KHARI JONES - to sign with Blue Bombers tomorrow?

I got word from a close source to Khari Jones that the Blue Bombers contacted his agent 2 days ago, and today the agent and the bombers went over contract talks.

Word is the deal could get done by tomorrow but a stumbling block is guarenteed money for this season, and Khari wanting a 2 year deal. A 2 year deal would allow Khari a better chance to be picked up by a expansion team, as possible rules would have Ottawa picking at least 3 QB's from current CFL rosters.

There is also a possibility that Khari might sign a 2 year deal and become a QB assitant coach with Doug Berry next season, and his contract would not count in the new salary management system if the salary is picked up before Feb 1 /

Oski Wee Pennywise,

I hate clowns, but I'm dying here... :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

Keep those made up stories coming, it makes for great entertainment. :lol: I think its called "thinking outside the box". :slight_smile: I'd be surprised Khari can still get it done, his arm looked finished to me.

Maybe he just reads these articles and starts his own rumors...

KHARI A POPULAR CHOICE

Some of you agree with me, 100%. Others wonder what I've been smoking.

But there was no shortage of reaction to yesterday's column suggesting
the Blue Bombers bring back quarterback Khari Jones.

The e-mail box, the voice mail and the Sun's web poll were all humming, and the vast majority of respondents say Jones would be an improvement over anybody the Bombers currently have filling in for injured Kevin Glenn.

One caller said all he's been hearing at the Stadium lately is chants of "Bring back Khari Jones," and he hopes it happens.

By 8 p.m. yesterday, 480 fans had responded to our web poll, 74%
saying the Bombers should bring the 35-year-old out of retirement.

There doesn't seem to be any middle ground on the issue, though.

One e-mailer suggested Jones, the CFL's top player in 2001, was never
that good to begin with, saying he dumped his season tickets because
the Bombers stuck with Jones for so long.

"If you were a coach of the Bombers and had any notion of bringing him
back, I'd fire you also," he wrote. "Don't make me want to give up my
season tickets again."

Another suggested I wasn't thinking clearly when I wrote the column.

"Hey Paul, you're not eating any of those 'Trumpets of Doom' are you?"
he asked. "It would explain your hallucinations of wanting the Bombers
to bring back Khari Jones!"

No, I haven't been nibbling on any funny-looking flowers.

I just think Jones would have produced more than four offensive points
over the last seven quarters, that's all.

And when Glenn comes back, old No. 17 would make a great sideline
mentor, an extra pair of eyes that might be able to provide the odd
tip, a la Danny McManus in Calgary.

Sure, it's possible Mike Quinn or Brad Banks will be better next time.

But if they're not, Glenn is out two to four more weeks, by which time
the Bombers could fall to third place in the East.

It would just seem right, too, to see Jones finish his career in blue
and gold, even if it's as a backup.

Unable to crack Edmonton's roster this season, Jones has been working
as a sideline reporter for games on CBC television.

Reached in Calgary this week, he didn't totally rule out playing
again.

"If a team feels like they need me and I feel good about that
situation, then it's something that might happen," he said. "But it's
still a might after that."

So far, the Bombers haven't called him.

Like I said yesterday, why not?

working on the side lines for cbc... didn't khari drop the mic?

It's really surprising though how fast Kharis' skills dropped off. It's a real shame.

If it were true we would have a real chance of overtaking Winnipeg in the race for third. :lol:
