CFL Rights Claimed For Mayfield & Jackson

Recommended Posts

....Johnny Meatball out in the cold??................

CFL teams claim negotiating rights to Baker Mayfield, Lamar Jackson

 

  • Kevin SeifertNFL Nation

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson were among 90 players revealed Tuesday to have been claimed by Canadian Football League teams.

Both players are preparing for the NFL draft and are expected to be high selections. Neither is likely to enter the CFL. But if plans change in the coming years, Mayfield's rights belong to the Toronto Argonauts. Jackson's rights are owned by the British Columbia Lions.

Joke’s on us. Pegual can’t have two sports teams in the same city AND simultaneously sign a QB who’s rights are claimed in two different professional football leagues on the same continent.

This is the obligatory "Jackson would do amazing in the CFL" post. Even though I don't watch CFL to know how their game is different.

Means nothing,  top QB'S make about $400,000 per season.  Not sure why any QB with any talent would go there

I think you are thinking of Flutie.  Kelly played in the USFL.

Yes, but Houston was part of Canada at the time.

Missing the point guys.  He was drafted by the NFL and signed with the USFL.  These guys don't have to play in the NFL if they don't want to.  Don't know why they wouldn't but that was what I was getting at.  Similar to how Eli didn't want to play for SD and they traded him to NYG right after they drafted him.

The USFL paid a competitive wage where the CFL does not. Not even apples and oranges. It's like comparing apples to Tim, the guy up the street that ate an apple last Tuesday. 

 

And once Eli was drafted his only option to play in the NFL is play for the Chargers (had a trade not been made) or sit out a year and potentially leave a ton of money on the table by re-entering the next draft. Bo Jackson went that route. Check out how many rounds he slipped in the second draft.

No team wanted Flutie,  remember he failed in Chicago.

I understand that.  Again my point is if a guy is drafted by a team he doesn't want to play for they have other options. 

 

And Tim is a jerk.  Still owes me for the bananas I bought him.

They don't. They go there when they can't get an NFL job.

It is their master plan to sign more and more former NFL guys to then market themselves as a NFL team. Those Toronto fans would believe anything after watching Bills choke in the Rogers Center for those series games.

Hell will freeze over before someone decides to sit out the NFL in favor of the CFL. Playing in Regina defeats the purpose of refusing to go to Cleveland for example. I think most guys would rather sit at home until their team is forced to trade them before playing in the CFL.
