Just thinking about all of the players that have exelled in the CFL only to go onto careers in the NFL (Warren Moon, Doug Flutie, Mike Vandersnot, etc.) and I began to realize just how many NFL players also seem to jump ship to our league up here when they don't do so well down south.

Maybe some fellow Canadians (or you Yankees :)) can help me put a list together of all these players. These are the ones that I know about:

Andre Rison (played with Toronto last season)
Snoop Minnis (just read the post that he got cut by Toronto)
John Avery (yes...John Avery from the dolphins has actually put up some decent numbers up here for guess who? Edmonton & TORONTO)

Can't really think of any others but I'm hoping some of you can help me

Some players can excel in the CFL not only because the level of competition is weaker but because their physical limitations are not as apparent.

For example short QBs .
