A comment and and an open question for ball-carrying backs with solid hands and average blocking skills going beyond either of those guys whom I feel are finished for the CFL let alone unwise to bring in for the Argos ...this does not pertain to fullbacks who are overwhelmingly numerous all the same:
Plenty of low mileage free agent selection from which to choose with agility and speed ...why not work the market for a guy standing no more than 5-11 and weighing no more than 215 with such spec's? You could go up to about 225 at any height, but the odds of feature play go way, way down for the bigger backs at 230 or more in any gridiron league for sake of a ball carrier. Mind you that you won't find such a back free now without some flaw, as the choicest have been picked up by the NFL or are on other CFL teams, but so long as he's not a fumbler and has some basic blocking skills that's a start.
After the initial training camp cuts in the NFL in August, and as I am a somewhat new CFL fan with this my first pre-season, even though it is about six weeks into the CFL season why wouldn't the Argos just look forward to August to shop the market for such guys who have low odds to get another NFL job as well? At least those guys are in game shape though they have to adjust to a new playbook. Or historically for sake of the CFL how has that strategy worked in the past or not?
