VANCOUVER — The BC Lions’ leading receiver isn’t going anywhere. The BC Lions have signed American Dominique Rhymes to a one-year extension that keeps him in Orange and Black through 2024. Rhymes was eligible to become a free agent after the 2023 season.
If you are good for a team and you want a big raise over your present contract, but the Team won't comply then the answer has just been supplied by Rhymes.
Demand a trade !
How many more in this league will act this way and dishonor their signed contract because they want more than what they agreed to?
Where is the dishonor?
Rhymes asked to be traded and the Leos can either oblige his request or refuse it.
Clearly the Lions felt he deserved a raise that was satisfactory to both parties and is an important cog on the team.
As all players, Rhymes has right to request a trade, a raise or even sit out his contract if he so wishes.
That being said, coaches and Football execs under contract are regularly on the move and with near unanimous approval from the bosses.
considering that he was the 2nd in rec yards this season and Dunbar rumored to get 200k from edm, White got 230-240ish form Hamilton G.Lewis who was 3rd got about 300k ish from Edmonton and Rhymes had more rec yards then him i can see why he would be mad
i’m not happy with his maneuver because i think he was capitalizing on his year when Rourke was here. i know he still had decent stats after Rourke was hurt but i would not be surprised if last year was his ceiling. i hope he is the go to guy and steps up again now that Burnham has retired. i’m expecting Lucky to have a better year now that he’s healthy, and i think Hatcher takes another step. but Adams won’t be distributing the ball like Rourke does. the Lions really need a running back now that Butler is off to the ticats.
