Darian Durant Would Consider Coming Out of Retirement for Blue Bombers

In the wake of the announcement that Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ quarterback Matt Nichols is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a knee injury sustained in training camp practice earlier this week, one retired signal caller is considering helping out the team.

According to TSN Football Insider Dave Naylor, recently retired quarterback Darian Durant would consider coming out of retirement to play for Winnipeg.

Durant signed with the Bombers this off-season but retired last month before training camp opened.

“We were informed prior to the start of our mini-camp that Darian Durant, along with his family, was reconsidering continuing his career,” Bombers general manager Kyle Walters said in a statement at the time. “Given the magnitude of this decision, we asked him to take the time to thoroughly consider his options and inform us of his decision.

“Ultimately, Darian has not informed the team of his decision, but we were notified through social media this morning that he has decided to retire from professional football. While we respect his decision, we are of course are extremely disappointed.

Durant, 35, threw for 3,233 passing yards and 15 touchdowns to 16 interceptions in 15 games with the Montreal Alouettes last season.

Argonauts Hire Mike (Pinball) Clemons as General Manager

Published

The Toronto Argonauts are bringing in one of the biggest names in CFL history to replace Jim Popp as their General Manager.

Mike ‘Pinball’ Clemons.

Clemons is a former star for the Argonauts on the field, a former head coach, and a former executive with the franchise, so he has a uniquely deep understanding of the team in a number of areas.

The Argos are in the midst of a terrible 2-12 season, following up a bad 4-14 record from last season, so a big change is long overdue and they feel that Clemons can help bring about the change that they need.

Argos president Bill Manning enlisted Clemons’ help last month in an advisory role and Clemons been vice chair of the team since 2009, saying that he turned down a front-office role with the Argos twice earlier this season before agreeing to the position after Saturday’s game.

“I didn’t need a job, I have a wonderful (charitable) foundation I love,” Clemons said, according to TSN.

“I make a living talking to people. I talk and they pay me. I’m not in this job because I need a job. I’ve got a bunch of jobs. I’m here because I love it and I care about our fan base. We want to make it better.”

Clemons knows that building a roster of the right players will be the key to his success.

“It’s not an I thing. If it’s me, this can’t be done,” Clemons said. “We’re going to build a strong, capable team around us. That’s only way we’re going to have any success.”

With the change, Clemons knows that addressing the quarterback position will be high on his priority list.

“We have to build a strong team, no question about that,” Clemons said. “But ultimately, you can’t disguise the importance of that position.”

Now, Clemons takes on the task of turning around a team that has been stuck in a rut and in need of change for the past few years.
