Taj Smith Making Most of CFL Opportunity
On January 30, 2012 Smith signed a contract with the Canadian Football League's Saskatchewan Roughriders. Smith was added to the active roster for the last few weeks and has shined. Smith, the only former Syracuse player in Canadian football, has averaged 30 yards per catch. He had a 74 yard touchdown earlier this season and has made some amazing plays thus far. This week he was featured in the Canadian Football League's Top 10 plays.
We had the chance to ask him about his CFL season so far. Smith said, "Just enjoying the opportunity to be playing. I'm loving every bit of it." Smith and his Roughriders team will take on the BC Lions on Sunday.
