Let’s talk Redblacks

The season opener is June 10, this Friday in Winnipeg, and the Rouge et Noir are coming off two straight three-game winning seasons.

There are a lot of changes in the Redblacks’ starting lineup, especially in attack. The entire offensive line has been new for a year. Of the five receivers starting Friday, only one – Nate Behar – was with Ottawa in 2021.

There will also be a new running back – Devonte Williams starts this week. And, of course, the 2018 CFL East MVP – Jeremiah Masoli – is the team’s new starting quarterback.
