OTTAWA — Quarterback Devlin (Duck) Hodges has retired, the Ottawa Redblacks announced Friday.

The six-foot-one, 210-pound Hodges appeared in four games with Ottawa last season, his first in the CFL. The 26-year-old American completed 16-of-38 passes (42.1 per cent) for 139 yards with an interception and no touchdowns.

Hodges also ran nine times for 38 yards (4.2-yard average).

Hodges signed a three-year deal with Ottawa last September after remaining on the CFL club's negotiation list for over four years.

Hodges appeared in eight games (six starts) with the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers in 2019, completing 100-of-160 passes (62.5 per cent) for 1,063 yards with five TDs and eight interceptions.

Hodges also rushed 21 times for 68 yards (3.2-yard average).
