    With Shivers being the A/ HC also just wondering what happens with McAdoo ? If he stays he likely will do more than be an advisor, like last season.

      Offensive Line - 11
      Quarterback - 6
      Running Back - 6
      Long Snapper - 2
      Punter - 1
      Place Kicker - 1
      I hate to be a “harpy” but historicaly field goal kickers on good teams rank highly in league stats for most points by an individual. This should emphasize their importance to team success. I am sure this is not lost on our brain trust but I would be reassured if the 2 open roster spots were devoted to field goal specialists.
      Perhaps appropriate dollars are being allocated to sign an elite free agent kicker and I should quit fretting.
      The only 4 free agent kickers available today are ; Castillo (Winn.) , Bede ( Tor. ), Leggio and Vedvik ( Ham. ). Not a huge selection…….

        I wonder if McAdoo is still under contract. Wouldn’t be entirely opposed to him being a line coach, but Sorrells did finally get some improvement.

        Wonder what the dynamics will be with Jones and Shivers both being defensive guys who likely will be hands-on. I’m still very interested in ST and some of the positional assignments too.

          Sounds like Sask is reportedly keeping Lanier on a big money deal. I wonder if that is due to the apparent interest from Edmonton. Will they turn to Oakman or really look at internal candidates and American signings?

            Ceresna is going to be hard to replace but the Dline is one area that a new guy can step in and be effective right away. I will reserve judgment until I see how we look in week 1

              could you imagine.....

              In a big FU to the "global player" Chris Jones goes out and signs a Sumo from Japan for the Oline - because as the replacements taught us - they are experts at pushing people around

                    Call me crazy…. But I could see CJ signing DE Johnathan Kongbo…is a National and seems like a CJ player…long and athletic and some NCAA and NFL pedigree… has not lived up to expectations but potential is there… could also be 1/7 starters… just a thought…

                    Personally it’s the DLine that needs to be addressed the most this offseason/FA…. I still want DE Leanord back… needs another DE (Kongbo) and more DT…. Especially with Ceresna gone…. The DT from the NFL..1st round pick from Ole Niss may be answer.. but sure like Oakman also…

                    My 4 Cents…

                      I don't like to trail of stink following Kongbo as he was traded away after 2 weeks in BC then asked for a release from Hamilton this off season. I may be wrong but he seems like a problem child.

                        I've heard he's very much a "me" guy. All speculation of course, but where there's smoke, there's fire.
                        Hope, at the end of the day connects us all, no matter how different we are

                          To give him benefit of the doubt I wonder if he returned to the CFL and BC a little too full of himself which led to him quickly finding himself in Hamilton. From there I wonder if the realization that any hopes of one last NFL shot are quickly evaporating thus he wanted his release from Hamilton to get a UFL deal in hopes he can play his way into that NFL shot come July. Worst case if that didn’t work out he could draw a full UFL salary and be back up north for 3/4 of a CFL season.

                            People change for sure, hopefully he does as well...... At least if the rumours of his attitude are true that is.

                              Redblacks release Canadian OL Jacob Ruby prior to offseason roster bonus - 3DownNation

                              Ruby came to Edmonton after Jones et al departed the first time and left in a bit of controversy, but is it worth kicking the tires here? He seemed to enjoy his time in Edmonton and has proven himself to be a very capable national guard. It would surprise me, given the re-signings and the possible availability of guys who may have offensive connections to this group (like a Ciraco or Bladek) but who knows?

                              I could see him reuniting with Harris in Saskatchewan... or maybe Hervey and Beard in Hamilton.

                                The Edmonton Elks have signed American running back Ja'won Howell and released Canadian defensive lineman Olivier Charles-Pierre.
