And the Esks are still paying Tillman for the last year of his contract as he is just a consultant to Austin.
All these players including Tavoy Moore are Tillman guys.
They have more of Tillmans fingerprints on them than Tillman's babysitter's Butt!

What they didn’t take into account was that Moore’s former head coach at Idaho State, John Zamberlin, is in his second year as linebackers coach with the Tabbies, who also brought fired Eskimos GM Eric Tillman on board as a consultant while he collects a Green and Gold paycheck for the final year of his contract.
And you can bet Tillman, during his time with the Eskimos, played a large part in Moore’s journey to Edmonton in the first place.
Not to mention all the media hype around Moore as he was unveiled early in camp as nothing but big things in a small, five-foot-six package.
So Hamilton is taking a chance on Moore instead. And a good one at that, considering they placed the Central Washington product on their one-game injured list, instead of the nine.
But wait, there is still more to the tale than a tailback named Moore.
Rumours are going around the Eskimos circles that Carson Rockhill may sign with Hamilton after being cut by the Eskimos on Saturday.
The promising offensive lineman was part of a five-player deal with Hamilton prior to free agency in February that sent starting guard Greg Wojt, linebacker Simoni Lawrence and quarterback prospect Jeremiah Masoli to the Tabbies for Rockhill and linebacker Nathan Kanya — the lone piece of the trade that could turn into a one-for-four.[/b]
