he will now never get to win a cup with the riders. how sad. He should have never left in 2007.

I wish him well. All the best Omarr.

So much for winning a ring. He probably just hates the fact he was in Edmonton when they won in 07.

With Alexander gone, I'm guessing this means Nick Graham and Kornegay will man the corners.

Omarr holds the CFL record for the longest fumble return. (108 yards)

That was a great fumble return for TD (108yds). I remember that huge Eskimos O lineman never giving up all the way to the endzone, ha ha . And yes, this guy's biggest regret of career has to be going to Eskimos in 2007 and missing his Grey Cup ring.
