I'm trying really hard to remember any big plays by Stewart in the AAF games but am coming up blank?  Not sure he was on the field much?  However, 6'4" 205, 24yo, looks really good on paper!!  Maybe it'll turn out the CFL field/rules work better for him.  We shall see... as we await our star receiver saviour for 2019.

Here is information on two of the above who have been officially announced by the Blue Bombers:

Blue Bombers Add Two to Roster

WINNIPEG, MB., April 29, 2019 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers announce today the club has signed international defensive backs Christian Boutte and Mike Jones.

Boutte
(5'10, 187, Nicholls State University, December 29, 1995 in Opelousas, LA.) played four seasons for the Nicholls Colonels, totalling 98 tackles, three forced fumbles and four interceptions in 43 games played. In 2018, Boutte signed with the Oakland Raiders as an undrafted free agent and also spent time with the Cleveland Browns during training camp.

Jones (5'11, 190, Temple, September 1, 1995 in Baltimore, MD) played his senior season at Temple, after starting 35 of 38 games and accumulating 114 tackles, 36 pass breakups and 11 interceptions at North Carolina Central.

Yeah, Whitehead for sure I'm expecting to get added. He was on our neg list and was reported to have had a good camp. Why he hasn't yet been added seems a bit of a surprise but there was a lot of roster activity yesterday. He may still be announced shortly?

Read some good comments about Rios and thought he'd get added. OTOH, we weren't at the mini camp so perhaps others performed even better and more consistently.

We'll know soon enough. Overall I'm wondering whether any new rookie will bump off any 2018 PR player as final changes are made getting to 75 roster today.

Once these guys sign, no NFL window until next year, or until they are released.  I would assume all these players that have signed have no NFL aspirations at this time.  There may be others that are on our neg list, unsigned, while they hold out for a sniff after the NFL draft.

Teams had to get down to 75 man rosters today. I'm not sure what the Bombers are at but they are probably at the stage where they will need to release someone if they want to sign a guy.

I think they still had 2 - 3 spots left before needing to release others. IIRC we were 3 over before releasing 20 going into mini camp. Since then we added back 15. By my rough math that left some opening.

All that said, there will be more changes before and after rookie camp. Bombers might be trying to sign players not signed during NFL UDFA acquisitions after the draft.

I thought I heard they were currently at 68.

He mentioned flexibility where to start the 7th Canadian. Is he saying that because the new CBA hasn't been completed even though both sides seemed to agree on only 5 Canadian starters?

Until it is officially in the CBA you have to assume that there will be 7 Canadian starters.
