The deadness of the CFL off-season has never hit home so much as it does now, with nothing but crickets as CFL teams prepare for the CFL draft on May 3 and the NFL draft which will dictate the CFL draft choices before then.
The Second CFL concluded with the Player Combine in Winnipeg where prospective draft choices are put through their paces and CFL teams look into their crystal ball to try to determine who will make it to the pros and who won’t.
In this CFL off-season, after some pretty good bursts of energy, you can see why in mid-March the Romans killed Julius Caesar.
The dust has mostly settled from CFL free agency with a few interesting people remaining, but now the focus is shifting to the CFL Week in Winnipeg March 22-25 which will include the CFL Combine March 24-25.
If the CFL wanted to get back into the spotlight in the off-season then so far, so good.
The memo from Commissioner Randy Ambrosie to create more interest in the CFL in the off-season appears to be having an impact.
