Davis was not even dressing and carried a large salary. Negative trade value. He will perhaps thrive with another team but he was not given that chance down the stretch here. Good to hear JC back on board. A nice National rotational D-Lineman.
Overall a good news announcement.
Well I guess that whichever team eventually signs Davis will be winning the Cup this year . I mean isn't that what always happen with ex Ti-Cat players when we let them go ?
All kidding aside I'm sure that Chop won't be unemployed for very long . Somebody will scoop him up . I'm sorry but not really surprised to see him let go . It was rather obvious that when Jones took over that Davis wasn't one of his favourites . It became rather apparent when he was healthy scratched the last 5 games of the season as Jones went with the rooks in the backfield instead of the more experienced E.D.
Dropping Davis gives us some more cap room . Being a healthy scratch after a previous all star season makes you wonder. Good luck to Chop in Toronto . I'm assuming that's where he'll land . The Argos seem to like our DBs .
There were 3 TiCats "goats" in the '15 Eastern Final --The one who couldn't catch a ball thrown right at him, the one who couldn't cover (or terribly misjudged the flight of the ball), and the one who couldn't tackle. Shortly after, the team allowed two of them to go elsewhere and then, unfortunately, hung onto the the third to miss many more tackles over two more seasons. Now they're all gone.
The Capicciotti signing is an important one among our potential F.A.s.
I liked ED when he was at the top of his game, but injuries turned him into a different player. Davis was basically in the same boat as Collaros...lots of nicks, big contract, no production. He had to go. The cash can be better spent on re-signing guys like Tasker, or free agent targets.
Capiciotti's signing (and the development of McGough behind Capiciotti) might mean that the Ticats are willing to let Laurent walk.
