Brock Lesnar to the CFL?

http://www.tsn.ca/cfl/news_story.asp...53&hubName=cfl

Don't need any CFL bashers in here, please keep this clean.

Any road to the NFL is a good road if this is Lesnar's dream. I wonder if he'll start a brawl in Winnipeg too.
Of course this is all just "insider info", as he isn't even signed yet, just put on a protected negotiation list.

How do these negotiation lists work? I mean, if two teams wanted to put him on their lists, how is it sorted out? Does he have to clear all other clubs, or is it first-come, first-serve with a request to the league?

I think it's first come first serve. Whoever has the scout in place to see the guy and tell his boss to put him on their list. Doesn't make much sense if the GM has to ask all the other teams nicely if they want to let him have first crack at the player in question.

So thats where he went. My dad told me Lesnar was going to play football in "some Canadian league".

I don't even think he'll make it in the CFL, but we'll see.

People say his attitude is great but I think he should go back to wrestling and stay there.

At 6'3'' 290 pounds he has all the physical tools to be a great pass rusher, he just hasn't played football in 10 years. Give him some time before you bash em'

No, but I wondered if there was some kind of rotating waiver order where teams got first crack at negotiating with a guy based on their position on the list or whether it truly was first-come, first-serve.

Having seen him play, he has a LONG way to go.

Tools are meaningless unless you know what to do with them. Lesnar doesn't. He was getting pushed around (he was 'pancaked' on about 1/4 of his plays), was exceedingly slow off the snap (the last guy on the field to react) and played WAY too high (likely way he was on his back so often).

I dout he'll play in the CFL. Going from making millions to making $30k on a practice roster is a big step down.

You think he would still have money from the wrestling gig, he should be set for life.

If he truly wants to make the NFL he will. Money isn't an issue for him as I'm sure he has gotten a lot saved up
