A good read here on upcoming minicamp
60 seeking to impress Ticat coaches
[i]"One of those vacant positions is undoubtedly at kicker and the Ticats are expected to have at least six players at mini-camp hoping to impress Austin and new special teams co-ordinator, Dennis McKnight.
Jordan Gay, who served as a kickoff specialist for 33 games over three seasons with Buffalo Bills before being released last December, will be among them. So will Sergio Castillo, who was originally signed by the Ticats before seeing limited time with Winnipeg and Ottawa the last two seasons."[/i]
"Beyond the kicker, the Ticats will likely be looking for qualified candidates at a couple of other key spots. The departure of American starting tackle Drake Nevis via free agency has created an opening along the defensive line and the secondary will feature fierce competition for at least two and potentially three vacancies: the team currently has a whopping 22 defensive backs under contract and as many as a dozen of them could be in attendance next week."
"And while the mini-camp roster will be packed largely with unknowns there will be a few quasi-familiar faces in attendance, mostly players who still qualify as rookies because they have not yet appeared in eight CFL games.
That list likely includes defensive backs Cleshawn Page and Elroy Douglas as well receiver Brian Tyms, who played well in limited action late last season."
