RIDERS TO SIGN NORWOOD

Eric Norwood wasn't out of work long.
According to TSN's Matthew Scianitti, Norwood is set to sign with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, less than a week after being released by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Norwood suffered a season-ending knee injury last year and according to reports, won't be ready to start the season. He had seven sacks before suffering the knee injury last year.

The 27-year-old had 24 sacks in three seasons with the Tiger-Cats including a career-high 13 in 2014.

So why the hell did we sign him ? Another injury riddled player. Might as well have signed Pedersen instead.

Great pickup. Love it. He's a great end that is worth waiting for to heal up

Wow, now we're talkin !

When will he be ready?

Will he be as effective as he was before the injury?

Will be a great rotation with pressure coming from everywhere. Nice backup to Lemon ... or vice versa.

I'm sure Jones is smart enough to have a performance clause due to injury in the contract. Wake up people.

Probably got him cheap and as an insurance policy for when he heals to replace an injured player. Some method in thier madness

Great pick-up indeed! Supposed to be ready by July/August but worth waiting longer for IMO.

Norwood is a beast, what a great pickup. Once he gets his knee back to game condition (Labour Day), he'll be fresh for our playoff run.

Welcome aboard Eric

What kind of a signing bonus did he get? If he is recovering from an injury, will he even play this year and how effective will he be? Or will he retire before he gets here? Every player signed is a real gamble this year!

That's just it Hamilton fan with his wee wee.
No one ever calls the Tiger Cats. Now if you want to say who cares. Well we Rider fans care very much. That's why we are called a Nation. You see Green in every park the Riders play. We have some great D-ends much younger than Chick and for a whole lot less money. Now we have a 27 year old Dend stud that will be ready to help SK get n a roll during the most important part of the season. Nothing like rotating in fresh Dends and putting the squeeze on the competing QB.

Oh... thats news to me and the rest of Canada. Is your starting qb ready to sqeeze into his moldy green sausage suit yet?

He will probably retire in a month or so.

I wondered when we'd see this retarded Mother Goose nursery rhyme again.

Whether you like it or not, the riders have quickly become the favorite to win the 2016 Grey Cup!!!

The Riders would be better of spending this money on a running back or receiver.
