Burris A Cat! Finally, the Ti-Cats Make a Move!
TSN reported yesterday that the Calgary Stampeders have traded veteran quarterback Henry Burris to the Hamilton Tiger Cats in exchange for quarterback Kevin Glenn, Mark Dewit and a conditional pick.
Burris and his large contract became expendable after struggling early this season and with the emergence of Drew Tate. After 3 seasons in Hamilton, Glenn was not able to lead Hamilton to a winning season and advance to the Grey Cup. The Tiger Cat offence did not show up in the Eastern Final against the Bombers. In fact, that has been the knock on Glenn for years – he can’t win the big game.
I think this trade works out for both teams. The Cats get a proven Grey Cup winning quarterback that knows what it takes to win. The Stamps get to put Burris’ $400,000 salary towards upgrading other parts of the team. Glenn, although he hasn’t won when the pressure is on, is still a great veteran quarterback that Tate can learn from. He also won’t cost as much as Burris.
Now all the Cats have to do is get a head coach.
Who do you think won this trade?
…and that is the last word.
