Vince Agnew is new to the Argos, one of many first-year CFL players on Toronto’s roster.

He is beginning anew, to say the least, and beginning to earn his keep in the defensive secondary.

Agnew had no clue his football path would bring him back to Canada when he was summoned by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers two years ago in mid-October.

All Agnew can recall of that short-lived visit to the ’Peg was the city’s well-earned reputation for its wind and cold.

And Tim Burke.

Agnew’s road completes its circle as he continues to prepare for Winnipeg’s visit next Tuesday, Toronto’s Week 1 opponent when he couldn’t crack the game-day roster.

Agnew has played in each of the Argos’ five games since the opener, lining up at field cornerback, playing with a competitive edge and a spirit that has endeared him to the team’s coaching staff.
