New post on Drew's blog with much more detailed info:
What the #Ticats roster moves mean (#CFL)
"Before we get to the morning's news, let's take care of some house cleaning first: here's my story from today's Spec on the lessons from the pre-season game.
Of course, those stories are already somewhat dated given the transactions this morning. Here's what they are and what I think they might mean:
The Ticats have released the following players:
IMP WR London Crawford
Crawford was injured in the last practice before the pre-season game and it basically crushed his chances. I just watched him say a couple of goodbyes to teammates, gather his locker room gear in a clear garbage bag and limp off the field. This is a hard game.
The team still has five import receivers on the bubble (Kelly, Grant, Williams, McDaniel, Watson.) Of those, two maybe three make the final roster depending on practice roster and injury.
IMP DB John Destin
IMP DB Derek Douglas
IMP DB Marcus Ezeff
This is the bloodletting following the pre-season game that saw the secondary get lit up by Argo quarterbacks Cleo Lemon and Dalton Bell. There's still a bunch of guys battling it out and Wednesday's game will likely be the deciding factor.
IMP DE David Hicks
Battle continues between Powell, Brown and Richardson for back up jobs behind Baggs and Hickman.
IMP LB Marty Mohamed
This means Brandon Denson is all but certain to be the back up middle linebacker and special teams ace, similar to the role Ike Brown played last year.
IMP OL Jason Thomas
This means Jack Julsing, Brian Simmons and Belton Johnson left competing for what is likely one starting spot and a practice roster spot.
The other interesting move is the signing of non-import kicker/punter Josh Maveety who completed 20 of 28 field goal attempts with Bishop's last season. My guess is that he's a long-term project and not an immediate threat to either Medlock or Wilbur.
Sitting out practice: DE Morice Richardson, S Dylan Barker, RB Daryl Stephenson."
