You might have already heard this but The Washington Redskins have traded for Runningback T.J Duckett from the Atlanta in a 3 way deal that also involved Denver. As it stands now Jesse is behind 4 Runningbacks in the depth chart, Clinton Portis, Ladell Betts, Rock Cartwright and Now Duckett. So looks like this spells the end for Jesse's chances at the NFL for another year, so My question is
Does anyone see him comming to Hamilton? I hope the cats trade away he's rights to another team because The cats dont need Lumsden and Lumsden doesnt really need the cats.
washington had the opportunity to trade for a quality third down back.
portis is hurt and so is betts .... jesse may stick around a little longer, but i think once the other backs are healthy, he will be moved.
I believe he will pick up on another NFL team ... he wont be back .... I heard on Satellite radio yesterday that the Jets are very actively looking for another young back that they can groom for the future.
oh yea, trade ranek ( who has a long term deal ) and lumsden ( who would be local fav. and possible long term deal ) and keep holmes, who has no contract after this season and is clearly a rider4life....make this man GM :roll:
I will NEVER understand lumsden bashers. Here is a kid that has pretty much proven he can play CFL ball, is Canadian, and is a local guy. I don't understand why anyone would not want him on this team? He and Kahlil Hill made this team worth watching last season.
The absolute best thing to do if Jesse comes back to Hamilton would be to first trade Ranek because you could have a quality runningback and free up the Import spot at another position. Then sign him to multi-year deal and keep him here because he is worth his weight in gold, a quality Canadian runningback is hard to come by. Ranek is good yes but it is by far more intelligent to keep the Canadian around. Anyone who disagrees does not know the CFL.
Ever hear of Tim Tindale ?? Was a great university player and shunned the CFL for the NFL and was a carreer practice roster player . A waste of good talent but I guess it all comes down to money . But to sit on a roster where the best you probably do is special teams is such a waste !!!!
