TORONTO — The news came through this past Friday night and for those of us that helped put together CFL.ca’s top-30 pending free agents list, it felt like like we watched a No. 1 seed go out on the opening day of March Madness.
I hope Burhham stays with the Lions. It depends on how he and Rourke (or Masoli who whoever) work together. If Rourke proves to be the quality QB promised at the end of last season, the Rourke-Burnham matchup could be dyn-o-mite.
Here's an idea; DON'T sign Masoli and just go with Rourke. Use that leftover (whatever they were going to pay Masoli) to sign BOTH Burnham and Banks. Imagine how quickly Rourke develops with the likes of Burnham, Banks, Rhymes and Whitehead as targets. Sounds downright scary.
