‘Ottawa’ Redblacks Shifting Bodies Around on Offensive Line
Nearly as obvious as the shuffling of athletes into and out of various offensive-line positions during Ottawa Redblacks training camp is the idea that such shuffling will continue virtually right until kickoff for the Canadian Football League regular season.
Amid that shuffling, though, there have been a few constants, such as the regular duty for guard Matt Albright and tackle Jake Silas with the rest of what would normally be considered the Redblacks’ first-team offensive unit.
“I’m just doing my best to compete and come out here and let the chips fall where they may,” Silas, a 24-year-old Michigan native, said following Thursday’s on-field session at TD Place stadium. “That’s all up to the coaches. I’m just trying to show that I deserve to be here and that I can play.”
