From Brady to Roberts and everything in between - Ed Tait

Earlier this week - roundabout the same time as another photoshopped image of Tom Brady wearing a No. 12 Tampa Bay Buccaneers jersey flashed across the television screen - yours truly began reminiscing about Charles Roberts.

First thing's first, there is no direct correlation between one of the greatest quarterbacks in National Football League history and the legendary running back of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

It's just given more time to read and more time to think these days while in isolation, the brain - at least mine - does have a tendency to wander. And that's how the visual of Brady in a Bucs uniform led to a trip down memory lane about Roberts.

Seeing Brady in colours other than the red, white and blue of the New England Patriots just seemed odd, to be honest. Just as it was during that short stint that saw Roberts in the orange and black of the B.C. Lions back in 2008 after he was traded by the Bombers.

Roberts, as Bombers fans know, began his career in Winnipeg and played all but seven of his 138 games in the Canadian Football League in blue and gold. But in 2008, just after the Labour Day Classic and increasingly frustrated by his tendency to operate on his own schedule, Roberts was shipped to B.C. for running back Joe Smith.
