The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have released Max Hall, a former starting quarterback with the CFL club.

Hall was among 11 players cut Friday by the Bombers, who had until 10 p.m. ET on Saturday to make their final roster decisions but are slated to open the regular season hosting the Toronto Argonauts on Thursday.

Hall started nine of Winnipeg's final 12 games last season, posting a 1-8 record. He was the only quarterback invited back from last years' squad, which posted a league-worst 3-15 record.
