The New York Giants are no strangers to CFL talent, having signed several Canadian players in recent years, including center Brett Jones, who was traded to the Minnesota Vikings earlier this year.
This week, the Giants will take a look at another potential CFL import when they host quarterback and two-time league MVP, Bo Levi Mitchell, for a workout.
In addition to the Giants, Mitchell has already worked out for the Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, Jacksonville Jaguars, Chicago Bears, and Buffalo Bills. He will workout for New York and two additional teams beyond that list, proving that the interest in far-reaching.
The 28-year-old Mitchell is not only a two-time CFL MVP (called “Most Outstanding Player” in the CFL), but has also won the Walter Payton Award (2011) and Big Sky Conference Offensive Player of the Year (2011), and is a two-time Grey Cup champion and MVP.
Mitchell also holds the CFL record for most consecutive wins by a starting quarterback (14), best starting record for a first-time quarterback (12-1) and fastest starting quarterback to 60 wins (72 Starts).
In 104 career CFL games, Mitchell has completed 1,851 of his 2,865 pass attempts for 24,473 yards, 150 touchdowns and 59 interceptions. He has also gained 723 yards and scored 14 additional touchdowns on 156 carries.
