He just had a 16-sack season in the CFL.

Later Kraken, it was good while you were here. Do you think this could be a sign that we trade Hardy?

For comparison's sake, he was 2nd in the CFL in sacks last year. First was Charleston Hughes, with 18.

Hall will be 29 by the start of the season, hasn't been in the NFL since 2010. Maybe he'll be our 5th pass rusher this year (Johnson/Hardy/Addison/Alexander), but I don't think this changes anything with regards to Hardy or the draft.

Agreed. It'd be great if he panned out, but there's a reason he hasn't been in the NFL in 4 years. There are some CFL success stories, but as far as impact players, they're few and far between. I do like the signing, though. Cautious optimism, as per usual.

Agreed... and this is by no means a goodbye sign to Hardy like Decoud is to godfrey.

On another note... we've got another CFL player (Gaydosh) that'll be coming back from injury. I was thinking that he might be able to do something on the team too.

Gaydosh is the player to be more excited about. Was the #1 overall pick in the CFL draft acouple years ago out of Calgary. I heard he missed all of last year with back problems or something? How did he look before the injury?

Alex Hall sacked Cam in his first preseason game. Piggy backed him for a few seconds before Cam finally fell over.

Doubt he does much but he could maybe beat Horton.

Gettlemagic in effect. That looks to be the last piece we needed. Lets get those ring sizes and call it a day.

I wouldn't speak too soon, the draft is one of the biggest pieces of the puzzle in an offseason
