Canadien Football League Players into NFL

steve loganStefan Logan: Signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers

Since he signed on with the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers, Logan has already been impressive. The running back, who was brought in to be primarily a kick and punt returner, has impressed the coaches and fellow veterans enough that they have considered him as a third down running back.

Kenton Keith: Signed with the Indianapolis Colts

Colts fans will likely remember Keith for the one season when he was somewhat of a star for the Colts. Keith rushed for 533 yards with the Colts in 2007 with 4 touchdowns and a 4.4 yards per carry average.

Jeff Garcia: Signed originally by the San Francisco 49ers

  • Garcia has had success ever since coming from the CFL to the NFL.
  • Playing with Doug Flutie in Calgary, Garcia led the Stampeders to a Grey Cup victory and has been one of the most successful Stampeders in history. Garcia was also a multiple award winner in the Canadian Football League.

Doug Flutie: Signed originally by the Buffalo Bills

  • Famous for his Hail Mary throw, Flutie has been another example of a player coming from the CFL to the NFL to have success.
  • Playing in the CFL, Flutie had a record of 99-27, and threw for a record 6,619 yards one season. Three Grey Cup victories, six Most Outstanding Player awards, and a number of personal accolades later and Flutie has been considered to be one of the best quarterbacks to play in the CFL.

Warren Moon: Signed originally by the Houston Oilers

  • Moon has been regarded as the best player to play in both the NFL and CFL.
  • With the Edmonton Eskimos, Moon won five consecutive Grey Cups to help form the Eskimos dynasty.

Once heading to the NFL, Moon continued his success. Moon was a nine-time Pro Bowler in the NFL, the fourth all-time leader in passing yards. In fact, if you combine his CFL and NFL stats together, Moon would shatter a lot of NFL records.
