700 cuts in the NFL after reducing to 53 from 75 players. Previously cut down from 90 to 75. That makes the total cuts about 1200 players.  300 of those will end up on PR's across the NFL.

So which ex CFL players made the initial 53 man rosters? Which of those cut likely to end up on PR's?

So a pool of 900 players more or less available. Some may end up on IR's, some will retire.

Interesting list. It shows how difficult it is for even talented CFL players to stick in the NFL.  There are a few players I'd like to have. Laing in particular.

"Mulumba, Smith, and Boyko?s CFL rights are owned by the Bombers, Eskimos, and Lions, respectively. All were top-15 CFL draft picks and all project as starters north of the border. Smith is expected to join Indianapolis? practice roster, while Boyko, who spent last season on Philadelphia?s practice roster, may take on the same role in San Diego. Mulumba has exhausted his practice roster eligibility, meaning it is likely he will sign with Winnipeg unless he is able to land a spot on a 53-man roster with another NFL club."

Interesting stuff on Mulumba.

If you're referring to the point where it says that Mulumba has no choice but to sign with Winniepg, remember this is just some random fan writing.

I have no reason to doubt what is written but like anything there could be errors:

1) if the statement about pr eligibility is true then the chances of him making the 53 man roster is slim - that limits the NFL option

2) we own his CFL rights so unless we trade them if he wants to play in the CFL it is with winnipeg.


Of course he could opt for being done with football...

Of course his opinion could've changed in four years, but I remember when he was drafted, Mulumba said he wanted to have a long pro career and he'd have no problem with it being in Winnipeg.

Some suggestion on CFL.CA that the Ticats are trying to re-sign Sinkfield. I guess we'll see if he returns to the CFL and if so to which team. Ticats are likely an early favorite for him but salary expectations and how that fits into a teams ability and need could change that.

Not as easy to fit in a higher salary at this point of the season. Possible but might eliminate some teams.
