Roy Finch doing mini AFC East workout tour

Roy Finch has made his way to another AFC East team for a workout.

Finched worked out for the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday and did the same with the New York Jets on Wednesday.

Finch had a stellar season leading the CFL in punt return yards (1,200) and yards per return (16.4 among players with a minimum of five tries) and his 103-yard effort for a touchdown in Week 7 against Toronto was the longest punt return so far this season. Those totals earned Finch the Most Outstanding Special Teams Player award.

He’s a dynamic weapon on offence too, producing 114 rush yards on 21 carries and recording 18 receptions for 133 yards, including 79 yards after the catch. Finch is just 26 years old which is a prime age range for NFL teams.

Along with dynamic open field ability, Finch has long speed running a 4.47 40-yard dash at the University of Oklahoma pro day in 2016. Finch was one of three players NFL teams asked for permission to workout out that played with Calgary in 2017.

Finch spent time with the New England Patriots in 2014, that makes it three out of four AFC East teams.

  1. Good luck to him. If he makes it, we will miss him. but it gives he CFL more credibility

    Some CFL kick returners have jumped to the NFL and had success. Marcus Thigpen and Stefan Logan come to mind as ones in recent years.
    I think Finch might be one of the successful Free agents heading south. He’d be a big loss for the Stamps, but luckily they gave Canadian rookie Tunde Adeleke lots of reps on returns too. He looks like he could be an excellent Kick/ Ount return specialist too.
