Buck Pierce is a wanted man.

The free agent quarterback is currently being sought by the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars, Carolina Panthers, Detroit Lions, San Diego Chargers and New Orleans Saints.

Oh, but that's not all.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are expected to make him an offer, a Hamilton Tiger-Cats scout is evaluating him in California and the Montreal Alouettes have also expressed interest.

Pierce was taking part in a pro day set up for players from the University of Hawaii at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA.

BC Lions coach Wally Buono called Pierce on Wednesday night to wish him well.

Pierce, 28, was released by the Lions back in March after five seasons with the team.

He had 692 completions for 8,734 passing yards and threw for 48 touchdowns in his career with B.C., adding 1,015 rushing yards and nine touchdowns himself.

The Lions were the only professional team that the California native had ever played for, but that's about to change. It's just a question of where he'll end up.
