A report came out today in the Canadian press citing that Michael Vick will not be able to play in the CFL once he is suspended by the NFL. My initial response to this article was “Duuuhhhh he’ll be in jail,” but once I whipped the sleep from my eyes, shook the remnants of my hangover off, and figured out who the girl that was sleeping my bed was I finished the article and realized that it was reporting about after he got out of jail. Apparently:
A rule approved by the CFL in the off-season bars clubs from signing players who are under suspension in the NFL. The rule was adopted in response to the Toronto Argonauts’ signing last season of running back Ricky Williams, who was serving a one-year suspension for drug use.
In a completely unrelated story that equally as few people care about, recently cut Detroit Lions first round
pick bust Charles Rogers may soon be making a trip up north. Apparently there is a bevy of teams foaming at the mouth for this once in a generation talent (Three year NFL totals: 15 GP, 36 Rec, 440 yrd, 4TD). No less than three teams are interested in the services of Rogers who plans to follow in the footsteps of players such as Lawrence Phillips, Robert Edwards, Andre Rison, and unsuccessfully use the CFL as a way to get back into the NFL. Rogers was the second overall pick in 2003 ahead fantasy draft regulars Andre Johnson, Willis McGahee, Larry Johnson, and Super Bowl choke artist Rex Grossman. That’s just about all of the CFL news I can handle for now.
