Dexter McCoil, makes Charger team, is a team star player. Had a pick 6 the other night. HIGHLY VALUE PLAYER.
Walker and Grimes did not make rooster. But COULD go practice rooster or try out with another team. Walker will most likely be available.
Here's a partial list on this site, and add the news on Grymes (destination unknown) and McCoil (made the Chargers) from prior posts below:
So far McCoil is the only player with CFL experience in 2016 who made an NFL roster. Those sure are some seriously long odds for the CFL players going for it in the NFL, but hey I can't fault a man for fighting for his dream.
The bottom line is I think we'll be seeing most of these players back in the CFL.
After a feature on TSN about Bighill and what an awesome game he played the other night with 7 tackles a QB sack, likely makes the teams, the coaches impressed etc…he is released?
Just shows the depth that NFL teams have. But there is a chance he could hang around the practice roster.
We can also hope for sake of Bighill's ambition that other teams watched his tape, and it takes only one of them to pull him away from the practice squad for New Orleans onto the other team's roster without the need for a release or trade.
Being reported now that Walker had continued the contract talks as of yesterday with Edmonton and Toronto. He apparently is on his way to Edmonton to sign a contract. The Eskimos are hoping he gets there quick as there were discussions with another NFL team to sign him to the PR but a report is now confirming Walker does not want to be on a PR and is highly interested in signing a deal with the Eskimos.
Great news for Edmonton. Will make the CFL West playoff race that more exciting.
