Wonder what the pick is? Probably a 5th or later and conditions are likely that he rosters...if so not a bad move

Might be something like this, if Edem gets cut by Sask then no draft pick, if Edem starts between 1 and 5 games then BC gets a 7th round, If Edem starts 6-10 games then BC gets a 4th round, If Edem starts all 18 games BC gets 2 round pick from Sask. etc. (taken from CFL.ca forum)

W AAAA AAAA LLLLLL YYYYYY

"Get off the field Wally" - sorry could not resist.

Hate Wally, but he's not stupid. Makes me wonder why Wally got rid of him.

Hope he sticks around and makes an immediate positive impact for the Riders.

Well...from what I have heard there were multiple teams bidding on him in free agency and the only reason he is not a Ti-Cat again was that Wally was in a position to bid more that they could do. According to Rod's blog today they actually exchanged conditional draft picks...so the Lions likely ended up +1 round in a pick...not a hefty price most likely for a guy that if released (which was coming) would have been receiving multiple offers. I am assuming the Rider condition is that he re-signs/re-negotiates and makes the roster....not sure what BC's would be...perhaps it is a this or that round pick dependent on draft order (ie if the Riders actually finish ahead of the Lions then the would receive say a 4th instead of a 5th rounder.

I think they are going to look at him at LB...they might end up with 2 NI LBs, so 4+ on D ratio wise...which is interesting. From what I have heard Edem is a good teammate (I was starting to wonder because it is what 4 teams now)...but you start looking at the players that Wally has brought in in the past bit and you start seeing that this is more than anything most likely a reballancing of SMS for him
