Dan Comiskey and Shannon Garrett should both be retired.

I thought I caught most of those... I guess not!

The Bombers have told James Johnson and Steven Holness that they will not be offered new contracts.

...too bad about Holness....i was never impressed with James Johnson......now Byron Parker is an interesting prospect.. :wink:

....and oh yeah.....Jovon Johnson has re-signed with the Bombers today.. :thup:

Papa if you had Johnson on one corner and Parker on the other, that would be a fearsome combo. Beats Johnson and Craver, anyway.

i agree,MadJack...probably why we'll make a big pitch for him.....Dancing Danny better get his money-bag ready/// :lol:

I can also see Hamilton making a run at Parker (they lost one corner, Bo Smith, to the NFL and Paker's way better than Smith anyway). . . so you'll certainly see a bit of a bidding war for his services.

Sandy Beveridge and Yannick Carter re-signed with the Cat's today.

Holness was on the 9 game DI all of last season. I found a mention in an article from TC that he was injured but never did find out what that injury was. Perhaps that had something to do with it.

WOO HOO!! regarding the re-signing of Jovon Johnson!! :rockin:

The Bombers Derrick Doggett has signed an NFL deal with Pittsburgh:

It's kind of interesting... it seems to be the same three teams signing players... Indy, Miami, and Pittsburgh.

The Indy connection is Cal Murphy, who is their Canadian scout. I'm not sure about the other teams, although Miami maybe realized there was a ton a talent in the CFL when they picked up Cam Wake last season.

Cal Murphy’s son is a scout for the Miami Dolphins.
