Fan Comments
not sure why matt carter is still in the league, other than hes canadian. I guess as a non import backup theres value, but watching him in hamilton, he dropped way too many balls and the ones he did catch he consistently jumped out a bounds like he didn't want to get hit or something. still no credible receivers in ottawa!!

Serviceable players, hopefully Carter can break the mold. Schiacone is not bad.
