So with sinkfield out of the plans is there any other experienced receivers left on the market?

Obviously there is Andy and a bunch of talented American College kids....... but I am wondering about experienced cfl vets.

Tori Gurley comes to mind

Thanks to @Doc_Dave for sig

Pickings are slim  and the cupboard is basically now bare when it comes to FA's and WR's .  Chiles  is still unsigned and available and being he was here last year would know the playbook and our systems . The aforementioned Gurley is still out there BUT with Elliott already signed it would appear unlikely that the Cats would bring him in . After that though the talent level drops way off with whose still left available . Here's a quick list of who is still available from the other eight teams , like I said not really anybody to get overly excited about .

Marcus Henry ( Alouettes )
Jamil Smith ( REDBLACKS )
Andre Durie ( Argonauts) (Cdn)
Phil Bates (Roughriders)
Joe West ( Stampeders )
Greg Wilson ( Stampeders )
Devin Bailey ( Eskimos ) (Cdn)
Chris Getzlaf ( Eskimos ) (Cdn)

12,13,15,28,29,32,43,53,57,63,65,67,72,86,99

8)  Right about Chiles, bobo, but no one has even bothered to sign him up to this point, including the Cats !!

      He obviously did not overly impress the Cats last year, nor me, in the few games that he played for us   :roll:

Devon Bailey has a ton of potential. Derriere has retired. Getzlaf has not impressed me. I like Gurley, however he and Elliott may be a huge locker room distraction.

I disagree with you about Getzlaf. He would be a huge upgrade over our current National receivers...

Must be a ton of receivers graduating from US colleges.  Don't believe there would be any problem finding an international receiver, at a reasonable price.  And before I hear the backlash about bringing in rookies, remember, they were all rookies once!

We currently have 12 receivers listed on the current roster . 10 returnees ( 6 American / 4 Canadian ) and 2 rookies .
The American contingent as it stands right now is not bad but could use some added depth . The Canadians on the other hand without Fantuz ? Well the less said the better ( no depth / very little experience ) and needs some serious upgrading . Once you get by Watt there is very little behind him . I'm hoping that we can somehow snag Vandervoort with our 4th pick in the upcoming draft . The guy has the potential to be a stud and maybe even the next Fantuz .

Here is what we have right now on the roster in the Receiving Department

Americans

Terrence Toliver
Luke Tasker
Brian Elliott
Brian Tyms
Brandon Banks
Junior Collins
Nathan Palmer ( rookie)
Frankie Okafor ( rookie)

Canadians

Spencer Watt
Giovanni Aprile
Mike Jones
Matt Uren

Spencer Watt

I'd be very comfortable with these five as our starters, but less comfortable with the depth in behind them, given our team's propensity for injuries.  Note that this lineup already requires a ratio change from last year, when having Fantuz and Watt allowed us to start two Nationals.

But do we have anyone with Sinkfield's speed??? That's the problem. :thdn: (Banks can't be compared with Sinkfield)

If you believe the 4.19 second 40 that Sinkfield was once clocked at ... then no one has anyone with his speed.  (I'm not even convinced the Vikings do.)

Even someone with C Williams speed will do. Or someone like Banks speed but 6'2" also would do.

I would also like a McLaren in my driveway and $10 M in my bank account.  :D

And maybe a 6'2" speedster to drive it and take some of your money? :D   The beauty of posting on a forum over operating in the real world, eh?
