From Cat Chat:
Sit down for this one Tabbie fans. Jason Armstead is gone.
GM Bob O'Billovich told me Friday morning that the Cats had cut the high-paid but high-skilled import receiver mainly because of contract concerns.
Obie wanted to re-sign Armstead - presumably at a lot less than he makes now - but the former Renegade and Saskatchewan receiver balked and insisted he would play out his option this season and become a free agent in February.
Obie said he wanted no part of that given he wants to rebuild the Cat receiving corps starting now.
Big news! I agree with Ken that our receiveing core lack CFL experience. But I also dont think it was a secret that Armstead was making a lot of money.
Also, what is with Ken's crush on Getzlaf? If his brother didnt play in the NHL, I would even know who he was. He was a 5th round pick, didnt play here or in Sask so whats the deal?
