of course wrote:Abdul Kanneh is the #1 guy I thought the Ticats would target. He would be a great addition to our secondary. The guy is a durable, shut down DB.

I think Austin has had enough of DB's being hurt all the time. So it wouldn't surprise me at all if Austin lets Rico Murray and Johnny Sears walk.


Looks like Abdul is a TiCat!

One of our now free agents who I'd like to see more of here is Cleshawn Page. He only played in 5 games, over the past two years, in his on and off time with the team. I liked his speed and close coverage on deep receivers enough to think he could be a good one.

Apparently Chad Owens has agreed to a 2-yr. deal with SSK. Sad to lose him, but the dollars are needed elsewhere.
For an Arg...., he fit in pretty darn well as a likeable TiCat. I'm thinking some good players are going to be available at the end of the Riders' training camp. Jones is grabbing up so many big names, worth so many dollars.

I don't think Jones gives a dam about the salary cap or any of the rules until the CFL commissioner puts him in place.

This report suggests Owens was getting not much more than a minimum veteran pay cheque in Hamilton. If that's true, I'd say we were getting a pretty good bang for our bucks, both on and off the field, before his season-ending injury in Game 12.

2 year deal means nothing... Could have been a 5 year deal.

8) Too bad. I liked Chad, and he fit right in instantly with the TiCats.

What a great game he had against his old team on Labour Day !! :D

I will still cheer for him, even if I hate the team he is with now :lol:

For anyone waiting on Sinkfield, it appears he wants to try the nfl again:

I remember last year around this time, when Owens first signed here, I wasn't that excited. I don't like the idea of throwing good money at aging players whose best days are probably behind them. And while Owens did quite well last season, the Riders can have him. The cap space that he took up can be better utilized elsewhere.

The way I saw it, Owens was brought in as the replacement for Sinkfield. And maybe Sinkfield will be coming back here. He did tweet that if he didn't get picked up by an NFL team he'd want to come back here, as you can see here: https://twitter.com/Solo_Sink2/status/8 ... 5098756099

A couple of little notes I picked up reading the Ottawa sports pages:

The RedBlacks were also talking with Jeff Matthews before he chose to go where Tommy Condell is.

And, words from Ron Omara, who's from Aylmer, QC, just across the river from the Capital:
"It's beengreat in Hamilton. We were working on something to bring me back. There was an intention to re-sign. but, I got to free agency and Ottawa was the best fit for me. I have a lot of respect for Hamilton ... the organization and the players."
