Sherbrooke speedmeister Sam Giguère has a lucky horseshoe in his bid to stick with the Indianapolis Colts in the form of Cal Murphy, the long-time CFL coach.
Giguère is going to have some long odds considering Indy's depth chart at wide receiver, although he offers some possibilities as a punt returner and a special teams player. Murphy, a Colts scout, seems to be an advocate for players with a Canadian tie. Former Calgary Dinos lineman Dan Federkeil earned a Super Bowl ring in the 2006 season, while ex-Saskatchewan Roughrider Kenton Keith was in their tailback platoon last season.
If Indy doesn't work out, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats are pretty sweet on Giguere and Keith Shologan, the Canadian D-lineman from Central Florida who signed with the San Diego Chargers.
