Over 50 CFL players to be in Winnipeg for CFL Week

53 players from all nine CFL franchises will be at CFL Week in Winnipeg.

Every projected starting quarterback is slated to be in the Manitoba capital, except Bo Levi Mitchell. The Stamps franchise pivot has a schedule conflict: it’s the same week as the youth football camp he runs. The camp date was set before CFL Week.

The most notable absence of all: Riders star Duron Carter.

Montreal Alouettes:

QB Josh Freeman, RB Tyrell Sutton, REC Ernest Jackson, REC Chris Williams, DL John Bowman, DL Jamaal Westerman

Ottawa Redblacks:

QB Trevor Harris, RB William Powell, REC Greg Ellingson, REC Brad Sinopoli, REC Diontae Spencer, LB Kyries Hebert

Edmonton Eskimos:

QB Mike Reilly, RB C.J. Gable, REC Derel Walker, DL Almondo Sewell, DB Aaron Grymes

    Test them all for PEDs

      Explains Duron’s absence. Can’t afford a third one.

      • 3rd what? There is a differenence between marijuana (not on the CFL drug policy) and PEDs (on the CFL drug policy)

        • greenenvy? // March 13, 2018 at 1:41 pm //

          What’s your point? If he tested postive for PED’s on top of his court appearances, what does that say to Jones about his “maturity”?Whether MJ, PED’s, or any other run ins it gets to the point he isn’t worth the trouble, something the Als decided a season & a half ago. Carter has to start making better decisions all around. You think a 3rd brain cramp, PED or not, doesn’t hurt him?

          • “Explains Duron’s absense”

            Your comment suggests that if he were to be tested at CFL Week, he would surely be caught taking a banned substance. Even though he has zero history with PEDs.

            There’s a “leap” and then there is your comment…

        Duron said he may show up at the combine in Winnipeg, he’s just checking his day planner…. Nope can’t make it, I’m busy for the next 1 – 3 years

    Is BLM still sulking/preparing for next season?

  3. CHOKEPEDERS // March 13, 2018 at 11:35 am //

    BLM is probably still in hiding after choking and blowing yet another Grey Cup!

      Bo is running his football, life skills and leadership camp for youth that week 🙂
      1 of the many charitable things he does in the city. What’s Duron doing for yours?
      By the time CFL week ends all the riders there would have spend more time in Winnipeg than they have Regina this off season. I wonder if any will bother to drop by Regina when they are so close?????

  4. Tommy Morabito // March 13, 2018 at 11:55 am //

    When is the CFL Canadian College draft ? Any mock drafts out yet ?

    • Rocky Mountain High // March 13, 2018 at 12:00 pm //

      May 3rd
      I don’t think there are any mocks yet, probably will have to wait until the combine is over.

  5. So-why re they there ?

  6. Jeff Dummy Stump // March 13, 2018 at 12:24 pm //

    Awww no BLM…little guy still crying about choking in back to back GC’s. I wouldn’t want to go to the “gap province” of Canada either…Winnipeg is the dirtiest city in this country!!

    • Whens the last time you been to Peg? Its actually pretty sweet there now. They have done some serious changes n the last 5-7 yrs. I seriously hope you’re not dissing Peg coming from SSK lol.

  7. I would do backflips if these guys would throw on some gear and run around a bit for us during our offseason time of need! Hell…if they played flag football and TSN would show it……I will even suffer through Rod Black.

    Interesting how few Canadian ‘stars’ are there; by my count (and I could be wrong on 2 or 3) there are only 4 Canadians out of 52 players. Hey says something doesn’t it? Time to revisit the Canadian roster quota. Quota’s don’t improve quality of a product or the best interests of consumers (fans).
    A Halifax franchise would be great but problematic from the Canadian content requirements.

  9. Greenenvy. Count how many comments you have made about the Riders in this thread. Its all you do. You seriously can’t help yourself. It was your FIRST comment. Its an obsession I swear. It must suck to hate something SO much that at the end of the day doesn’t even matter! Haha its actually hilarious to watch. Greenenvy and his “intelligent” little comments.

    You guys aren’t too bright are you? If you had actually read the article you’d know why BLM isn’t there. Perhaps you should scroll to the top of the article and review. If you are still confused repeat the previous step. If your mind is still blank then you can’t be helped.

    • Bleeding Green // March 13, 2018 at 11:01 pm //

      Right? Its a YOUTH football camp. Great cause. Haters gonna find any reason to hate. even if it makes them look extremely unintelligent and un-classy.

  11. Do players get paid $$$ besides airfare, meals, hotel? if yes how much? if no it just goes to show how much these guys love the game. For Wilder to leave his construction job and not get paid seems not very fair(dry humor)

  12. Should be a great week for the players, fans and the league if it is anything close to last years CFL Week.

    89 & Green – keep it up, hopefully others will follow your leadership. I’ve been to many games in Regina, most good experiences, sad to say not so much in recent years, culture is changing. Mostly the young generation. In your face in restaurants, bars, hotel and in general on the streets, if you have any clothing that represents other teams. I still have friends in Regina and will continue to visit.
