Likely because he's our best DB, knows it and wants too much $$ for Austin to agree to.

Sad if we lose him. I'd rather we have one less player on the roster and pay him more than lose him to another team.


I'm sure that the Ticats made him an offer and his agent has said, "let's see what other teams will offer you and we will take the best one"
Just like the dozens of other free agents on all of the teams, the player's agents advise them to wait and see what other offers are out there.

You're fly right slimjim. It's a business. The team has to manager its budget. The players and their agents want to get the best contract they can. Often, that means switching teams. Fans may not always like it, but that's the way it goes in a free agency league. Having said that, I hope he re-signs with us.

Well looking at each team's list and who might or might not become available I have constructed a top 12 player list from the other 8 teams who I think we should look at and attempt to sign. The list is based on what I think are areas on our team that are weaknesses and need upgrading and also factoring in our own list of potential FA's and who we might lose to other teams in the process. I've also looked at our team's list (which at 23 players is the biggest in the league) and did a top 12 list of players that I feel we should target and hopefully re-sign. I know that we won't re-sign them all but hopefully we can sign up at least half of them for the upcoming season. Anyways , the lists are below , have a look and let's see how things go today ( fingers crossed :o ) Hopefully we'll have more of these today :thup: and not too many of these :thdn: . Just a little under 3 hours and counting , the clock is ticking. Get er done Cats ! :D

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.

Sears, yes. I'd keep Murray if it were up to me, especially if they can't get Davis' name on a new contract.

I like Murray for his DB/LB hybrid ability and versatility. Plus he seems to be one of our few DBs who can make an open field tackle. Sears is just too injury prone for my liking, but he does play well when he does play. I think he would have to be signed on some sort of incentive/playing time deal, if that is permissible? So, concentrate on Murray, let Sears go if necessary.

Almost two hours in and so far the scorecard is reading Bombers 2 Cats 0 :( Come on Kent , sign SOMEBODY , ANYBODY !!! Let us know yer out there. I wonder now with Nevis gone if maybe we don't go after Al Michael Cash ?
I'm also seeing tweets that it's not looking good for C02's return and that Woodson is also looking gonzo as well.

If they can somehow bring Sink back home it'll be CO who ? Never heard of him :) Don't be surprised if you see Owens head back down the road and re-sign with the Boat Anchors once again. :lol:

The TWOCOLOURS have released kicker Chris Milo . Being as he has a Canadian Passport might be a nice signing if we lose Maher elsewhere. It would also free up an import spot on our roster for more flexibility with the ratio and DI positions.
