Seems that those that are continually asking what each of them do can get some answers from that Q and A.

Tillman handles part of the GM duties with regards to roster development (as part of the greater group) and Kent/Shawn handle the contract negotiations.

Still vague on who who handles concessions. I have some ideas.

Whoever handles concessions should be fired. The food is crap!

I think we all agree that the less said publicly, the better.  So, let's leave it there, please.

 Tillman talking about Vernon Adams

We feel like his skill set is a good fit for June's offensive system and June and Kent are excited about our quarterbacking trio of Jeremiah [Masoli ] , Vernon and Dane Evans. There's been a lot of talk , speculation and stuff about our quarterbacking situation, but this is what matters - the guys in our locker room have total confidence in Jeremiah .

Reading between the lines here I'm thinking that it is closer to being over then ain't over yet for all the Manziel lovers out there ...

They just traded for Vernon Adams, what else do you expect Tillman to say?
Don' t care who their QB is, only how many games they win and attendance. Everything else is a detail.

Manziel is still ours until he finds himself another job. The Ticats are keeping him
in their back pocket for the next year until he wants to come out and play.
No trades will happen.

Still don't think Manziel really ever was a serious product for Hamilton...he has got what he wanted...some well needed press so he can hook onto the new "silly ball" league starting up again in the states...he'll make a mint before it folds.

Not liking how he didn't say much about re-signing Tasker & Dean.  I feel like Laurent may leave because he wants more $ again...not sure how much more they can pay him when there are cheaper & just as effective alternatives (Zack Evans).  Tasker & Dean have to be brought back, imo.

I have always been a big Ted fan. He does more than the stats tell us but he only had sacks in 2 games last season and finished the season on an 0 sacks in the last 8 games. 30 years old. How much tread left on those big tractor tires??

He's also never won a Grey Cup, he may go chasing a ring

Good interview. Tillman’s comments could be taken either way:

1. Possible Manziel deal is still in play

OR

2. This is embarrassing and we don’t want to talk about it

8)  I agree,  concentrate on getting Dean and Tasker  re-signed !!

     I would let Laurent walk.  He already is over paid for what he contributed last year.
     At 30 now, he could very easily price himself right out of the league, if he is demanding even 
     what he made last year,  a reported $200-250,000 a year.

      You can get a great import tackle for half that money, who would be just as good as Ted, and 
       they have options to make up for the ratio situation they would lose since Ted is a National !!
