CFL Talent on Titans’ Radar

The Tennessee Titans evaluated talent from the Canadian Football League on Tuesday, as reported by football insider Aaron Wilson. Receiver Samuel Emilus of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, strong-side linebacker Reggie Stubblefield from the Montreal Alouettes, and linebacker Carthell Flowers-Lloyd of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats each demonstrated their skills for the NFL team.

Samuel Emilus’ Pro Day Credentials

In his first full season as a starter, Emilus, a former first-round pick in the 2022 CFL Draft from Louisiana Tech University, notched up significant numbers with 70 catches, accruing 1,097 yards and securing six touchdowns. Standing at six-foot-one and weighing 200 pounds, this Montreal native recorded a 4.59-second forty-yard dash, a 4.13-second shuttle, and a 6.88-second three-cone drill at his pro day. His athletic abilities also include a 37-inch vertical jump and a 128-inch broad jump, complemented by nine reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Earlier this off-season, Emilus extended his ambition towards the NFL with workouts for the Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots.

Reggie Stubblefield’s Standout Season

Stubblefield made a name for himself as Montreal’s Most Outstanding Rookie nominee in 2023 with 38 defensive tackles, three special teams tackles, three sacks, two interceptions, and one forced fumble. His performance peaked during the Grey Cup when he helped the Alouettes defeat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers with five tackles and a sack in the championship bout.

Carthell Flowers-Lloyd’s Special Teams Impact

On special teams, Flowers-Lloyd excelled in his rookie year in the CFL, amassing 31 special teams tackles across 18 games. The Stony Brook University alumnus was recognized as a third-team all-conference honoree in 2022, showcasing his versatility with 70 total tackles, 14 tackles for loss, two sacks, and a suite of forced and recovered fumbles, along with an interception and four pass breakups. He has also demonstrated his prowess during this off-season with workouts for the New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars.

CFL to NFL Transition Window

Under CFL contracts for the upcoming 2024 season, Emilus, Stubblefield, and Flowers-Lloyd have the ability to explore prospects with NFL teams during a designated workout window, concluding on February 13. The first opportunity for CFL players to ink reserve/futures contracts with NFL teams opens on January 8.

These workouts reflect the ongoing talent exchange between the CFL and NFL, with players keen to test their abilities on alternative grids; this remains a testament to the dynamic nature of professional football.
