TORONTO — Taylor Loffler took to his Instagram account on Tuesday night to announce his retirement from professional football.

Loffler became a free agent in February but did not sign with a team this off-season.
He spent four seasons in the CFL, playing for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Montreal Alouettes during that time. The 29-year-old appeared in six games for the Alouettes during the 2019 season, posting 27 tackles, one interception and a forced fumble.
The Kelowna, BC native was named a West Division and CFL All-Star three times (2016-2018) and also has a Vanier Cup championship to his name after transferring to UBC from Boise State in 2015.
“I want to thank the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for giving me a chance even with my prior medical record,” he continued in the caption. “For the Montreal Alouettes for giving me the chance to play out East. Also, a huge thanks to my teammates who made it a blast to come into practice everyday and the fans who supported rain and shine!”
