Well that sucks but good luck to him. That said work outs won't automatically generate a contract which will meet his expectations. He may not be willing to just be a TC candidate without some up front money. If gets some guarantees then he'll likely accept an NFL deal.

Obviously that would be a significant loss for the Bombers.  1 year CFL deals for veterans is something all teams face each off season.

Having a great culture/facilities and having just won a championship will be a huge lure of getting our guys back if they come back to the CFL, but best case scenario we get these back at mid-(CFL) season.

Frick.

Best of luck my man.

Good for him, bad for us. Hopefully our scouts have identified the next Rose.

Sucks to lose him but if it's to the NFL, that's okay.

Excited to see the competition this year in TC

I'm bummed that we lost him--an incredible player--but am thrilled for him that his outstanding play had transpired into an NFL gig. His instincts of where to be to pick off the opposition's QB were spot on.

Bad for The Bombers but good for Winston Rose. Good luck to him. He's going to need it in Cincinnati.

Happy for Rose.  I think he has a legit shot of making something happen, but the competition is going to be fierce.  I'll never forget his "let's go Strevie!" on-screen hug after the GC.  Class guy who made our team a lot better.  We went from a meh DB-corps to the best in the league.

Happy for him to get this opportunity.  If it doesn't work out, there will always be a place in Winnipeg for him!
