Tillman like to do deals with GM's he has worked with in the past (ex. Chick and Gable traded to Edmonton this year maybe due to Tillman working with Edmonton's current GM on the same staff...Ottawa?...in the past).  

If I remember correctly, I think there is also an Edmonton connection with Tillman and Hervey. 

So does Hervey's appointment in BC make a deal shipping Collaros or Manziel's rights out west more probable?

I think so.  I'm not sure the Lions are happy with Jennings after last season, and Lulay is banged up.

I think BC, MTL, TOR and possibly OTT will have serious interest in Zach

It's too bad we did not snap up Ed Harvey.  The man won a cup in 3 years as Esks gm. They fired him for stupid reasons.
As for qb, I think they may try to work with Jennings in 2018. Can' t see Manziel going there, Zach is more likely to be an Argo.

If KA deals him anywhere in the east he needs his head checked and be give concussion protocol. I would not put it past him or this organization tho.
Best Game\'s ever. 1986 game 2 Ticat Argo Home and Home East final series and 1998 Eastern Final Hamilton VS Montreal.

Johnny Football signing in BC would sell tickets in that market!

If he lost  8 in a row with the Argos this year we might have won the grey cup

I'm really not sure why people think anyone is going to trade for Collaros at 540k per year.

Again, unless Zach agrees to restructure and take a pay cut with the team we're trading him to he's going to get released.

And why would he agree to a restructure with a team when he can become a free agent and negotiate with multiple?

The only team that Zac should play for in 2018, is us.
Is it June (2018) yet?

The stupid reasons were he couldn't get along with anyone. QUOTE:
He hadn’t been on speaking terms with vice-president of communications Allan Watt. His relationship with coach Kavis Reed quickly soured, although both men played the public-relations game well. His relationship with Chris Jones became so distant that the former Eskimos head coach told his assistant coaches to avoid talking to the GM at all costs. And, as strained as all of those relationships were, if possible, Hervey’s relationships with Rhodes and CFL Commissioner Jeffrey Orridge became even worse.
It was the worst kept secret around Commonwealth Stadium that Hervey had told Rhodes to “butt out” of football operations. And he used much stronger words in a heated exchanged with the commissioner over last year’s live mic fiasco. It wasn’t the only time Hervey argued defiantly with those in the CFL office, either.
It seemed like Hervey felt the Eskimos were his kingdom. He acted bulletproof and took a ‘Do You Know Who I Am?’ approach to anyone who challenged him, including the commissioner.
The list of people with whom Hervey had such conflict seemed longer than his list of on-field victories, including league bosses, club bosses, players who balked at taking pay cuts and even TSN — the CFL’s lifeblood television partner.
In 4 years Hervey didn't draft a single Canadian starter. Hervey often took credit for scouting done by now interim GM Paul Jones. 
traded Jerome Messam for a 6th round pick.
He obviously did some good in his time in Edm but was he so good that he is worth all the conflict?
We will see.

Hervey has stated he hates Tillman. Replaced him as Esks GM. Maybe our GM Tillman can do Hervey a favor to get back in the good graces and trade him Zach Collaros??

Wally Buono is no soft touch.

Can't see Ed playing those games around him
