        That was quick. Hearing WR Dominique Rhymes has agreed to terms on 2-yr deal with Ott. Rhymes and BC mutually parted ways yesterday. Ott was apparently 1 of 4 teams interested in Rhymes and is where he began his CFL career in '17. Understand deal is worth about $420k guaranteed.
        Hope, at the end of the day connects us all, no matter how different we are

            Well over 2 years I think that's reasonable for what he's done recently assuming he stays healthy. He makes his off season home in Ottawa so not surprised he returned to play there.

              More referring to the guaranteed portion but I guess he's a known commodity more then he is a risk

                    edit...sorry adb, didn't see you posted this news already.
                    The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have traded quarterback Dru Brown to the Ottawa Redblacks for a fifth-round pick in the 2024 CFL Draft, per sources. Brown is scheduled to become a free agent on February 13. By trading for him general manager Shawn Burke can negotiate a contract with Brown prior to the market opening. That […]

                      Wondering if that means Streveler to Winnipeg is pretty much a sure thing..

                        Streveler will be an interesting one. Brown to Ottawa pretty much removed the last place that might offer a chance to compete to start in 2023. I'm not handing the job to Brown but I think Ottawa will proceed to choose their starter out of the guys they have now, assuming they extend Brown.

                        The question would be is Streveler willing to accept a pure backup role at backup pay? Perhaps there will be a team that will offer something like Dane Evans' contract with BC; low salary but a lot of playtime incentives. In the case of Winnipeg Collaros is still under contract for 2 more years. Does he want to go to a place where he'd have to wait another 2 years before the starting job might come open?

                          Reminds me of Ed trading with the Lions to get Mike Reilly's rights in 2013 before FA. . Gives Ottawa time to work out a deal and not much to lose with a 5th rd choice if they can't work out a contract.

                          I thought Dustin Crum did a good job with Ottawa last year considering they let their OC go at the end of the season.

                            There's been a few of such trades of rights to pending FA QBs over the past decade. Calgary sent Arbuckle to Ottawa on Jan 3, 2020. Hervey acquired Reilly from BC on Jan 31, 2013. Riders sent Drew Willy to Winnipeg on Feb 6, 2014. And of course last year in classic early bird gets the worm Hamilton dealt for Mitchell before the 2022 Grey Cup.

                              A dual threat QB, Barriere appeared in 51 games at Eastern Washington, completing 62 percent of his passes for 13,809 yards, 121 touchdowns against 29 interceptions while adding 22 rushing TDs and 1,585 yards along the ground. In 2021 he was the recipient of the Walter Payton Award as the top offensive player in NCAA Division 1 Football Championship Subdivision. He was the runner-up to the same award in 2020.

                                Winnipeg has one of the best place kickers in the league, yet they still sign competition for TC.
                                Take note, Chris Jones...
                                The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed seven American players, including receivers Peter Afful, Braxton Burmeister, Oliver Martin, and Keric Wheatfall, defensive lineman Ali Fayad, defensive back Marcus Hillman, and kicker Jose Borregales. Afful made 63 catches for 1,220 yards and 16 touchdowns over 23 collegiate games at Washburn University, a Division II program in Topeka, […]
