I think Bernard Yverson has to come into the mix as well. I don't know too much about him, but people who do seem to think pretty highly of him. I think him ad West are a good combo. Reynolds is a fabulous player, and has a great attitude. If he could be brought in at a decent price that would be great, but if you are going to bring in another guy I would like to see some a bit of a younger guy like Reid...but yeah, I like Reynold because he is a fabulous player and does not seem to come with any ego.
As far as picking up a great Canadian RB...What about someone like Jamall Lee? I have also heard from some friends that the Stamps have another Canadian RB in the system that many are saying might be even better that Cornish...don't recall the name at the moment.
Personally if Reid or Reynolds doesn't work out for the right price I would look down south for an unemployed RB and sign Cates on for a reduced rate...you have to think he would understand and take it. There is actually a plethora of RBs down south this year, and it is going to be a RB rich draft, so there will be some good guys available to look at.
