    NFL teams looking North

    NFL TEAMS LOOKING NORTH
    Mike Florio

    As more and more former pro football players look to continue their careers by catching on with CFL teams, we're told that NFL teams are now giving greater consideration to CFL players for potential promotion to the U.S. version of the sport.

    Some teams, per a league source, think that it makes more sense to pursue young players with CFL experience. For starters, the players get plenty of live reps in the CFL. Also, because of the gross disparity in salary structure, guys who have been making CFL money for a year or two don't quibble with an offer of the one-year minimum salary, which now starts at $275,000.

    In contrast, veteran free agents cost more money -- and college free agents are unproven.

    The targets are CFL players who have zero to three years of NFL service. At four years of NFL service and beyond, the minimum salary increases to the point that there's no benefit to looking at CFL players.

    Seems to make great finacial sense but it is still all about the best talent.

    This just in...The Whizzinator has an impressive 2 carries for 7 yards and one fumble...likely to get cut.

    this just in, you're wrong


    he'll be on the roster. ricky williams ain't getting cut with his 4 carries for 7 yards, smith did twice as good as him. he was playing on a bad ankle too. leave the bomber news to bomber fans.


    and for the record smith went 1 carrie for 6 yards and 1 carry for 1 yard. 2 carries is hardly a good way to evaluate him. plus the bombers starting RB only got 4 carries. they were testing the passing game this preseason game. he'll be on the roster, mark my words.
