PORTLAND, Ore. -- Quarterback Kevin Starkey, who played with two Canadian Football League teams, has signed with the USFL's Portland Breakers, it was announced Tuesday.
Starkey, a graduate of Long Beach State, played three years in Canada, splitting time between the Ottawa Rough Riders and Montreal Concordes.
In 28 games, Starkey completed 121-of-242 passes for 1,636 yards and eight touchdowns, while giving up 20 interceptions.
He signed with the USFL's Oakland Invaders last year but did not play. He was with the Memphis Showboats until the final cut this season.
Coach Dick Coury said Starkey was not expected to play at first unless Matt Robinson and Doug Woodward were injured. Coury has been disappointed with the Breakers' recent rash of penalties and turnovers, including the 20 interceptions thrown by Robinson, who has started recently, and Woodward.
