Good signing. Hope he's ready to be a starter.
Surprising he has never been more of a starter so far. I remember when he was drafted and they touted him as the next Walby and that he would be good enough for the NFL. Not quite, but at the very least another great depth signing.
Not quite as big or boastful as Walby. An educated man with degrees galore to fall back upon. He put in serious time with NFL teams but they discovered he didn't have much in the way of 'mean intent' . . . . just a solid pass blocker that has trouble moving above average NFL DTs against their will.
In the CFL he's an above average pass blocker who can fight most CFL-quality DTs to a standoff and push around the smaller ones!
Gray gets to continue on his main career plank while getting a few years of pro football under his belt. 2 Grey Cup Rings can't hurt either!
