Palardy Returns to St. Mary's Released

On the heels of the Tiger-Cats signing Punter Eric Wilbur, rookie Punter Justin Palardy has decided to leave the team and head back to St. Mary's to finish his university degree. The Cats have suspended Palardy so they can retain his rights in the future.

While it is surprising that Palardy would leave the team, it's not surprising that the Cats would make a change at Punter. As I said yesterday, I think Palardy, with time, could be a very good Punter in the CFL. He has all the physical tools to do the job; he just needs to work on his mechanics. Hopefully he'll be back in Black & Gold sometime in the future, contributing to a championship team.

For the time being, it looks like Eric Wilbur will be our Punter, which means some more changes will have to come, as Wilbur is an Import filling in for Palardy, who was a Canadian.

UPDATE: According to Drew Edwards, rookie Punter Justin Palardy has been released. He is now free to sign with any CFL team.
