so the list was released today and not many of the players we thought would be on it are there. However there are some players we should pounce on such as Matt Dominguez and Reggie Hunt. We should also resign Armour ASAP and look into Tom Canada. I think Chip Cox would be a good addition and i'm not really sure which o-linemen are good.
Here is the list
i agree with you and we should also look into resigning gordon right away
I agree with ticats111. I'd also like to see us pursue Tony Miles...i know hes an argo but he was a pretty good receiver.
PS Not that I'd want him but isn't that list missing Rahim Abdullah?
I thought Rambo was FA too but not on the list.
Canada, Cox, and Armour would be my big 3.
I also thought Arland Bruce was up?
I think we should definitely go after Eddie Davis, Chip Cox and Dario Romero. Those three would instantly boost the front and back ends of our D.
I also think we should re-sign Armour.
And I could see the Cats making a run at Goodspeed, too.
well heres my list of who we should go after(no order after #1)
Matt Dominguea and Reggie Hunt both have decent jobs in Saskatchewan. They might be hard to pry from the Riders unless they are made an exceptionally good offer. I would expect Reggie to go to BC if he did leave to play with his Brother. I don't see Canada leaving Winipeg either but you never know.
Dominguez while a great reciever is very injury prone . You put Lumsden down for his injuries last season but you want to sign 2 recievers who while they have great talent are hurt ALL the time . Miles has been hurt most of the past 2 seasons !!!
I hate to say it but we might have to trade or hope for a rookie in terms of WR.
We need Goodspeed, Bradley, Cox, Beveridge, and Hunt.
thats a pretty nice secondary
The main reason for the shrinking list was the huge spike in re-signings during last year's Grey Cup week as teams reconfigured their payrolls to conform with the SMS. This year is the fallout of that.
Nonetheless, I would expect that list to expand because teams will release some players who do not fit into their plans and to set their FA offer budgets.
Oski Wee Wee,
Based on the free agents available there are only a few elite prospects.Canada,Hunt,Davis are the elite and Dominquez(injuries only reason not elite) Armour Miles and Cox are mid level. Geroy and Bruce must be in there option year because they are not on the list. I think a trade will be only way to get a #1 reciever. I'll resign Bradly and Gordon and go after Cox! The biggest need is reciever!
Let the discussions begin.

Good list. Thing is, of course, these are POTENTIAL free agents... their current teams have them until mid-February and have exclusive negotiating rights until then.
Re our potential free agents, I would like to see us emphasize re-signing Armour, Beveridge and Bradley. Gordon too for that matter.
How about letting Mike O'Shea finish his career as a Ticat?
How about poking a needle in my eye?
