    I hope this is a good thing Gi-15. Jesse needs to be somewhere that values him and his talents. Maybe this will be the spot!

    Edmonton had no standout at the RB position since Mike Pringle, he should do good, and he'll have the best QB in the league beside him, so defenses wont have to focus on him.

    Hopefully this will also open up more playing time for Tre in a dual set backfield with Cauley in Hamilton. I think Tre has more talent than Cauley; if he's treated fairly he would soon work his way up to starter.

    Don't the Eskimos have Ricky Ray at QB? I haven't been following the CFL much in the last couple years. The only other CFL QB I know of who's good is Cavillo.

    If Jesse can put together a couple full seasons and keep his career 7+ YPC average he might make a run at the NFL again! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I just realized he has a 6.3 YPC career average, but he rushed for 7.6 YPC and 6.7 YPC the last two seasons respectively. He didn't do that great in his first two seasons b/c a lot of his attention was on trying to make the NFL which of course snubbed him. That brought the caste system to my attention.

    indeed ricky ray still plays for the eskimos.

    Tre is still looking at a 3rd RB role. The cats signed Kenthon Keith to a multi-year deal late in the season last year.

    Pushing a Bobsled takes incredible power/short area explosiveness, which Lumsden undoubtedly possesses! But don't forget that Lumsden has the top-end speed too. He ran a 4.43 40 before. The guy is an incredible physical specimen, who got gypped by the NFL. [​IMG]
