3 CFL players the Titans should sign before the New England Patriots can
By Will Lomas
CFL signings for the Tennessee Titans.
The CFL is the only football league that has stood the test of time opposite the NFL, and for good reason.
It isn’t the same product, but the CFL has good talent and they know how to make games enjoyable without gimmicks and without moving too far away from what football should be.
To that end, it is sad to see that the CFL is going to have to take a break in 2020 thanks to the pandemic. That doesn’t mean that those players will miss out on a year of their career though.
This opens the door for an NFL team to look at the best of the best in the CFL and consider giving them a shot on the roster in their “gap year”. To me, that sounds exactly like something Bill Belichick would do to make the most out of a bad situation.
With that in mind, I wanted to take a look at which players in the CFL stand out and why the Titans may want to pounce on certain ones before other contenders make the first move. Remember, this is a year where you can have 16 players on the practice squad, and it is a practice squad where everyone is eligible and where you can protect a handful of players.
So which CFL players stand out as future Titans?
