MONTREAL (AP) -- The Montreal Alouettes released Arland Bruce on Wednesday, two weeks after the receiver was fined by the Canadian Football League for Twitter comments about openly gay NFL prospect Michael Sam. Bruce misspelled the word ''gay'' in his message that urged Sam to ''man up'' and get on his knees and ''submit to God fully.'' Bruce later apologized. Bruce is three-time CFL all-star and has played on two Grey Cup championship teams in 12 seasons with Winnipeg, Toronto, Hamilton, B.C. and Montreal. Last season, the former University of Minnesota play had 64 receptions for 851 yards and five touchdowns.
