Former FSU QB Everett Golson signed with the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
After going undrafted, Golson will commence his professional career up north. He took several shots at the NFL as a UDFA, participating in post-draft rookie mini-camps with the Colts and Eagles. Both teams passed on him. Now onward to Canada and the Ticats. The 5-foot-11, 200-pounder finished his college career having thrown for 7,628 yards (61.2% completions) with a 52/23 TD/INT ratio between Notre Dame and (after a transfer) FSU.

FSU QB Everett Golson returned to Notre Dame to participate in Thursday's Pro Day.

Golson transferred to Florida State as a graduate for the 2015 season, but the Irish did not ex-communicate him completely and he was back on the Notre Dame campus for Thursday's festivities. According to NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt, the 5-foot-11, 200-pounder "looked good throwing the ball, displaying good arm strength [during positional drills]." Golson was also a participant in athletic testing, as he did not receive an invite to February's NFL Scouting Combine. On Thursday, he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.85 seconds and 4.89 seconds while leaping 32 inches (vertical) and 9-foot-6 (broad). Golson received draft buzz during the middle of the 2014 campaign, but immense struggles with turnovers and consistency put a stop to all of that noise at the end of the season. He didn't exactly bring himself back into the loving light with the Seminoles in 2015. At this point, he should be viewed (at best) as a late-round selection on Day 3.

Florida State QB Everett Golson is "disappointed" that he was not invited to the NFL Combine.

The league will welcome 332 prospects (18 QBs) this year to Indy. Golson was omitted from the invitation list. "I mean, it is what it is," Golson told ESPN on Tuesday. "I'm disappointed. But you take what you get, and you go along with it and try to make the best of it. So that's where I am right now." In eight games for FSU last year, he threw for 1,778 yards and an 11/3 TD/INT rate. Perhaps tellingly, Golson says he hasn't received feedback from any NFL teams on his stock. "I haven't talked to anybody," he said. "Right now, my head is just down, focused, ready to go, just trying to do what I can do here to make sure I'm in the best position I'm in."

Florida State graduate QB Everett Golson has left the team because of a "personal issue" and won't play in the Peach Bowl against Houston.

Golson wasn't at the last practice the media could observe on Dec. 18. At the time, HC Jimbo Fisher said he was absent because his grandmother passed away. On Saturday, spokesperson for FSU wouldn't clarify the reason for Golson's early exit except to say it was a "personal issue." Golson previously lost the starting job to junior Sean Maguire and may have just wanted to move on early. He completed 147-of-219 passes for 1,778 yards and an 11/3 TD/INT rate in 2015. Golson will presumably now begin preparing for the draft process.

FSU QB Everett Golson was benched during the second quarter against NC State after completing 5 of 9 attempts for 52 yards, two interceptions and a fumble.

As in most cases, the turnovers were a cumulative effort, but Golson played poorly in this game. FSU's offensive line allowed plenty of pressure, and Golson's mobility was likely one factor in Jimbo Fisher naming him the starter. Still, Golson had stayed away from turning the football over this season, but his old habits returned in this contest. Sean Maguire will almost certainly starter the rest of the game, and likely beyond.

FSU announced that graduate QB Everett Golson will start against North Carolina State.

Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher says Sean Maguire’s health is not the reason for the move; Maguire reportedly is suffering from an unspecified injury. Either way, Golson gets a chance for quick redemption this weekend after Fisher benched him for Saturday's 23-13 loss to Clemson. Maguire was horrible (164 yards, no touchdowns and an interception), so Florida State will turn back to Golson. The 6-foot, 200-pound graduate has completed 67.2 percent of his passes for 1,659 yards and an 11/1 TD/INT ratio this year.

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher's indicated that he has not yet settled on whether graduate QB Everett Golson or redshirt junior QB Sean Maguire will start against NC State on Saturday.

Maguire earned the starting nod against Clemson on Saturday, but threw for just 164 yards and a touchdown in an ultimate 23-13 loss. Said HC Fisher, "Whatever our game plan is which way we’ll go with it. I feel comfortable with Sean, I feel comfortable with Everett. We’ll look at what we have to do this game to be successful." For his part, the 6-foot, 200-pound Golson's completed 67.2% of his passes for 1,659 yards and an 11/1 TD/INT ratio. Florida State wraps up the season with contests against NC State, Chattanooga and Florida.

FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher said he is "reevaluating" the QB position after Saturday's win against Syracuse.

There are a few ways to look at this. On one hand Fisher did not immediately hand the starting gig back to Everett Golson, who was out with a concussion. However, Jimbo did say he "reevaluates" every week, and has always stated the school has two good quarterbacks. Sean Maguire made a number of impressive downfield throws. There is more information to come this week, for sure.

FSU QB Everett Golson will not play against Syracuse due to lingering concussion symptoms, according to Todd McShay.

Sean Maguire will start in Golson's place. FSU will be without their top two offensive players in Golson and sophomore RB Dalvin Cook, or basically 90 percent of their offense. Syracuse might not be overly talented, but it appears FSU is looking ahead to next week's game against Clemson. This has trap game narrative written all over it.

FSU graduate QB Everett Golson completed 20-of-30 passes for 210 yards and an interception in Saturday's bonkers 22-16 loss to Georgia Tech.

Golson threw his first interception of the season, but nobody will be talking about that at the water cooler on Monday. No, nobody will be discussing that one. They'll be talking about the contest's wild ending. After Georgia Tech kicked a game-tying field goal with 1:06 remaining, Florida State moved into position for a possible 56-yard game winner by kicker Roberto Aguayo. And then, everything fell apart. The kick was blocked and subsequently scooped up by Lance Austin, who motored 78 yards to glory. Florida State was undefeated entering the contest, but their playoff hopes just took a tough beat.

Pro Football Focus' player grades indicate that FSU graduate QB Everett Golson has been an upgrade over Jameis Winston.

Sound crazy to say about a player replacing the former Heisman winner and recent No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft? It's not. Remember the bundles of interceptions Winston threw last year? Golson has zero. Total. On the season. None. Not only that, but he's PFF’s highest rated QB in the nation (108.11; almost 20 points higher than Winston’s at this point last year). Golson also ranks first in the FBS in overall accuracy percentage (84.3) and fifth in accuracy while under pressure (76.1).

When asked who deserves the credit for QB Everett Golson's improvement this season, FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher said "himself."

Specifically, Fisher praised Golson's ability to move from one system and coaching staff to another. "I think it’s one of the great attributes any athletes can have because in today’s world, as volatile as it is in the coaching world, I think it’s an attribute which is very critical to have," Fisher stated. Golson is the only FBS quarterback (who opened the season as a starter) to no turn the football over.

FSU QB Everett Golson completed 26 of 38 attempts for 372 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 41-21 win over Louisville.

Golson created so many plays for the Seminoles today. The offensive line allowed a good amount of pressure, but Golson used quickness and timing to spin away from it and hit receivers on crossing routes or outlet passes. He has yet to throw an interception and now leads the country in that category.

Louisville DC Todd Grantham said that FSU graduate QB Everett Golson's lack of turnovers has been his "biggest contribution."

"Jimbo [Fisher] and his staff have done a great job of having [Golson] understand their system, where to go with the ball, where to throw it, and he’s taken care of the football," said Grantham. The 6-foot, 200-pound graduate gunslinger's mistake-free play stands out all the more given that he threw 14 interceptions in Notre Dame's final nine games during the 2014 campaign. The offshoot of his new-found blemish-free ways is that his numbers offer little in the way of DFS upside. Golson's thrown for more than a singular touchdown just once this season. Contrast that against last year, when he threw two or more touchdowns in every game until the Notre Dame bandwagon crashed into a wall at the end of the season.

FSU QB Everett Golson has not committed a turnover this season on 170 plays.

That is the second longest streak in the country, with Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch at 182. As ESPN's Jared Shanker points out, Golson committed a turnover once out of every 25 "action" plays last season at Notre Dame. We were optimistic about Golson's fit with the Noles, and he has played quite well. The quarterback might not create as many big plays as Jameis Wiston, but one thing Jimbo Fisher prioritizes more than big gains is turnovers.
