The Ottawa Redblacks began practices on Sunday and have since had 3 full practices to start off the 2021 CFL season. Taking a look in at the roster, it has changed drastically since the Redblacks last played in 2019 and has changed mostly on the offensive side of the ball at wide receiver but the changes have yet to stop even though they are well into the first week of training camp.
As the Redblacks head into day 4 of their 2021 CFL training camp on Wednesday the team has added some players. They have announced the signings of both Terry Wright and Jaquan Blair at the wide receiver position. These players will not practice right away as they will have to go through their 7 day quarantine following their crossing of the border but will still be able to get some practices in during training camp.
Terry Wright, a 5-foot-10, 177 pound receiver out of Purdue has spent time with the Seattle Seahawks, Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins in his professional career and is featured as a versatile speed receiver, similar to a Ryan Davis or Cortrelle Simpson that the team already has at training camp. As for Jaquan Blair, the 6-foot-2, 205 pound receiver could be the next big body receiver for the Ottawa Redblacks. The team also has Jordan Smallwood, Joe Walker, Kendrick Rogers, Wesley Lewis and Marco Dubois but Blair will come in to battle with them. The Maine product had played in 39 games over the 4 seasons in college, catching a total 118 passes for 1,511 yards and 10 touchdowns.
