Laughing

As a Torontonian, I can say I know absolutely nothing about Armstead, because I and everyone else I know watches the NFL and not the CFL

Him and Nick perry were really hyped thier last year in Kiffin's defence @ USC to cause havoc. But his last year he broke down to insane amount of injuries and that ultimately lost all his draft position. He went to the CFL to gain some experience and helped my argos get the grey cup Wink .

Good signing. There was some speculation that we were going after him because of Monte Kiffin.

@ the T-dot Packer fan. Surprise your a minority. Seriously. Alot of people in Toronto watch both.

His draft stock was ruined because he had a heart attack...

I vehemently disagree. In my age group at least (20), I can literally not tell you 1 person I know who watches the CFL. The Grey Cup is another matter, everyone watched it (I didn't) only because this year Toronto was actually in it.

Considering he apparently blew every other DT away in sacks, this is a good signing if he can get more coaching and keep some play up.

Interesting, good luck to him (but not too much Razz). Great story.

No that's like 1 out of 50. Maybe he can help with some interior pass rush.
