RIDERS' RODGERS, DEMSKI GETTING NFL LOOKS

The website NFLTradeRumors.com reported Friday that the Minnesota Vikings worked out five CFL players this week including veteran Saskatchewan CB Kacy Rodgers.

Also getting a tryout with the Vikes were BC DE Craig Roh, EDM WR Brandon Zylstra, MTL CB Jonathan Mincy and EDM WR Darrel Walker.

Meanwhile CFL Insider Justin Dunk of 3DownNation.com told 620 CKRM's SportsCage on Friday that veteran Saskatchewan KR/REC Nic Demski will workout for the NFL's NY Giants later this month.

Demski - a 3-year vet from Manitoba - got into only 9 games in 2017 with the Riders due to injury. In the first half of the season, Demski caught 9 passes for 222 yards and 1 TD. 

Dunk appears weekly on the SportsCage on Four Seasons Football Friday.

There is no word on any NFL tryouts scheduled for Roughriders MVP Duron Carter however the flamboyant receiver hinted on Twitter that he has received interest from south of the border.

In other CFL News, TSN's Farhan Lalji reports the BC Lions have fired four coaches including OC Khari Jones. Read it here:

This is surprising, I thought Rogers got beat to often at critical times and Demski hardly seen the field this year.

Agreed, I’m surprised by both as well.

Guess you're not the GM you thought you were.

Meanwhile Duron waits by the phone - AGAIN. Guess the Riders are the only team that has a daycare.

I figure Kacy Rodgers was the weak link in the defense and I question whether Nic Demski is durable enough to play against grown men.
Guess that's why I'm not a GM.

and in the meantime, donkey donk continues to troll the cfl sites, including this one and spews his abusive venom towards the riders. You would think a homer like Pederson would ban this doufus from writing anything on this website.

both Demski and Rodgers are just not that good. Rodgers was the riders weakest db and if we lost him, who cares. In fact, regardless I would recommend to not try and resign this guy anyways. With Nick, he had better just sign in the cfl and take a good look in the mirror as he is average at best. I wold love to see how his head shaking shimmy shimmy move goes over in the nfl like he tries to get away with in the cfl. That move of his is weak, like a high schooler.

Demski with the NFL? I was questioning whether he was even good enough to last in the CFL.

I think people need to lay off Kacy Rodgers. I think he is very promising. He only was a second year last season. DB's get almost no stats and camera time unless they make mistakes. Just like Offensive Lineman. I think he's a very promising talent.

Rodgers is getting a look at safety, that's what he was in college. NFL teams are always looking for safeties that can cover TE's

I don't see Demski getting a look other than as a punt/kick returner

Let them go! Both Rodgers and Demski are not that great. Tough break for the Eskimos though... They just lost their two top receivers! OUCH!!!! HAHAHA! Back to the basement for the green and gold!!!
