Argos Sign a Boatload of Picks
The Toronto Argonauts announced today they’ve signed all but one of their 2022 CFL Draft and CFL Global Draft picks.
OL Gregor MacKellar, RB Daniel Adeboboye, LB Enoch Penney-Laryea, OL Braydon Noll, LB Daniel Kwamou, DB Eric Sutton, TE Chase Arseneau, OL Michael Pezzuto, P John Haggerty, DL Simeon Okonta-Wariso, and OL Otavio Amorim are all now under contract with the Argos in time for rookie camp. DL Deionte Knight has yet to sign with NFL Rookie Mini-Camp invites upcoming.
Argos rookie camp, which takes place at Alumni Stadium on the University of Guelph campus, begins on Wednesday, May 15th. Based on the number of players currently on their roster, the team will need to cut 19 players before training camp opens on May 15th, so the importance of these first practices for CFL rookies is magnified.
The Argos also announced Monday they’re bringing back a familiar face in offensive lineman Mojtaba Mehry. Mehry, a 6’5”, 300lb lineman from Leamington, Ontario was with the club for training camp last season, at a time when linemen were dropping like flies and his presence was badly needed. The giant right tackle obviously made a positive impression on the coaching staff.
