"Ron has been an important member of our team since I arrived in Toronto, and we'd like to thank him for his effort and professionalism," Argonauts general manager Jim Barker said in a statement. "These kinds of football decisions are difficult but this move doesn't mean his time in Double Blue won't come again. We wish him continued success in the future."
