    Limas Sweed now on a CFL practice squad

    Not sure if this has been posted or not.

    In response to his pleas, an officer said: "You think we've never arrested somebody that's made national media? ... We deal with the Bengals all the time."

    I wonder if they signed him to the practice squad after putting Dallas Baker the Touchdown Maker on injured reserve?

    2 Byron Jones CB UConn
    3 David Johnson RB N Iowa
    4 Lyndon Trail OLB Norfolk St
    5 Nick Marshall CB Auburn
    6 Blake Bell TE Oklahoma
    7 Travis Raciti DE San Jose St

    Trade down w/ JAX:

    2 Maxx Williams TE Minnesota
    2 Nate Orchard OLB Utah
    3 Laken Tomlinson OG Duke
    3 Jaquiski Tartt SS Samford
    4 Ronald Darby CB Florida St
    5 Kurtis Drummond FS Michigan St
    6 Cam Thomas CB W Kentucky
    7 Malcolm Brown RB Texas

    Awesome, he can suck and drop passes up north now. Super. Is Willie Reid, Dallas Baker, Fred Gibson, Lee Mays, Chris Taylor, Danny Farmer, Troy Edwards and Will Blackwell going to join him?

    I think we should sign him quick before the Ratbirds do.


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    As I mentioned in the previous post, Dallas Baker is already on that team (although he is on injured reserve). They also have cornerback Macho Harris, who was in training camp with us before last season.

    Mid-November in Regina? That's a pretty good bet that's the one thing he could certainly catch.

    Anyone else crack up about how they list players as import or non-import? I never realized Canadians think of Americans like we think of immigrants.

    The CFL has a rule that a minimum number of players on the team must be Canadian. Lacrosse in the US is the opposite where there is a Maximum number of Canadians you can field on a particular team.

    Also, I hope Sweed makes the team there. He seems like a good enough kid, maybe not the best receiver around, but I certainly wish him well.
