Argos tap DeShone Kizer for neg list

Interesting move. Is he that big a name that he might pull in more fans. I don't know that much about him accept he was a 2nd round pick by Cleveland. The Browns haven't had too many good drafts going back a few years. Maybe Kizer was over rated.
Would have to replace MBT if signed IMO, unless there is a suspicion Nichols shoulder isn't ready. No guarantee there will be a 2020 season though, so it could be a mute point.

He was the QB for Notre Dame for 2 years and did well. I thought he came out a year too early. Getting drafted by the clown show that was the Browns didn't help him at all, and he's bounced around as a backup since. I think he's got the skills and abilities to be pretty good, but he needs some good coaching and some time to develop.

As to name recognition, I'd assume with the massive ND fan base that he'd draw some American eyeballs if the Argos were able to pick him up.

i'm an nd fan and he is a big guy and has wheels - he'd be great as argos pivot

I agree. I don't think any team in the NFL is looking for him beyond being a backup.

i watched mbt in 2019 and he ad awful, fumbling the ball there by not allowing argos to score a td, throwing picks to take argos out of fg range, getting sacked a lot .... he just stinks as a leader, he is great if u want to lose

Don't know if Kizer is still on the Argos radar or even still on their neg list. He has been on a couple of NFL PR's this season. Maybe he will work his way back into the League. NFL ready QB's are hard to find late in the season I would think when injuries mount. Surprised some NFL teams don't carry more than two.

Kizer was on the Argos a few months back. I don't think he is interested in playing for Toronto. Since the Argos have added Connor Cook, Kelly Bryant, Dorian Thompson-Robinson, and Grant Wells on their negotiation list.

The Argos did have Mike Perez on their list too. I think he is waiting for the XFL to re-boot. He played for the New York Guardians.

The Argos' QBs listed above are good CFL QB prospects. The Argos need depth after Nichols

That is still more than he would be likely to make in the CFL

If he doesn't play any pro ball. Kizer will go down a draft bust

Playing in the CFL will do nothing to change his status vis-a-vis the NFL draft ...

He could've signed with a CFL team to get back into the NFL. Kizer is a bust

Even **** IF **** he does decide to come north I doubt it is until he has no NFL options remaining ... meaning until after NFL TC 2021 ...

He's a bust. He will sign with XFL by then
