    Good pick up. Some added depth just in case Messam gets nicked up.

    After Harrison went down on Sunday I was thinking about him. He was at the try out camp in Florida and I thought he might have been given an invite to main camp.

    I remember when he played against the Stamps as a Bomber he had some pretty good rushes and as I recall in the snow was very dangerous that day in October.

    Good depth pick up.
