Because they had a great opportunity to pick up a better linebacker for nothing. What was his name again? Oh yeah, JoJuan Armour. How funny is this if we end up with Coe?
Having said that, he was an excellent linebacker for Calgary and was a starter for several seasons. How come no one has signed him? I have no idea. Players get cut. You can say that about any player. If he's so good, how come his former team didn't want him. You could say that any time you're making a trade. If this guy is any good, why would you trade him? I really think he just lost his position to the Big Dog.
For some reason I'm thinking Coe has a knee problem. Can anyone confirm or refute this? I'd welcome a look at him. If you're going to start a Canadian at linebacker, Coe may be the guy you want. I'm not sold on Mariuz, and never was. I'm really concerned about lack of size in our linebackers. They are solid tacklers, but no run stoppers that can really lay the smack down.
Bringing in a guy or two isn't a revolving door. Taffe did say that he didn't want to have a revolving door, but if an opportunity came up for a good player or two you'd have to take a look.
