If Peter winds up here, buckle up!...
Oski Wee Wee,
Means one Amercian will be without a Job.
Thanks for the update, MacCat.
If Ticats can sign Dyakowski, he would provide much needed non-import depth at the offensive tackle position.
The Saints also released former Ticat standout, Willie Whitehead.
Willie is an Old man Now at 35
They Also Cut the Beer Man Michael Lewis,
FRIG!.. Marcel we have to get this guy. :o
Ticats look to sign huge tackle

Offensive lineman Peter Dyakowski, drafted 11th overall by Hamilton in 2006, has been released by the New Orleans Saints, and his agent has already been in contact with the Tiger-Cats.
Dyakowski, a 23-year-old Vancouver native, played at Louisiana State University and started at right offensive tackle for 13 games in 2006.
He was not drafted in the National Football League this year and signed with the Saints as a free agent but was cut on Friday.
Tiger-Cats general manager Marcel Desjardins told Sportsnet.ca on Saturday that he's had preliminary talks with Dyakowski's agent, Harold Bicknell, and received the impression that the young player is keen to join the Cats.
"It's just a question of can we agree on getting a contract done," Desjardins said. "I don't know if they've had calls from other NFL teams."
The release of Dyakowski was but a footnote for the Saints, who also announced some other player moves including the release of veteran defensive tackle Willie Whitehead, an import who led the Tiger-Cats in sacks in 1997.
For Hamilton's purposes, the release of Dyakowski is huge, literally and figuratively. He is listed at six-foot-four, 306 pounds, and if he could develop into a starter at some point in the CFL that's significant. A Canadian who can start at the right tackle position, almost exclusively manned by an import, is huge.
I wonder...if he can start right away or at some point this season would they move Peter to Guard. Especially if Cheron and/or Hudson are slowed by injuries.
On a side note I like the coverage and the article Lefko has been writing.
When Dyakowski arrives, I think it's goodbye Cheron.
Dyakowski is a VERY GOOD tackle, but doesn't have the footwork to play guard...hey, if he can play tackle, he's MORE valuable anyway!
If he doesn;t have the footwork to play guard how does he play tackle. You better footwork to play tackle.
I don't think so You'll see Jerome Davis gone.
Cheron Can play G and T Being Canadian Helps him.
Mind you I Don't think we will see Davis Go Right away.
He is not Protecting Maas's Blind Side Jonta is .
They will Cut a Canadian Some where Else at 1st
See how Dyakowski Makes the Adjustment 3 down pro Ball.
If He picks it up Quickly Davis is Toast..
If not They Wait for him to pick it up
Davis Will Start Till Dyakowski is Ready ..
We did same the thing with Travis (RIP)
so goodbye cheron then....
Dyakowski could be a safe bet to be Davis's backup for at least the first part of the season. But lets see how he does with some three down ball before we annoint him the next right side saviour.
With very good coaching like we have now young Players will develope quite fast and be game ready sooner.
just think about how fast Wayne Smith starter with our previous regime... now think about the real coaches we've got now.
LSU has had a sophisticated passing offense that utilizes plenty of shotgun formation and spread sets. Air JaMarcus was a pretty good training ground for Peter. I think with time he will do fine and begin to excel in this league.
Gotta love the Canadian depth of the last two drafts coming home to prowl.
Oski Wee Wee,
It certainly is. It looks like we will have our first three picks from the 2006 draft here, as you can see if you click here. I remember hearing after that 2006 draft, we would not get immediate help, but that the decisions made during that draft would pay off in the long run. And it looks like that may be starting to happen now. We also have Michael Roberts here, but I'm not sure of his chances of making the team. And I understand Shawn Mayne was playing for Winnipeg in last week's pre-season game. But it is good to have Gagne-Marcoux, Reid, and perhaps Dyakowski here.
Anyway, I'm also wondering if Damion Cook will be here for much longer as well.
