TORONTO - Funny thing that happens when an organization is turned around.

Everyone wants to come back.

Adriano Belli, who was felled by a foot injury, Bryan Crawford, who will be a free agent, Rob Murphy, on whom the Argos hold an option, all wish to return to the Argonauts in 2011.

Ditto for Noel Prefontaine, who is heading into his option year.

“I am planning on taking some rest for about month or so and getting back in shape and see what happens,” Belli said. “I am still excited to play football. I get to crush quarterbacks, cause trouble and wear tights all day.”

The desire to return is thanks in large part to Jim Barker, who is a favourite for CFL coach of the year. But Barker vowed changes on his 9-9 team.

“We need to make changes everywhere,” Barker said. “My job is to make sure that if we have an opportunity to improve our team, we do it.”
