This is a real tough question and should come down to how much he is asking for and what our other national options are. I think having a national or two nationals as your kickers is extremely beneficial in that you can dress more imports to play special teams and play in certain situations or used as a backup in case of injury.
The perfect case is what Calgary has two elite veteran national kickers.
I feel the ticats will take the easy way out and sign him as it would be tough to find a better national kicker that can do both jobs or two national kickers to be punter and field goal kicker.
If it were me , I would search far and wide for a replacement or replacement candidates and may the best guy or guys win in training camp.
Our goal is to win the Grey Cup and I feel Lirium has made far too many blunders to justify the high salary or to be trusted to perform when needed.
My gut feeling is that he cannot be trusted and we can spend the money elsewhere.
Josh Bartell was an excellent national punter who rarely made mistakes and often pinned the opponent in their ten yard line something Lirium rarely does.
Castillo and Medlock pretty much had perfect seasons for us but yes they are imports and Medlock would cost alot.
Signing Lirum would be overpaying and settling for a below average punter and place kicker.
