"(Renaud) did enough good things over the past week and a bit here to become employable, and it paid off on Saturday with a trade to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, whose punting woes over the past couple seasons have been well-chronicled.Winnipeg seems to be the Team X in pre-season, between having four quarterbacks competing for the starting job. (Personally, Stefan LeFors is the guy to root for, since he's a rare left-handed passer in the CFL and he has the same last name as a minor character in Mallrats.)
He was a long-shot to beat out his former Concordia teammate Burke Dales with the Stamps, of course, but word spread quickly about Renaud’s performance."
On the kicking side, placekicker, Alexis Serna is an American whose punting is best described as a work-in-progress, since he did it for only one season when he was at Oregon State. Meantime, feel-good story Dan Giancola has a hamstring problem and, hey, Renaud is live and kicking.
