Ex-USC defensive lineman Armond Armstead has finally found a suitor, signing on to play for the Canadian Football League's Toronto Argonauts, according to a report in his hometown Sacramento Bee.

Armstead was not cleared to suit up for the Trojans in 2011 after being hospitalized earlier in the year because of an unspecified medical condition. After pursuing other options for his final year of collegiate eligibility in 2012 and a semi-public bout with USC administration over the medical clearance, he then declared early for the NFL draft.

He went undrafted due to health concerns. Whether he received offers to sign as an undrafted free agent is unknown.

At one point, Armstead was considered a potential first-round selection, as a 6-foot-5, 290-pounder with speed and an ability to get to the quarterback. He's still only 21 and could have a future NFL career.

His brother, Arik, is a 6-7, 280-pound offensive tackle/defensive lineman who signed with Oregon in February to play football and basketball.
