Lol, sure and he's playing for peanuts., as opposed to not playing I guess!
Besides when the CFL starts up he can come back up here anyway if he wants.
No problem
Good luck.

To this point we have only lost PR roster players.

Almost. We lost Lawler and Hansen today. Both were potential free agents going into 2021. However, nothing says they might not be back by then. I don't know if they'll succeed with any long term NFL chances. More likely they get a chance in the XFL?

Hansen was actually released for opportunities in the German league as opposed to the NFL.  He will definitely try to return to the CFL in 2021, assuming there is a season. 

Lawler had a decent year for us, but 640 yards in the CFL is unlikely to get him his NFL shot.  Don't blame him for keeping his options open, but very good chance he will be back.

All of that is true. I wouldn't be surprised to see both back in the CFL in 2021. Could even be back in Winnipeg. Was looking forward to seeing them play this season. It wasn't meant to be.

On a side note: Kongbo was released by San Fran today. I'd sure like to see him back to help with the ratio on defense.

It was to play in Poland.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers   @Wpg_BlueBombers
Defensive back Isaiah Johnson and wide receiver Travin Dural have been released from their @CFL contracts to pursue @NFL opportunities.


- of the 7 rookies released so far only Kenney was with the Bombers last season. He was signed to the practice roster on Sept 24th and was never added to the active roster.

The Bombers announced the Hansen and Lawler releases on twitter last night. They should be listed on the CFL transactions page when the CFL updates it in the next hour or so.

It's not unusual for players to go to the NFL if they can.  Who wants to be a career CFLer?
