    James : Nice commentary in signing of Sheets. You make an interesting point in Jennings. He may follow the green. Remember, BS talks, money makes men walk !! Should be interesting how Jennings plays out .

    Murray the UCF kid will turn heads again in camp. Must stay healthy to be in the mix.

    Any news James on what the Raiders may do with Pryor ? Ford??

    James : Does Trent Edwards have a fighter’s chance of making the 53 man roster ?

    Yes, he let Wheeler go but we were still in cap hell. Different situation now.

    Watch a CFL game in real time and you will see the speed of the game is just as fast if not faster than the NFL with only 3 downs and a 20 second clock. I am a fan of both leagues and they are very comparable…in fact many players trying out for CFL teams for the first time have a hard time with the pace at first, Sheets included and he’ll say as much. CFL is a fast game, smaller DB’s to cover a larger field so they have to be quick. Sheets had a BEAST of an O-line with the Riders and always credits them with much of his success for opening the holes for him. The 2013 Riders were built to win a Championship so he had an incredible group of teammates to work with. He deserves every success!

    Lisa : Interesting commentary on CFL game and Sheets. Some players, possibly Sheets included, need time to develop and need to be placed in the right situation. Time will tell if this is Sheet time or you know what time!!
