Recent rumblings have the BC Lions toying with the idea of bringing non-import receiver Kamau Peterson to training camp. The big question that has to be asked is how is the health of the 32 year old former Edmonton Eskimo, following surgery to reattach his Achilles tendon 6 months ago?
The Eskimos were obviously wary of the answer to that question, and despite paying Peterson a 20,000 bonus earlier in the off-season, they released him.
We stumbled across this video of Peterson working out 6 months after the procedure and if the evidence is any indication, the Lions might do well to indeed add Peterson to the roster in 2011. Hampered by injuries in 2010, Peterson came into his own as an Eskimo and is a dedicated player who can provide some great leadership.
Take a look and see what you think, but it looks like the surgery has been successful, at least in these controlled workouts.
