CFL Draft is for Canadians. Americans have a big tryout deal. I attended a private workout for a former player of mine for the CFL. The Atl tryout is pretty open as long as you have some form of background. From there, you eventually get a tryout up in Canada. You can only have 20 non-Canadians (QB's don't count v this #) on the roster. 7 players have to be national of the 24 starting on O and D (QB doesn't count).
Even if he has to start out in the CFL, I hope he eventually makes it to the league. He definitely would have benefited by coming back for his senior season, but you can't blame a man for trying to provide for his family. I wish the guy all the best!
there's trying to provide for your family and then there is making smart decisions. the odds of him making a team were not high, no matter what he thought? were they gonna be much better after this year? possibly, but, maybe not. I think he was better coming back and being the number 2 guy and showing more.
Was him leaving early or late going to improve his speed? Its his explosiveness that lacks bad thats y hes a FA.......he wouldnt have benefited at all the staff is big on miami speed its why Gus replaced (even though I dont agree with it)
