So now that the Riders are officially eliminated from the playoffs, it's time to start an evaluation of current players for the 2016 season. And this includes players that will become free agents. Who are these players? What decisions should O'Day (interim) and Dyce (interim) make? Will they make decisons for the betterment of the organization or the betterment of their resume? Let's get a discussion on this....
Here's a few that come to mind for me (in no particular order), and I am likely missing some.
Corey Watman - First Round 4th overall pick - has been a back up Offensive Lineman for 3 years because he can't seem to win a job from anyone else. Rumour has it he likes Saskatchewan, but is a free agent. I thought he played decent enough against Hamilton last night at centre, but the Riders have Dan Clark signed there.. What do they do?
Dylan Ainswirth - Second Round 11th overall. He has been a beast at special teams, however has seen very limited time on the defensive line. In fact CC had Connop/Tennant starting over Ainsworth earlier this season. And last night, after Hall goes down, they still don't start him there to see what he's got... What's the MO on him and is he a keeper?
Kevin Glenn - he has played forever and for almost every team... Do they resign him for insurance against DD going down again? Or do they trade him if they can or outright release him?
Paul McCallum - old as dirt and is starting to miss... Do you bring him back?
Ryan Smith - not sure if he becomes an FA or not? Just remember reading other posts saying we need to get this guy locked up longer term....
Am I missing anyone?
