The Jacksonville Jaguars worked out quarterback Mike Reilly on Friday, per NFL sources.

Scott Milanovich, the former Toronto Argonauts’ Grey Cup-winning head coach and the 2012 CFL coach of the year,  joined the Jags as quarterbacks coach in January 2017 and was elevated to offensive coordinator in November.
Reilly has thrown for over 5,000 yards in three straight CFL seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos. The 33-year-old threw for a career-high 5,830 yards and 30 touchdowns in 2017,  earning the CFL most outstanding player award.
Back in 2015, Reilly led the Eskimos to a Grey Cup championship and earned CFL title game MVP honours. Reilly was originally acquired by the Eskimos in January 2013 when then-general manager Ed Hervey sent two second-round draft picks (2013 and 2014) to B.C. for the QB and the Lions’ second-round selection in 2013.

Well, well! This is a twist. I believe going to the NFL would mean a pay cut for him, and I'm sure he won't want to sit on the bench, but a true shot at a starting job could entice him. Still, if he signed with us we'd not only be the favourites to win the cup this year, but we'd also be favourites for several years to come, and I'm sure he knows that.

Why does a guy like Reilly or Mitchell need to work out for those egotistical jokers? It's what they can do in a non-scripted situation that makes them winners and there is miles of video tape proving it for both of them. I'm all in on Willie Jefferson's point of view. If you want me on your field pay me.

A pay cut? What?
A back up QB in the NFL makes more than $600K Canadian. That being $448K U.S. Dollars.
The chance of Reilly sticking with an NFL team at the age of 34 years old is pretty well slim to none. Bo Levi has a much better chance at 29. Even with that I just don’t see it happening!
