Andre Jones son TJ, who has been in the NFL for 5 years and is a NAT, is looking for a place to play in the CFL. Gitter dun Walters. For those who don't remember Andre Jones he played for the Bombers in 91 or 92 and had a great season and went to the NFL. While here, he had TJ in Winnipeg making him a natural born Winnipegger and qualifies as a NAT.

I guess it will depend on the amount of money he's looking for to play in the CFL. NFL stats show 67 receptions and 860 yards total over 5 NFL seasons which doesn't jump out and say sign me. Passport helps and being born in Winnipeg might lure him towards the Bombers.

The fact though that he stuck on an active roster for 5 seasons shows he has talent, and at 27 years old..low mileage could add some real value....he also returns kicks.

I would sign this kid. He looks like he is very quick and has good hands.

I've always wondered about him. I knew he was born in Winnipeg but didn't know the story.

Dad was drafted by the Steelers in 1991, made the Bombers roster in 1992 and the following year went to the Detroit Lions where he played one season. TJ, there are two of them, was born in Winnipeg in July of 1992... guessing he didn't stay, but he gets the passport.

Agreed. He could be a hell of a ratio breaker with his versatility.

He could be but we've seen lots of receivers come out of the NFL with good / great stats and credentials. Many played for multiple seasons in the NFL but failed to adapt to the CFL.

We'll see if he signs and how he does. Just another prospect potentially at the moment. His passport won't hurt if he signs and shows well.

BC, Toronto, and Edmonton have a lot of work to do. All three teams have done just about nothing.

Not sure what they have done or not done, just aware of what they have announced...

totally agree.  Westerman, Giguere and Muamba are three guys who were all marginal NFL guys, but were National studs when they came to the CFL.

Doesn't sound like an intelligent move by the Argos.
