S.J. Green gets CFL contract
Add receiver S.J. Green to the list of Bulls seniors landing pro football contracts. The former Brandon star has signed a 2-year deal with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.
Green said Monday morning that he attended an open tryout in Tampa right after USF's pro timing day last month and was offered a contract on the spot. Green's size -- USF listed him at 6-foot-3, and he was measured at 6 feet, 1.7 inches at the Bulls' timing day -- will help him even more in the CFL, as only one of the 12 receivers on Montreal's roster is even listed at taller than 6 feet.
Still waiting on word from a few other seniors like Patrick St. Louis, Thed Watson and Pat Julmiste. And to revisit Stephen Nicholas getting drafted Sunday, here's what his hometown Jacksonville paper and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution had to say about his selection. With a pectoral injury to starter DeMorrio Williams, Nicholas could be stepping into a big role for the Falcons, at least at the start of the season.
