An article from the CFL website on three of the CFL backups looking to take the next step.
After seeing what the Minnesota Viking had to role out as a back up QB in Webb for a playoff game I can't see the NFL not giving these guys a look as well.
Mike Reilly has gotten a tryout by Jacksonville and why not they did not have anything resembling a NFL starting QB. Quinton Porter can not be any worse than say Blaine gabbert. His age of 30 may be a deterant but there are some pretty bad back ups in the NFL of the Pocket passer Nature.
McPherson could be a great NFL back up to one of the young run option QBs he has a ton of experience compared to them and the perfect skill set to even be a starter for a team looking to go to the run option fad offense. As odd as it may seem I could see Trestman bringing McPherson to the Bears as a short yardage QB bringing that hole concept to the NFL of having a short Yardage guy. McPHerson has a ton of experience at that. McPherson also will be 30 but has a very popular skill set that is going around in the NFL that was not there 5 years ago.
It will be interesting to see if we start seeing the Graham Harrle syndrome begin to hit the NFL. For McPherson being a back up for the bears will pay him a Min of 390K.
