Kevin Glenn doesn't want to continue his CFL career with the expansion Ottawa Redblacks.

The veteran quarterback says he's asked the Redblacks to be traded.

Ottawa selected Glenn, 34, on Dec. 15 in the first round of the CFL expansion draft after compiling a 20-8 record as a starter the last two years with the Calgary Stampeders.

But on Feb. 4, Ottawa signed veteran Henry Burris to a lucrative three-year contract and immediately named him its starter.

Glenn said he originally asked the Redblacks to be released but that request was rejected.

Ottawa GM Marcel Desjardins said he's working to accommodate Glenn's wishes.

Glenn, a 13-year CFL veteran, said he believes he can be a starter in the CFL and has earned the right to at least compete for the No. 1 job with another team.
