Right now the current roster setup is:
3 QB's(nationality doesn't matter)
19 Imports(5 DI's)
42 - Also 4 non-dressed roster spots
The current roster setup gives no incentive to have a Canadian QB anywhere on the roster, my idea is to change it to:
2 QB (Nationality doesn't matter)
20 Imports(6 DI's)
42 - have 3 non-dressed roster spots and 1 extra(NI) reserved spot if there is a Canadian QB ANYWHERE on the active roster.
This means a Team could carry a Canadian QB as their 46th player without any penalty to the team roster wise, the benefit is all teams would likely carry 4 QB's(one canadian) if for nothing more then to have an extra arm in practice and an extra player who knows the playbook in case of injuries.
Now if this was implemented The second part(the reserved roster spot) would be implemented if/when Ottawa comes back as all teams will lose atleast 2 players from their rosters there wouldn't really be any direct loss of a player by the forced change to the 46th roster spot.
One problem is this gives Montreal a head-start in the advantage by having Jesse Palmer already under contract, but other teams would atleast give Canadian QB's a chance, as the main thing they need is time to develop(IMO)
