The Colts spent a 7th round draft pick on Indiana corner Ray Fisher in last year's NFL Draft, and while I am more than a little inclined to spew angry rants about draft busts like Donald Brown and (so far) Jerry Hughes, Fisher getting cut before the start of the season never really bothered me.
The obvious difference is Fisher was a 7th rounder while guys like Brown and Hughes are more vital (and more expensive) first rounders.
Still, even though Fisher never quite 'made it' in Indy, it's nice to see he has someone who thinks he can play football. Ray signed with the CFL's Edmonton Eskimos yesterday. Said Eskimos general manager Eric Tillman of Fisher:
"He is one of many talented rookies we plan to sign."
One of the more interesting player Twitter feeds to follow is Fisher's, especially when he starts talking about love advice.
It's unfortunate it didn't work out in Indy, where Fisher played his college ball in Bloomington. We wish Ray the best of luck in Canada.
