The long time fan favourite in Montreal will now be suiting up for the double blew... According to Popp and Trestman he is on schedule on his rehab and should be ready for training camp. Another aging vet to the 'Blows.

More here from TSN...

The Toronto Argonauts made a blockbuster trade Thursday, acquiring star receiver SJ Green from the Montreal Alouettes for a 2017 sixth-round draft pick and 2018 conditional draft pick.

Green had spent his entire 10-year career with the Alouettes, but missed nearly all of last season after suffering a torn ACL in the second game of the Als' season last year.

Prior to that, the 31-year-old was one of the top receivers in the league, and has 444 receptions for 6,626 yards and 42 touchdowns for his career.

“S.J. is a dynamic playmaker and a proven winner who gives our offence another weapon and brings veteran leadership to our locker room,” Argos GM Jim Popp said in a team release. “We are excited to welcome S.J. to the Argos family and look forward to seeing him in Double Blue.”

Unless that 2018 conditional pick is a first rounder, Toronto basically gave up nothing to get Green. Not sure how you call a trade like that a "blockbuster."

Everything in Toronto is blockbuster because it's the Arblows.

Don't know about 'blockbuster' label, but Green going to Toronto and teaming up with Ray is big. Very big. Big, big!

Beyond his other bona fides, Green is a Trestman guy, and having at least one veteran Trestman guy in the receiving corps will make Ray's life easier.

Maybe the Argos will take a risk on Andy Fantuz? he's still an unsigned free agent.

What, an old guy with an outrageous contract coming off a big season ending knee injury?

Fantuz signing with the Argos at some point would not surprise me one bit . Austin doesn't seem to be interested in him.

I don't think any team wants to touch him until he's finished rehab and they can look at what shape his leg is in.
