Former Michigan quarterback Tate Forcier is still trying to find the shoe that fits.

Since leaving Michigan at the end of the 2010 season, Forcier tried to play at Miami and San Jose State before chucking it all to turn professional and join the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League.

Unfortunately, that dream has fizzled, too.

The team announced Friday that Forcier had been released. He was competing with former Central Michigan quarterback Dan LeFevour for the third-string quarterbacking job, but apparently lost out after going 0-for-4 and throwing an interception in the Tiger-Cats' latest exhibition loss to Toronto.

So, Forcier is a free agent once again. Although he hasn't played much football in the past couple years, you have to admire his drive to stay in the game. However, after this latest cut, he might be running out of chances.

But hey, congrats to LeFevour for earning the third-string job.
