If the Montreal Alouettes were to not offer QB Adrian McPherson a contract, or he walks to become a free agent (i would if i were him), the Edmonton Eskimos should (imo) go after him and sign him. McPherson brings much more then just passing to the Edmonton Eskimos offence. He can run the WildCat formation better then ANY current CFL QB. He is also the best QB in the league who can run the ball. Now i know alot of people think he's no good (all of a sudden) because he didnt really light it up in his only start at QB in 2012. So what. Thats one game. Bring him in, create an offence around him and allow him to use his feet to his advantage. The Lions backup QB Mike Rielly would be the 2nd best option.
Having a 1-2 punch in Nichols/McPherson or Rielly would give Edmonton much needed depth at the postion. One they have not had since Ray/Mass. Nichols would likely be the starter going forward in 2013, but it sure wouldnt hurt to have McPherson/Rielly in your back pocket incase of any setback. Im not saying Nichols/McPherson or Rielly would be as good as the 1-2 punch of Ray/Mass. Time would tell.
Another interesting story is Kevin Glenn in Calgary. With him benched after a 10-6 season, he may want to try his luck elsewhere. Now of course a return to Winnipeg seems right (i just dont see it though). But if you lose out on McPherson & then Rielly, Glenn would certainly be an upgrade from Kerry Joseph as the backup. Quinton Porter (Ticats backup QB), is also a free agent. I would have NO interest in him.
