The MontrealAlouettesannounced on Sunday that the club has extended international quarterbacksAntonio Pipkin,Vernon Adams Jr.andJeff Mathews‘ contracts. Adams Jr. and Pipkin signed two-year extensions and will remain with theAlouettesin 2019 and 2020, while Mathews signed a one-year deal through 2019.
No Drew Willy?
Seriously, obviously good to see Pipkin extended.
There is going to be QB upheaval throughout the CFL this off season. I can even see Manziel traded to Sask. where Collaros is going to end up punch drunk with all the hits he has taken, and Bridge has shown to be a bust.
We might see Shiltz share time with Manziel next week.
Im still curious to see what he can do, dont think we ever saw a large enough sample size. I certainly think he is better than Adams.
“They told me they were going to get Pip and Matt(hew) Shiltz some reps through the end of the season,? said Manziel following the victory, his first in the Canadian Football League. “I did some good things, did some bad things, but I’m feeling more comfortable every week. I thought Pip did a good job as well today.?
Boivin and Reed were out there before the game doing interviews on RDS and it is very, very obvious they are coming back. Sherman told Muamba he’s coming back. I don’t think any of them will get contract extension but they will play out the last year of their deal.
While I am 100% positive- my own impression- that Kavis Reed and Mike Sherman will return, I nevertheless agree that there will be no contract extension. They both will play their career,at least in Montreal.
While these 2 will return, there will be changes in the coaching staff and on football operations.Bye,bye Joe Mack and Russ Lande and certainly others.
One major positive "item’ is that the QB situation,contrary to previous years, is settled. Concentration will be on receivers, defensive ends and a few LB’s and DB’s.
