Former Appalachian State wide receiver B.J. Frazier was released by the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League Saturday.


Frazier, who played at ASU from 2006-2010, only played in one pre-season game. He caught a pass for 13 yards in Montreal's 57-20 loss against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Wednesday. Frazier was among eight players released on cut down day. Among those released was defensive back Maxwell Lemer, who played at Furman.
Frazier caught 12 passes for 131 yards for the Mountaineers last fall. He averaged nearly 11-yards-per-catch; for his career, Frazier hauled in 29 passes for 392 yards and a touchdown. He also returned 29 punts (in 2008) for 183 yards for a 6.3 average; and he had 16 kick-off returns in his career (14 of those in 2009, when CoCo Hillary was injuried) for 302 yards (an average of nearly 22 yards a return). He averaged 18,7 yards-per-return in 2009.
Also released on Saturday was former Florida quarterback Chris Leak, who was cut loose by the Saskatchewan Roughriders. In two pre-season games, Leak was 6-18 for 73 yards, including 3-8 for 52 yards in Saskatchewan's 34-6 loss against British Columbia Wednesday night.
Leak, who guided Independence High School in Charlotte to three consecutive Class 4A state championships, was a Parade Magazine All-America. and Parade's Player of the Year in 2003.
He only lost one game in his high-school career; he continued his successful run at Florida, where he guided the Gators to a Southeastern Conference championship in 2006, and the BCS National Championship in 2007. He was also named the Most Valuable Player in the BCS title game.
Leak has played professional football with the Chicago Bears (2007), Hamilton (2008), the Alouettes (2009-10) and the Roughriders (2011).
