The Dolmissois Shayne Gauthier will this weekend if he will play in the Canadian Football League this season with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Injured linebacker and 4th round pick of the team last month, however, has not had a chance to argue in a preseason game.
After signing his contract a few days after the draft, followed by a good rookie camp, that have earned good feedback from his coach Mike O’Shea, an injured hamstring came slow Shayne Gauthier who was forced to inactivity in the last two weeks. Nevertheless, he survived the first cuts earlier this week when the alignment has been reduced to about 65 players. Team leaders still work with a dozen others to perform Saturday before giving their final roster.
Three options are available Shayne Gauthier: either it pierces the formation of 56 players, or it ends up on the practice squad or simply cut to make a comeback with the Rouge et Or of Laval University for a fifth and last season. This scenario, however, is the least desirable for Dolmissois who wants to make his professional debut as early as this season. An element that plays in his favor is his Canadian player status while the rules limit the number of club by Americans. There would be restored to the original game of the season on June 24, against the Montreal Alouettes.
If he pierces the formation Bombers, Shayne Gauthier become the second player from the region in the CFL. The Sagueneen David Ménard soon begin its third season on the defensive line of the BC Lions.
