Most free agents want more money.
Kwame Cavil just wants more playing time.
Despite making seven catches for 107 yards and two touchdowns in two games this season, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers benched Cavil for the last two regular-season games and their playoff loss to Toronto on Sunday.
He was essentially a victim of the CFL ratio. The Bombers could start either Cavil or Chris Brazzell at slotback, and they picked Brazzell.
It was a good move by the Bombers, as Brazzell had a touchdown catch in all three games, but Cavil won't come back under the same arrangement.
"I'd love to come back here," Cavil said. "I'm comfortable here, but it takes more than just wanting to come back here to get me here. I didn't play in the playoffs, so evidently they weren't comfortable with something.
"Until they square that issue away with me, there isn't too much I can do. I got a family to feed. But I like it here."
Cavil and Brazzell are both slated to become free agents in February. Cavil, however, makes about $35,000 less than Brazzell's $125,000 annual salary, so he might be a better financial fit.
"I got no reason not to come back here, but everybody's got families," Cavil said. "I can't be sitting out no playoff games no more. I can't sit out any games no more, I'm sorry."
