes in 9 games.
