Kerry Tremaine Joseph[1] (born October 4, 1973) is a quarterback playing for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. He was born in New Iberia, Louisiana.

Joseph was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Player in 2007 while leading the Saskatchewan Roughriders to victory in the 95th Grey Cup. At the end of the season he had completed 267 of 459 passes for 4002 yards and 24 touchdowns. He also led all quarterbacks in the league in rushing with 737 yards on 90 attempts and 13 touchdowns. On March 5, 2008, the Roughriders traded him to the Argonauts.

Athletic history

In college Joseph played quarterback for McNeese State University, leading his team to a 42-11 record and two Southland Conference titles during four seasons as a starter. He subsequently attended the training camp for the Cincinnati Bengals of the NFL in 1996, played with the London Monarchs of NFL Europe in 1997, tried out as a slotback for the Washington Redskins in 1998 but played for the Rhein Fire of NFL Europe where he won the World Bowl. He then was picked up by the Seattle Seahawks where he played safety for four years until being released in 2002.

Joseph then headed to Canada to try his luck at finally playing quarterback as a professional. He was acquired as a free agent by the Ottawa Renegades in 2003 and during that season unseated incumbent Dan Crowley for the starting job. In the last game of the 2005 season, a victory over the division-leading Toronto Argonauts, Joseph became only the third (after Damon Allen and Tracy Ham) quarterback in Canadian Football League history to garner over 1000 rushing yards in a single season, finishing with 1006.

The Renegades suspended operations, but on April 12, 2006, Kerry Joseph was selected first overall by Saskatchewan in the Ottawa Renegades dispersal draft.

On November 25, 2007, Joseph won the Grey Cup for the first time in his career, winning 23-19 over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. On November 29, 2007, he was announced as the first ever CFLPA Pro Player of the Year after fan voting during Grey Cup week. [2]

Kerry Joseph was traded from the Saskatchewan Roughriders to the Toronto Argonauts on March 5, 2008, along with 2010 third round draft pick in exchange for offensive tackle Glenn January, defensive lineman Ronald Flemons, the Argos' 2008 first-round pick and a 2010 second-round selection.

After being traded to the Argo's, Joseph struggled with the team and continues to struggle after being knocked out of the playoffs for the second straight year.
