Medlock not going to 'beg' Argos

Justin Medlock continues to train, but he is unsure what his football future holds.

Cut by the Detroit Lions last week, Medlock has not heard from the Argonauts.

“I’m just waiting it out, just hanging out,” Medlock said from his home in the San Francisco Bay Area on Saturday afternoon.

“If they call me, they call me, but I don’t want to beg for a spot. If they don’t call, I’ll have to see what happens.”

Medlock was lights out for the Argonauts in 2009, connecting on 40 of his 46 field-goal attempts for an 87% success rate. That was second in the Canadian Football League to Damon Duval of the Montreal Alouettes, who was successful on 87.3% of his field-goal tries.

Medlock’s solid performance on a weekly basis led to a contract with the Washington Redskins.

After he was cut by Washington, Detroit claimed him on waivers.

Medlock also punted for the Argos last year after Eddie Johnson got hurt in the opener.

Argos head coach Jim Barker prefers to have a couple of non-imports kicking and punting, so there might not be a Double Blue reunion with Medlock.

Rookie Grant Shaw, an Edmonton native, made his lone field goal on Thursday night against the Calgary Stampeders.

Veteran Jamie Boreham of Vancouver punted and handled kickoffs.
