We all love to play GM. Here is my attempt to play GM of the Argos. Fell free to bash, agree, or play GM yourself with this thread.
The Argos got Ray and put together a team to win the Grey Cup this season. Now that the season is over what will they do to keep them a dominant team during the Ricky Ray Window.
DBs: Watkins, Mccoulough, and Horne all came to the Argos in different ways but have solidified themselves. Ahmaad Carroll was one of those one and done pieces that will need to be replaced and have groomed young jahlil Carter to take is spot. Younger was needed to hold it all together but it is time for Matt Black to take over and backe up by Boulay making the safety spot strong experienced and a ratio position.
LBs: Ball and Issac are solid to return to the starting lineup. MLB Robert McCune had a great season but he is 34 years old. I like free agent James Yurichuk the NI out of BC. He is primed to be a starter but got caught behind to great MLBs in BC. A proactive move with Yurichuk in his prime and vet Pottinger to Back him up.
DLine: Will take a little thought i do not see Foley being resigned and The Argos will not get in Armsteads way and allow him to go to the NFL. The Dline will be a focus for Jones and the defense.
Offensive Line: after the Argos line took a lot of flack all season long they banded together when it counted. Bookend Tackles Import Tony washington LT and van zyle RT are solid. Eppele will get first shot at RG and reinders RG are guys they are invested in. Keeping at Center will need to be upgraded.
Rec: Rambo will not be coming back. Inman, Barnes, Mann, and Owens stay on as Import receivers. most likley Watt will be let go in free ageancy. Bradwell is solid and felio - guadino will get his shot to go along with Durie as NI receivers.
RB : Kackert will be a guy they want back and in the small CFL even being the Grey Cup MVP his options are limited which will work in the argos favor.
FB/TE Going off the board a bit with Crandell coming in as OC he saw how effective a TE who can not only block but catch is very dangerous. Daryl Stephanson will fit that Lavoi role perfectly.
Back up QB: Also going off the board. Jackson dropped the ball and when ray was out Jackson did not perform and nearly cost them a playoff spot. Trevor Harris and Zach Callaros may be the future but they will need a veteran to back up a vetaeran. A QB that knows that west coast offense. JT O' Sullivan will be a great fit although many will laugh at me he knows that offense he is well traveled and experienced in many leagues and has the same prcision passing that Ray has.
Returner: Owens got his records for all purpose yards but he has now also become one of the top receivers in the CFL so it is time to pass the return torch at the very least he will be giving up kick Off returns. Toronto Quincy Hurst was drafted by the Argos released officially for awhile and then finshed the year on the practice roster. He is a return specialist and a size clone to Owens. As speedster like owens and a NI the Argos will give him a shot at grooming into a return specialist staring with KO returns along with also being a possible gunner on the punt team. speed speed speed and Hurst has it.
Bash Me, agree with me form your own opinions. I am board with not a lot going on seemed like a good topic
