The Boulay's release is quite surprising. But this will mark an end of what has been a 12-month rollercoaster ride for the local product.
In 2011, he went from being groomed in taking over the safety position once Matthieu Proulx retired, to suffering a concussion against the Saskatchewan Roughriders that resulted in him missing the rest of the season.
The Ferri news does not come as a surprise considering all throughout the offseason there were whispers about his future with the organization after general manager Jim Popp signed Rod Davis, and Mark Restelli.
Furthermore, with the ascension of second year linebacker Bear Woods into the current rotation it seemed that Ferri was on borrowed time. Finally with his transition back to his old safety position it could have signalled that the end was near if he wasn't able to make as a defensive back.
However, until all of training camp is completed, and potential injuries that could happen in the next two weeks, both of them will have to wait patiently by the phone for another chance in the CFL.
