Who would you rather bring in to push Matt Nichols for the starting job, in 2013?
Mike Reilly, 6ft 3" 215lbs, 1985-01-25

Adrian McPherson, 6ft 3" 220lbs, 1983-05-08
CFL Player Page: http://cfl.ca/roster/show/id/2827
Passing Stats: 145 Comp, 243 Att, 59.7%, 1505 yards, 10 TD's, 6 INT's, Rating 81.1

*Notes: 50% of the Media says McPherson is a freeagent in 2013, 50% of the Media says 2014 (we'll find out in Decemeber).
Mike Reilly is the SAME type of QB as Matt Nichols. I believe Nichols can throw a better ball then Reilly, it would be interesting to see the battle between two similar guys. Although, imo, id rather see Edmonton sign/trade for Adrian McPherson. McPherson is a big strong, quick rusher who brings a dual threat to any CFL team at QB. I would like to see the Eskimos run a completley different offence around McPherson. When teams blitz McPherson, he can use his legs to open things up down field. Unlike the average QB. Would Montreal allow McPherson to go with AC on the verge of retirement? It will be interesting.
Mike Reilly signs for big bucks in Winnipeg. Adrian McPherson stays in Montreal with AC likely retiring. If AC does not retire, McPherson will NOT wait one more year and will want out. Giving Edmonton a window to make a deal at a lower price. No other team will likely want McPherson, as everyone else has a starter (if Reilly goes to Winnipeg). Trading McPherson is not the end of the world for Montreal. Who is also very high on their other young QB's in Josh Neiswander, Stephen Garica & a few on their NEG List.
