WINNIPEG - If Desia Dunn had a dollar for every time he got switched to the dollar linebacker position this season, he’d have, well, a dollar.

Dunn showed up for training camp this year not knowing what to expect with a new head coach and a new defensive co-ordinator greeting him at the door. It turns out they moved him from the wide to the short side of the field to the spot known as the dollar back, which is the weak-side linebacker is traditional CFL defences.

“It didn’t come as a surprise, but it’s not bad,” Dunn said after practice today. “You’re in the box a lot more, but so far it’s been good. I haven’t been banged up. I actually feel better than I did last year. I like it playing there. I’m also playing other positions, too.”
