On Wednesday afternoon, as part of the CFL's iniative to engage their fans year round and keep the CFL in the news cycle, the league's teams revealed 10 names off their Negotiation Lists. Some names are familiar and we've seen before, while many are new names. With the NCAA Bowl season upon us, this is a great way to see some of the CFL's potential stars before they come to Canada.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders revealed the following names:
QB - Ian Book - Notre Dame - Will play Clemson in the Cotton Bowl (BCS Semi-Final) on December 29
QB - Joe Burrow - LSU - Will play UCF in the Fiesta Bowl on January 1st
QB - Mason Fine - North Texas - Will play Utah State in the New Mexico Bowl on December 15th
QB - Trace McSorley - Penn State (We knew this name last year) - Will play Kentucky in the Citrus Bowl on January 1st
DE - Nate Orchard - Utah - Former 2nd round NFL pick of the Cleveland Browns
RB - Terry Swanson - Toledo -
LB - David Talley - Grand Valley State
RB - Lenard Tillery - Southern
DB - Shawun Lurry - Northern Illinois (was with the Riders in 2018)
OT - Jylan Ware - Alabama State
It will be interesting to see some of these guys play in the next few weeks and if they come up to Saskatchewan in the near future.
