Interesting comment by Marcel Desjardins. If Jesse Lumsden is slated to be the main ball carrier in 2007, it could either mean that:
The Ticats are already aware that Corey Holmes does not intend to sign here for the 2007 season, or;
If the Ticats can sign Corey Holmes, they intend to utilize him in the manner he was used in Saskatchewan where he was the primary kick returner as well as a "supersub" at running back and slotback.
In the first scenario, Josh Ranek, a solid running back whom I believe has two years remaining on his three year contract, could still play an important role on this Ticat team. However, it will be difficult to find a meaningful role for Ranek if the second scenario occurs.
