No word yet on Jesse Lumsden's situation. His contract wasn't extended and he is currently in the infamous "option year" so his door for the NFL is open.

Etienne Boulay is really fast and athletic, like the NFL like them, but he miss too much tackle because he go for the big hit, well, like a lot of black player in NFL lol

Lumsden has to stay in the CFL one more year and play a "complete" healthy season and lead the league in rushing with the same sort of yards per carry to get a sniff of the NFL.

We are talking about a football nation (America) where Sam McGuffie who's high school highlights/measurables/production is more impressive than Reggie Bush's being a three star ESPN Scouts INC. player. Lumsden as a white Canadian will have to do what I aforementioned to even make an NFL roster. I do think though that maybe McGuffie can do so well in college that he will shame Rivals.com and ESPN for snubbing him.

The Bills already have a couple White safeties, so Boulay might get a fair chance. At least as fair a chance as any White Canadian defensive back will ever get in the NFL.

I hope he get a chance to be on the field in the pre-season, not just special duties, but still, that's amazing for a french canadian to sign a contract with the NFL!Hope he makes the team!!!!
Congratulation Etienne!

I'm so happy for Etienne, it's only a step, but maybe we Québecois will finally be represented well in the NFL (not just by long snappers and injury-prone black RB with unpronouncable name.) Good Luck!
