South of the Border: Canadian receiver traded to the Chicago Bears … Dr. Duvernay-Tardif weighing future options

Want the latest Canadian football news from south of the border? We are covering news from coast to coast covering prospects from high school to the NFL every week!

  • Starting off this section with some unfortunate news, as Texans receiver and 2022 second-round NFL Draft pick, CFC1oo WR John Metchie III, has been diagnosed with Leukaemia. It is supposed to be the most curable form of the disease but it will likely hold the former CFC100 Class of 2019 #1 ranked prospect out for this season. We wish him well in his recovery.


  • In more positive news, former Patriots first-round pick WR N’Keal Harry has been traded to the Chicago Bears, where he should get a fresh start to his so-far underwhelming career which has been impacted by injuries. In Chicago he should be competing for a starting spot, and hopefully he can show some of the impact he showed in college as one of the most impressive college receivers in recent memory. 


  • Offensive lineman Dr. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif had his CFL rights acquired by the Montreal Alouettes. Since being drafted in 2014 by Kansas City, the 2020 Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year has started for the Chiefs and more recently the New York Jets. He is currently a free agent who’s made it seem like he’s setting aside football to focus on being a doctor, but perhaps his local team hopes to change that.
