In addition to the free agent signing of offensive tackle and 2006 Ticat draft choice Peter Dyakowski by the New Orleans Saints, there have been at least two more signings of Canadian players by NFL teams:
Patrick MacDonald (6'3", 247 lbs, Feb 20/82), a defensive lineman and long snapper who played for University of Alberta in 2006 and is eligible for tomorrow's CFL Canadian Draft, has signed with the New Orleans Saints to compete for the long snapping job. It is quite fascinating that MacDonald was not even mentioned in fan and media discussions about this year's CFL Draft. Maybe the Ticats should consider taking him as a mid to late round pick tomorrow as he could become their long snapper at some point in the future if he is released by the Saints;
Clifton Dawson, a running back who played for Harvard in 2006 and was chosen by the Argos in last year's CFL Canadian Draft, has signed with the Indianapolis Colts.
