Maurice Mann was out of the CFL, but at no time was he ever out of football, staying in shape and trying to impart his athletic wisdom to today’s youth.
A Mann with a clear plan, the veteran didn’t think he’d back in the Argos fold and there’s no guarantee he’ll line up in a game, but there’s a chance amid so much upheaval on the offensive side of the ball.
The first step arrived on Wednesday, Mann participating in Toronto’s practice after agreeing to a practice-roster deal that is more clerical than anything else.
In a perfect world, the Argos may not feel the need to turn to Mann, who has briefly put aside his responsibilities with International Developmental Fast Football League to reignite his pro career, however long it may last.
On the imperfect Argos offence, which will start a handful of first-year starters Friday night in Ottawa, anything is now possible, any player with any Toronto connection now reappearing on the team’s radar.
