Excellent news for the Boatmen, that's for sure.
IT'S ALL A CONSPIRA- never mind. Good for the Argos, aside from Lulay, Ray is the best franchise QB in the league, now that doesn't mean best QB in the league but based on experience (3 Grey Cups) and what he has left to offer (34 years old) I'm willing to say he is the best franchise QB you can have. Calvillo almost done, Durant-inconsistent, Tate-Injury prone, Edmonton duo-inexperienced, Burris- Again almost done, Buck-unreliable for injuries.
Ray is the Joe Montana of the CFL.
a cerebral QB with an average arm and average mobility, yet a brilliant playmaker with a golden touch and pinpoint accuracy who wins the big game. (3 Grey Cup victories in 4 appearances)
an unspectacular quarterback who is just spectacular.
How much money is the contract worth, anyone know?
