Still a year away from hitting the field, the Ottawa RedBlacks are already taking names and checking them twice.

Yep, the wait until 2014 may seem like an eternity to football-starved fans in Ottawa, but RedBlacks GM Marcel Desjardins and his football personnel folks -- Jeremy Snyder, Brock Sunderland and Myles Gorrell -- are already putting in lots of time eyeballing players who could form the core of Ottawa's expansion CFL team.

"I'm a CFL guy through and through," said Desjardins. "Brock and Jeremy are CFL and NFL guys and Miles is a CFL and CIS guy. It's a great mix to have."
