A CFLer has inked a multi-year deal with a NFL team. This type of news makes my day. The CFL is considered a backwater in football circles. Many college athletes won’t even consider coming north of the border if their NFL dreams have been dashed.
The CFL is different, there is no doubt. But, it is entertaining and it is home to some very talented players. Their talent is often overlooked because of the league they participate in. That’s why when players like Warren Moon, Doug Flutie, Jeff Garcia, Dave Dickenson, Stefan Logan, and now, Adam Bighill make it into the “League,” I celebrate.
It’s an uphill journey and they’ve made it. Congratulations Adam, you’ve earned it!
