Messam was one of several players released today in the first round of significant cuts by the NFL team. He now has 10 days to find another NFL team interested in signing him, or else he automatically becomes the property of the Edmonton Eskimos again. So far, Marcus Thigpen is still on the Dolphins roster !!
I didn't realize Messam's CFL contract had been inked prior to the termination of the the "option year window" provision. I think I mistakenly believed he had been released by B.C. and then signed by Edmonton, but it turns out he was traded to Edmonton by B.C. for a draft pick.[url=http://www.cbc.ca/sports/football/cfl/story/2012/08/25/sp-cfl-jerome-messam-cut-by-miami-dolphins.html]http://www.cbc.ca/sports/football/cfl/s ... phins.html[/url]
Signed in February by the Dolphins but then knee surgery 14th of May, I don't think he played for the Dolphins and probably never recovered from surgery.
Running backs are a dime a dozen in the USA.
He won't be picked up or put on a PR anywhere. I expect him back up here after Labour Day.
