Quarterback Jared Zabransky is a professional Canadian and American football quarterback for the Edmonton Eskimos of CFL. He played his college ball at Boise State and was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Houston Texans.
As a professional player, Zabransky has never taken a regular-season game snap. Prior to the start of the 2007 season, he was released by the Texans. He was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers for the 2008 season and then released in July 2008. On 5th February, 2008, he signed a two year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers team and got waived on 2nd July. By 27 April, 2009, he signed with the Edmonton Eskimos team and won the third quarterback position behind Jason Maas and Ricky Ray.
At Boise State, Zabransky threw 58 touchdowns and 37 interceptions. He passed for 8,256 yards, completing 62.2-percent of his passes. He also rushed for 31 scores, accumulating 863 yards. The high point of his college career occurred when he led his team to an overtime victory against the Oklahoma Sooners in the 2007 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl by a score of 43-42. He was chosen as the MVP of that game.
Zabransky is undersized for a NFL signal caller. At six-foot-two and 219 pounds, he’s not quite tall enough to see passing lanes. He’s a quarterback who can make things happen while in the pocket or on the run. He shows fairly good speed and has a decent arm. But sometimes he tries to force the ball when he shouldn’t. Zabransky needs to develop more patience and has to learn to read defensive schemes more adroitly. He must also cut down on his tendency to throw interceptions.
