Professional career[edit]

Scott's first game in the CFL was the pre-season game against the Montreal Alouettes on June 12, 2008, where he had two receptions for 20 yards for the Argonauts. Assistant General Manager Greg Mohns was impressed with his dedication, size, and movement. "He studied the playbook and he has not made a lot of mental mistakes," Mohns said following the first game. "He has a chance to make the final roster."[1]

On May 27, 2010, Scott was released by the Toronto Argonauts. Scott was recently picked up by the Edmonton Eskimos on July 27, 2010, signing a two-year deal.[2]
