The Toronto Argonauts signed suspended NFL wide receiver LaVon Brazill to its practice roster Wednesday.

Brazill was cut by the Indianapolis Colts last month after receiving a one-year ban from the NFL for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy for a second time. The 25-year-old was suspended the first four games of the 2013 season for what Brazill said was marijuana use.

The Ohio University product could make the move to the Argonauts’ active roster if he impresses the coaching staff in practice, with the hopes of solidifying a future in football whether that be in the NFL next season or in Canada.

Brazill spent two seasons with the Colts, recording 23 receptions for 302 yards and three touchdowns in 25 games.
