With a few new injuries we have 9 on PR...........2 are the local non counters. So there is plenty of room on PR to restock with 4-5 NFL cuts. The PR also grows to 12-14 here right away.
So O'day and the scouts should be really busy trying to sign some bodies. Guys on neg list I sure they are watching closely.
Have not seen it or read it. Heard Jones (OL) was cut. He'll look around for 10 days like any FA for further NFL chances but his agent will also be tapping CFL to set the stage if he decides to return. This is the player we passed over for Watman.............and I want to see Watman play more and if he flops.............move on.
Riders have loads of cap space and they need to take a huge run at this player. He can play guard or centre and I would install him at centre because he is the upgrade we need there. I am not sold on Dan Clark as long term solid centre. I think he's there cause we didn't have an alternative (likely Picard got let go one year too early......Taman move).
Our OL is back to 3 Nationals and 2 imports. One of our imports right now (Randy Richards) appears to be quite a selfish individual and he will have to play amazingly well to quiet me down. He took an unnecessary roughness in Ottawa and of course the clothesline on Tim Brown (game ejection). That in two games............see ya!
The rebuild starts with National OL. Jones would be an immense boost to this requirement.
O'Day is past centre and might speak this kids language.
Jones is from Saskie (we might get a Homer call).
$$$ we have lots to toss at him and he'll be in the $200K range.
No HC and GM right now.............basically no mans land to decide about your next 3-4 years of career
Calgary...........I am sure he has some loyalty and I assume the Stamps treated him well.
Calgary wants this kid back likely more than we want him. He can immediately compete for GC run
I don't like our chances landing him but the pursuit needs to be done aggressively. Maybe we get an early Christmas gift. So O'Day is pressed hard right now to get results. We'll see how he does.
