This is from the scratching post. This would be huge if he came here.
While the CFL free agent frenzy normally takes place in February, Ticat general manager Bob O'Billovich is busy trying to lock up an elite-level player this fall.
The reigning CFL Canadian player-of-the-year, defensive end Ricky Foley, was recently released by the N.Y. Jets and is currently looking for a football home.
“I would think that all things being equal – and if a team goes crazy with the money that could change things – we would be interested in Foley,? O'Billovich said today. “He's a Canadian that can start for you and the way we're using our defensive lineman, we could work him in there.?
O'Billovich has already spoken to Foley's U.S.-based agent, Paul Sheehy, and there are indications that Foley, who grew up just east of Toronto, wants to play closer to home after spending the first three years of his CFL career in B.C.
“Unless there's a huge disparity in the finances, I would expect that he would end up in Toronto or Hamilton,? O'Billovich said.
