Looking at the list of potential free agents from other teams:http://cfl.ca/page/2012-free-agent-tracker
So, who would you want to consider perhaps making an offer to ?
I’d look at some of the following:
From Toronto: Willie Pile and Byron Parker;
From Hamilton: Justin Hickman and Garrett McIntyre, but I expect the NFL aspirations will rule them out for the time being;
From Winnipeg: No one really jumps out at me here; Don Oramasionwu would be perhaps worth a look, but with Doug Brown having retired, I fully expect the Bombers will re-sign him and he won’t hit F/A
From Regina: Jerrell Freeman is the only one on their list that I’d have interest in, but again I think NFL aspirations will rule him out for now
From Edmonton: Rod Davis and Greg Peach
From Calgary: pass
From BC: Aaron Hunt, but again the NFL will rule him out I should think.
Now obviously with the cap we aren’t going to go after all of those. . . so to prioritize, the top 4 I’d want to talk to when F/A begins are Parker and Pile to help shore up our secondary, and Davis and Peach from Edmonton. We’re not too bad off in terms of LBs, but I think Davis is one of the most underrated players in the CFL, and would represent an upgrade over either Emry or Guzman at MLB (I think I prefer Guzman at OLB anyway). Peach I’d value for his versatility, in that he can play rush end or one of the OLB spots in a pinch (sort of like Kitwana Jones and I think Jones is past his best before date; Peach isn’t).
Your thoughts, gang?
