Great move Ottawa, getting Harris in the fold. Burris to Harris transition year. Who wouldn't want that tandem.

Ottawa WON ... Toronto ZERO

Yeah, I'm kind of eager for that to be made official


Just saw a quick clip on Twitter from Desjardin officially welcoming Harris to the team. What a great pick up.
Also saw that Jovon may be heading to Montreal. He also posted a comment in the past tense with regards to playing in Ottawa.


Looks like that's done too. Kind of too bad but it's not like he was going to be here for another half decade.

Have not heard a thing about Brandyn Thompson. Good young player. Hope (for us) he's flying under the radar and signs back.

Exactly what I'm hoping for. That would be a win for us.

DeMarco, Thomas
Green, James
Henry, Marcus
Marshall, Andrew
Smith, Marlon
Thompson, Brandyn
Verdone, Jordan


Think we're getting any of these guys back?

Marcus Henry drove me nuts in 2014 with all the drops and what not, but I look at Toronto's young receivers from last year...They all did pretty great under Elizondo's guidance. Henry isn't really in a position to demand high $$. Maybe getting him back wouldn't be the worst thing.

Thompson's the only other guy I care about.

Looks like Andrew Marshall is back.

If special teams aren't any better in 2016 I'm going to kill myself.

Tim Baines mentioned on Twitter last night that Brandyn Thompson isn't even sure he wants to return to the CFL. Hoping for an NFL opportunity but unsure about whether he want to continue in the CLF regardless due to the exchange rate.

Thanks a lot, Justin! :wink:
