After suffering an injury in his first pro training camp, the #Bombers have brought back National receiver and 2018 41st-overall draft pick Tyrone Pierre, and added him to their practice roster.

This is an interesting signing.  4 seasons with Laval and only had 13 rec. for 122 yards in 8 games.  I wonder what his other credentials are.

He has been around since Training Camp. Looked very good before he got nicked. We are stacked at NAT receiver.

Not saying he is not good, just wondering what led us to signing him in the first place.... not much to show in college.

probably the same things that led us to drafting him a couple of months ago... just a guess though...

That is what I was asking.  When I said "in the first place", I meant the first time we signed him.  Not today.

lol, my bad... I'm assuming that he had a better statistical year his junior year, plus he's Canadian?

here's what cfl.ca had to say about him...

"While there are other higher-profile receivers in this year?s draft, Pierre?s athleticism could make him a target in the first few rounds on draft day. A former basketball player, Pierre transitioned to football at a relatively young age and the move paid off.

?Pierre is a dynamic pass-catcher with room to improve in route running and decision-making, but his frame and play style is reminiscent of current Alouettes pass-catcher George Johnson,? said CFL.ca draft analyst Marshall Ferguson.

Pierre?s eagerness to play special teams should also help his draft stock in the eyes of scouts. The athleticism, meanwhile, shows the upside for more down the road."

Thanks.

no problem... I couldn't find any college statistical info other than for his senior year, which I find odd... so, I'm not sure what he did performance wise...

I'm not surprised. IMO sadly USports are poorly covered up here.

Spoke to Gaitor and Washington and both said will play next week, what do others think?

Also any change of Flanders coming in.  Lankford was ok  but also not a good as required.
