If things go like past years half or more of the former CFL player signings in the NFL don't even make it to camp or make it out of training camp or get cut into the NFL season. One thing to get signed, another to make the team longer term. That's why often these guys (especially more experienced players) want a nice up-front signing bonus to make it worth their while in case they do get cut early on. A younger player may get another shot the next season or two, but vets only get a kick at the NFL can for so long.

Bighill hung with the Saints for 17 months bouncing between the AR and the PR numerous times, eventually he got tired of insecurity and asked for his release.

Not good comparisons.  Moncrief is 6'2" and 220 and faster than Bighill or Muamba.  He played strong safety in college.  He can play more possible roles in an NFL defence, and he's only 26.

Not saying he will stick, but you can see why the Raiders are interested.

I think its funny because you obviously don't realize what a CFL SAM is. It's a DB. You comparing him to Biggie is the same as me comparing a guy like James Vaughters (going into second CFL season, ex-Calgary DE) to Bighill.

And was one of the few Bills receivers making plays in last weekend's wildcard games.  I bet he sticks for longer in the NFL.

Wow.  That's messed up when NAT Lirim thinks he can make NFL teams when Medlock (who is 10X better) knows his best bet is in the CFL.  Lirim is a valuable commodity here in the CFL.  I bet dollars to donuts he's back in the CFL soon enough.

Hey Lirim, don't show the NFL scouts the 5-kick-miss game you treated us Bomber fans to a few years back!

Medlock is not 10x better. That's just your bias.

And you never know, Maher and Long both have spent some time in the league. Medlock had his shot down there and is much older.

And yes, I'm sure the scouts will watch film from *checks notes* 5 years ago

well he was an all star last season in the east...and he punts and does kickoffs and FGs....AND Canadian.   We have chased a lot of kickers outa town until Medlock showed up.   I'm not saying he's better than Medlock but he does have an upside being a Canadian and he's gotten more consistent since leaving us.....
