Marcus Ball is no longer a Toronto Argonaut.

The 26-year-old linebacker was released by the club on Monday.

The University of Memphis product has spent the last two seasons with the Argonauts where he was a part of the 2012 Grey Cup champion squad and returned interceptions for touchdowns in each season.

Last November following the Argos' loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the East final, there was some speculation that Ball would seek to sign with an NFL team, something he referred to as a "dream." Ball tweeted late on Sunday night "Bout to get/take my shot... Yall pray for me... Here we go #GETBALL" potentially referring to a move south.

Ball's release comes on the heels of the team signing of All-Star linebacker Shea Emry from the Montreal Alouettes last week.
