Burke Dales To Winnipeg: Hold On

Giants27Analyst IFebruary 18, 2009

Former Calgary Stampeders punter Burke Dales agreed to terms on a contract with the Blue Bombers on Monday, but he's refusing to sign the contract.


Dales has it in his head that he's NFL-worthy and is waiting for an NFL team to sign him.

This is not going to happen because if a team needs a punter they'll sign one with NFL experience or just simply draft one.

Now, should an NFL team give Dales a shot? Yes.

Will they? I doubt it.

Where can I comment?
