  • And if they aren't starters the ratio makes it tough to justify having them on the 46. They'd have to take up a DI spot as a depth receiver despite it being highly unlikely either would be used on special teams.....

  • The flipside of the "bring them to camp for a look" theory is it means 2 fewer young players who could be Elks for a decade getting a look....

    Maybe he should put in a call to Milt. He looked pretty darned good in those one on one drills with that flag football guy a little while ago....

    He was known to carry almost a taxi squad of healthy guys on the 6G. Then he'd have them out practicing with coaches involved, something that is verboten. Rider fans blamed BLM for blowing the whistle on that. However well before he said anything Adam...

    I loved Manny for what he brought but wasn't surprised when BC didn't bring him back in 2019. His knee injuries seemed to have robbed him of a step. He certainly didn't do anything with the Riders to make that look like a bad decision. I haven't watched...

    Biggest knock on Rourke's arm in the scouting report for the NFL was lacking touch on deeper balls and lacking the arm needed for the very tight NFL windows. That's from an NFL perspective for him playing in the NFL. He's in the CFL now, not the NFL....

    There were really no "issues" in BC other than lack of results. Claybrooks just gets added to a long list of proven coordinators thought to be sure fired top HC candidates only waiting the job offer. Cortez, Stabler, Elizondo and Hall are just...

    I was looking forward to seeing how 2019 would end. BC still had a shot at overtaking Edmonton for the crossover spot on that fateful October night. While they were only 5-10 going into that game they were playing their best football of the season going...

    The challenge there is the highly likely probability there will be for sure one and possibly more teams who at minimum would be looking at Masoli in the same sort of tandem/insurance/mentor for a young QB and would not be paying that young QB nearly...

    I watched him during BC's training camp in 2019. What a pant load. During stretching exercise before practice and during cool down after practice he basically just lounged around on the ground, smiling and mostly yukking it up with training staff and...

    Take a look at the task they had at hand. I don't know that they had more than 3 starters under contract. They already lost 2 big pieces to the NFL and might lose a couple more. So far they've managed to get about 9 of those 20ish 2021 starters back....

    They don't have any intention of signing everybody because they know they can't. They're only paying Collaros $35K more than the Riders are paying Fajardo and highest paid is based on what happens with Reilly. Until he retires or takes a minimum $25K...

    Washington I suspect was being paid as a long tenured journeyman calibre America OL starter. What that is I don't know but suspect would be around or slightly less than a NAT backup with 4 or 5 years of service which would be less than an American all-star...

    Hopefully he starts. It's hard to justify relegating a 10 year American vet, paid accordingly, to the PR or pay full cap hit to stash him on the 1G. Ideally you'd like that depth guy to be younger and just a bit more playing time away from hopefully...

    It's not all about age at that point. It's about value. What does it cost to keep that player? If he's 35 then he's a 10 year vet who will command a significant salary. Did he grade out consistently well from start to finish of the previous seaaon? Or...

    Maybe others are signing more because they have a lot more to deal with? Currently the Elks are down to a CFL 18 left to deal with tied with BC. While Saskatchewan and Calgary have been busier than EE and BC both still have twice as many left to deal...

    That was also a different era. There was no SMS then which allowed teams to keep their old guys around a couple more years than they typically would play today....
