    Montreal is attempting to corner the market on non-import QBs.

    After signing Kyle Quinlan yesterday it appears as though they have signed Acadia's Kyle Graves.

    Waiting to see where Billy Greene goes for camp.

    What's your opinion of Graves, Rids?

    Big strong kid (6'4" 215) with scrambling ability, he was the AUS MVP in 2011 and led them to an AUS Championship. Very athletic kid!! He was also the punter for the Axemen.

    His downside is that he has relied on his arm strength much of his career and that led to more incompletions. No season over 60% completion percentage. If he could reign that in and make better decisions he could be a guy worth more than a look. He may benefit from having a receiving corps that doesn't get double teamed as much as they did in the AUS.

    Montreal has added a third non-import QB to their camp. Part of the Intern program Ottawa Gee-Gee QB Aaron Colbon.

    Tokenism. But better than nothing.

    Like I said earlier, tokenism. Quinlan & Graves actually thought the Als might want them? They can both go back to school & win 10 more Hec Creightons, even the Heisman & CFL teams will still cut them. That's the way it is for Canadian qbs trying to play football in their country.
