Another "LUCKY", hopefully he will be as good as our first Lucky.

Our first Lucky was better after he left.

Another good signing.  Can he run routes, learn our game and catch in traffic.  We shall see.

Mostly a function of being paired with 'slinger Reilly and Burnham taking all the double-teams.  It was actually brilliant, really.  But not enough to save their season.

I think him & Nunn have a good chance to take the 3rd American WR spot.
If they don't win a spot outright, I hope at least 1 takes a PR spot.

I am very interested in Dalton Schoen. Like his speed and size.

Hard to tell how imports adjust to the CFL game. Wider and longer field, yard off the ball etc. Could be players that adjust quickly or need to spend time on PR. I'd think Saunders is pencilled in on the 45 man roster at the moment although he could end up as a veteran DI.

Also expect another 3 - 4 receivers signed before TC and that might cause somebody to be released to make room.
