The Al's signed Arizona Cardinals QB John Skelton see link on story below.

This will give the Al's at least four competing for the top job in Montreal with Compton, LeFevour, Marsh, now Skelton and a good rebuilt list of receivers to throw to.

You must have missed it, BIGCAT, when that "BigAL" (He's over 6'5" and around 240 lbs) signed with MTL 10 weeks ago.

I have to hand it to Jim Popp, he has the knack to find talent. Is this guy a camp arm or another washed up QB like Shawn King who attempted a comeback with the Tiger Cats. Time will tell...................

He's come in with the right attitude. Will the Als be willing to invest in him for a year or two ???

Popp's success rate lately in finding quarterbacking talent has not been that great.

I have my doubts that this find will be any better.

For a while he had Calvillo and it was hard to attract anyone else, because there was little cap room and opportunity for a new QB. I don't understand what happened with Troy Smith, who looked so good and then so bad. But not very many teams have brought in a QB who has made an impact in the first year.
