The Stampeders have sent lineman Jesse Newman to BC for a 2011 2nd round selection in the CFL Draft and a conditional 2012 fourth-round pick. Newman left the Stamps abruptly at the beginning of the season and returned last week. In his absence the Stamps haven’t missed a beat so his departure makes little difference to the team today.
You have to think that BC got the better of this deal, assuming Newman sticks around in football. He very well could anchor that O-line for the next 15 years, assuming he sticks around.
The Stamps on the other hand may end up with an unassuming 2nd rounder for a blue chip O lineman…. But, that’s probably all they could’ve received for him anyways.
Calgary selected Nemwan in the first round (third overall) of the 2008 CFL Canadian Draft. He dressed for 30 games over his first two seasons.
