The Saskatchewan Roughriders’ linebackers were a bright spot in a season in which the lights flickered out weeks ago.

Don't know about Dean but Sankey was with the Stamps last year as a rookie and was outstanding there. He decided to move on, for more $$$ or just a Change (maybe both). So if the Riders are going to keep Sankey I would expect he will be demanding a whole lot more $$$. Dean should also be looking for an increase depending upon his present contract.
That will leave less for an improved badily needed O line. And then there is getting another QB, which won't be cheap if he has any talent.
Sorry but looks to me like the Riders will need some heavy funds for next year.
