Right now the Elks have Cornelius, Ford, Beaudry who's probably more of a full back and Locksley who they turned into a receiver as the only 4 QB's on the roster.

        The QB combo gives me even less confidence with MCAdoo as the OC. I just do not think McAdoo calls a game that plays to their strengths.
        Yep we def need someone to back up or if he falters.

          nice let's see what he has in the tank. 31 years old isn't that old especially for a Dlineman

            Wouldn't upset me to see them sign a guy with experience. Plenty of QB moving parts over the next few weeks, lets see how it shakes out.

              Wait! We signed AC Leonard to play Dline right? Jones isn't going to move him back to receiver is he....or punter

                My post on RF maybe 15 minutes after his release said "Ring....ring......hello AC? Chris Jones speaking."

                  If CJ keeps signing veterans before they get their off-season bonuses and get cut (Purifoy and now Leonard) maybe he won't need to get busy once FA actually hits in a couple of weeks

                    By the sounds of things, we aren't going to be very active, looking for 3 or 4 players.

                      I’m really happy with this move. He should look really good lining up next to Ceresna. Nice to see a player commit here so quickly too.

                          I think last season CJ not happy with the D something I’m sure he takes pride with… I would expect a few more added to the D side of the ball… maybe at the expense of spending on offence….

                          He has his QB, RB and OL…. A few peices at WR… my gut says look for a few more FA impact D players…

                          My 3 Cents…

                            very true, kind of why I don't put much stock into the depth charts, other then who is in the lineup and who isn't

                              I think you're right. Which, when you don't have a top tier QB, isn't the worst move possible.

                                Can't say I am surprised to see A.C. Leonard signed and didn't think DE was an area in need but good players are good players. Surprised it happened so quickly. Speculation on Riderfans was it was in the works.

                                Didn't see it last year with Sankey but with Larry Dean injured in 2021 there were times when A.C. lined up at MLB. I think last year there was no where to hide him from a double team causing his numbers to be down.

                                Agree with others about another QB and think Bethel Thompson would be a great one year guy. We'll know more soon.
