It's been a long, long tims since Joe Borchard was considered a top prospect, and almost as long since anyone thought he had a realistic chance to stick around for long as a reserve, but I figured this might make for good water cooler conversation nonetheless. From the Chicago Sun-Times:
''This was the first offseason where I did start thinking about things differently,'' Borchard said. ''I talked to an old offensive coordinator friend of mine from college who is now in the CFL [Canadian Football League] and asked him if I had a chance to play in that league still. He told me, 'You've got a spot waiting for you.' So, yeah, you start thinking about it.''
Why not? Would you really miss him? It's clear he doesn't have a future in the big leagues, and at 27, his window of opportunity to switch sports is fast closing.
