At the end of last season, counting reserve, injured and practice rosters there were 61 Tiger-Cats. After adding the 3 LB's and cutting 4 players on April 28th, there are again 61 on the roster. When you look at the off-season changes at each position, do you think they've made us better? How much? And where?
Line - 2 gone -- Goodspeed, Gagne-Marcoux. 2 added -- Jimenez, Morencie
Backfield - 2 gone --Ebell, Pavlovic. No additions
Receivers - 2 gone -- Rodriguez, Ball. 4 added -- Mann, Nicolson, Valberg, Smith (who was on the PR late last season)
Line - 1 gone -- Murphy. 2 added -- NIP rookies Dalloul, Gilbert
LB's - 2 gone -- Haley, Robichaud. 3 Added -- Hargrave, Myles, Corey Smith
DB's - 4 gone -- Thompson, Gordon, Bo Smith, Lamont Reid. 4 added -- Shivers, Poole, Dennis, Wladichuk
Setta gone. DeAngelis added.
My feeling is that we are better at receiver, we may be with the DB's, and, if we get a very good NIP punter, who can also back up DeAngelis' kicking, we'll be better in the kicking game. But, overall I don't think the additions, so far, add up to what you could call a big improvement. Maybe the best is yet to come among the unannounced signings, including a game-breaker returner and an outstanding rush end.
