CFL Talent Scouts are hard at work today with the first big round of NFL cuts hitting the meat market. What's on YOUR wish list? Personally I wanna new 'Stove'.
Come to Papa!!!
"The 2022 NFL season is just around the corner. Before then, however, teams must finalize their rosters, whittling them down from their offseason capacity of 90 players. All 32 clubs are first required to reach an 85-man limit by Aug. 16, then cut down to 80 players on Aug. 23. Finally, teams must finalize 53-man rosters on Aug. 30, the Tuesday after the final preseason games, in anticipation of Week 1."
Agreed ... and I expect they will try ... but unless the team is willing to put the player on their roster so they can cash some (admittedly modest) game cheques I expect most QBs, and other players for that matter, will wait to see what happens with the XFL/USFL, knowing they would still be available for the 2023 CFL training camps if nothing works out.
Well judging from the exterior of that huge building, the large deciduous trees in the background and the green shade of artificial turf beneath his feet, not to mention the colour of his hair and the plain tee shirt he's wearing... I'd have to say that the person making that trick pass is Elon Musk.
Here are some other cut players who catch my eye, and I figure CFL scouts already too, yet hopefully they are waiting to pounce on these guys if they are unclaimed or cut again.
These are some of the names after going through the first half of the rolling list via the link at the top. These are all guys with some NFL game day experience who have been around for years yet are still football young.
So the final cuts are on Tuesday 30 August, and the link at the top will run updates until late.
Now with more than half of the CFL season over with many teams already having played 11 games, I have to wonder how many more players from the NFL would be ready for even the games in days following the games over Labour Day weekend?
“Streveler, I think he’s probably had one of the greatest preseasons in the history of football,” head coach Robert Saleh said post-game. “He’s been awesome. It made the decision to go for it at the end very easy knowing that the ball was in his hands and you just knew you were going to get it.”
One of the main reasons I'm watching less and less boring NFL games every year. Used to watch almost everything available - now a pick 'n choose when I see Mahomes, Brady, Streveler, few others on the TV agenda. Don't go by NFL sideline or daytime cable shows - 99% of these guys are shilling for the NFL.
Hate whats happening to Streveler. Guy like that would be pancakes in Montreal but especially in his 2nd hometown of Winnipeg where he's more revered than most old Manitoba Premiers, Winnipeg Mayors & Police Chiefs.
