VANCOUVER -- One came out of retirement for one more shot at a Grey Cup win. Another may be about to go into retirement. And another came back to the team after spending most of the year in exile.

"It's sweet," said Bruce Beaton, the offensive lineman who went out on top as a Grey Cup champion in 2003 and came back to try to win a ring for his newborn son Sam this year.

"I'm on a roll," he said. "I've got a shot. This is what you dream about."

Chris Morris, generally expected to retire at the end of the season, said "I keep reading that."

Morris said he's just "really happy" to be back in the Grey Cup game again.

Dan Comiskey, traded back to the Esks along with running back Troy Davis late in the season, said "I'm speechless."

Comiskey had to leave Edmonton and move closer to home due to complications with the birth of twin daughters.

"I had to leave because of family matters. Even though I was gone, I still loved this team and I'm thankful I was able to come back."
