The Dallas Cowboys elected not to re-sign free agent running back Tyson Thompson this season. For the past three years he's been a kick returner and backup RB. As far as I know, no NFL team has picked him up. He's a perfect fit for the CFL: superfast and he's got some size(6'1"/215 lbs.) When given a chance, he's done well for the Cowboys. Broke his leg last season and I guess he fell out of favor. Still, he's one hell of a ballplayer. He was also signed by Parcells, not Phillips, so probably not Phillips type of player. At any rate, the shape Winnipeg's in, they ought to give him a try.
I'm a huge fan of Blink and I believe he's still on top of his game but he's got to get in open field to do any damage. To do his thing, he's got to have a hole, or at least some kind of seam and he ain't gettin' any! His dobber's down right now, the line's collective dobbers are down; give somebody else a shot! Maybe somebody will block for a new RB.
