Wow. I am shocked about Rycker Mathews. Not shocked that Alex Singleton signed in the NFL.This year Calgary wilk be taking a huge hit. Singleton being a dominant CFL All-Star middle linebacker and being a national is a painfull loss.
Here are the most likely remaining free agents who could sign in the NFL:
Bo Levi Mitchell
M. Awe ( BC )
Any thoughts ? I know Ebert is getting older but still could play Safety in the NFL.
Reilly may sign in Calgary when Mitchell goes to the NFL Ellingson has size, great hands and some speed and 4 straight 1,000 yard seasons. I think he garners some attention though some may think he is not strong or fast enough .
I think guys like Jefferson and J’Gared Davis could get looks at outside linebacker.
I hope teams deem Breaux as too much of an injury risk though we are paying him very handsomely at 200 k
which is about 50 k a year more than any other DB in the CFL.
It should be interesting to see how things play out. I think Calgary will drop in the standings with all their expected losses. I think Edmonton will be toast next year likely losing Reilly to BC, Calgary or the NFL and Likely Derrek Walker while the top CFL receiver Duke Williams is already gone to Buffalo. If WPG can keep Bighill then they would be the team to beat in the West next year alongside Sask especially if SASK can sign Jefferson and get a decent QB.
I think the Ticats can challenge Ottawa in the east since they lost Dionte Spencer and could lose Ellingson and Ebert. If we can sign Banks, Dean, Simoni and Breaux at a minimum ,we should be in decent shape .
With a great new management team with Head Coach Orlando calling the shots and June Jones focusing soley on offence and having CFL Veteran DB and Defensive Co-odinator running our defence in Mark Washington and the return of Reinbold to special teams all should improve the three phases of the game. Signing Palmer and Saunders early on was huge .
Let’s hope there is no strike.
