Brandon Zylstra worked out for Detroit Lions as NFL tour continues

Receiver Brandon Zylstra worked out for the Detroit Lions this past Friday.

He led the CFL with 1,687 receiving yards on 100 receptions adding five touchdowns in 2017 and was named a 2017 all-star. The 24-year-old broke onto the scene with 508 yards in six games last year.

Zylstra played collegiately at Concordia College in Minnesota totalling 1,932 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns in 29 games adding 25 rushes for 394 yards and five touchdowns along with 39 kick returns for 885 yards with the Cobbers.

When he entered the NFL draft in 2016, Zylstra attended the North Dakota State pro day recording a 4.64 4o-yard dash, 34-inch vertical, 10-foot broad jump and pressed 225 pounds 16 times on the bench. He went undrafted in the NFL and signed with the Eskimos on May 30, 2016.

  1. Jeremiah was a Bull frog. // December 20, 2017 at 6:01 am //

    Rumour has it that using the CFL Grape vine. The Toronto Argonauts have gotten word to Brandon’s Zylstra’s Agent that they are ready to make him an offer that he couldn’t refuse in the CFL. Toronto wants SJ Green and Brandon Zylstra lining up with James Franklin behind centre. With their ultimate goal of Ricky Ray as the QBs coach (ready to come out of retirement on a moments notice) followed by Hamilton keeping both 2017 QBs in camp and a new start with June Jones and trading the rights of Johnny (Mr football) to Toronto.
    Popp, Trestman and Chamblin want to ignite the 2018 Argos camp. New ownership has the best idea yet and that’s to get young and exciting talent with big names into the Argos camp. What bigger name could they get right now than to have Johnny Football sharing the duties behind center. With a talented huge target like Brandon Zylstra.
    I say look out for T.O. as long as Popp, Trestman and Chamblin are running the show.

  2. That’s just it. Brandon Zylstra Is a 2018 CFL free agent. I can’t think of any CFL team that wouldn’t want to sign this young man. He’s a stud and makes it look so easy. He reminds me of a combination of 2 Canadian relievers when they were young. Jason Claremont and Andy Fantuz. Brandon Has the size, smarts and the strength. If Zylstra stays in the CFL and remains healthy. He will no doubt have an outstanding hall of fame career. Might even be in the top 3 of all time.

  3. I can see Zylstra joining his old NDS QB in Phila. Getting those guys together in 2018 might be a sight to behold. If that does not occur any spot in the CFL would be a great place for him. Can’t see the Eskimos letting him go elsewhere but $$$ talks and we all know BS walks.
