Great suggestions by all.
The way I see it though;
As good as Marquay McDaniel is and is performing … Receiver is not necessarily an area in need of upgrade. That also negates Aaron Kelly. As far as depth when it comes to NI receivers, I would say that players like Carter, Kohlert, Charbonneau-Campeau, would be valuable. But again, I don’t see that as a huge area of need or upgrade that would impact results.
Chevon Walker is playing well as the featured back in Ottawa. But do you play him over CJ? Answer is No. Can you play him as a back-up to CJ? I think they’ve tried under 2 different regimes and he had his chance & it didn’t work. CJ with Mossis as backup and playing teams is a solid tandem. So I don’t see keeping Chevon as a solid upgrade.
A name that hasn’t been mentioned is John Delahunt. I’d say he would have a significant role in the team’s offense and could be an impact player and one that’s been hard to replace.
I immediately mentioned Greg Peach since it’s universally agreed here that the TiCats pass rush is substandard. I’ll agree that Greg did not make the best of his tenure here in Hamilton. I will take issue with those that believe he didn’t work hard. I personally believe he worked & tried very hard. Did he come here with a BIG contract? Yes. Did it work out? No. He’s not unique in that occurrence.
I will admit my bias though. Greg has always been really good to me and especially my step-daughter. Very personable & engaging & nice. I always saw him as a true professional when it came to work ethic & dedication. It didn’t work out here in Hamilton but I’m glad to see it working out in Winnipeg.
As far as other players and areas, I don’t see players that have been released under the Austin Era as having significant success elsewhere or being able to first make this team or contribute significantly in a manner that would’ve changed the team’s fortunes’.
