Another veteran player released

Another veteran CFL player released probably due to the salary cap .

This time veteran LB Jackie Mitchell is released after 7 years with the Roughriders . A very good OLB to be sure . He will be a free agent come the middle of February .

Wont he be a free agent now?

he's free to sign with any team, any league now

Does anyone think we'll bring him in? Or are we happy with Armour, Mariuz, Nattiel and Hitchcock at OLB?

Every veteran cast adrift gets cheaper with time.

After Charlie signs a Defensive Co-ordinator
and the 2 of them have time to evaluate film
on the players we already have under contract,

and if Marcel thinks Mitchell is worth pursuing,

we will see what happens.

We have lots of time.
