Unless he's planning to retire soon I think he still has plenty of rocket sauce left in the bottle, enough to keep people interested I'm sure. An off year won't help for the $$$ side of things, as you say.
Bang on. Lauther should be there. As for Harris, the Bombers have already stated it'd be difficult to keep 3 National RB's. They signed Borsa, another Cdn RB, & Oliveira & Augustine are also free agents. IMO the writing's on the wall.
Erlington-Thomas better than Muamba, Judge, Boateng, Cottoy? Those guys are all difference makers, ratio busters too. I'm surprised to see him in the top 10, let alone #2. Maybe it's me - I don't see it. I would have still had Laurent there but can see why not. He's 34 but big loss in the GC game. Where's O'Donnell? CFLPA All-star & wasn't he in top 30 CFL free agents? Should be here IMO. Other than #2 & O'Donnell not there somewhere can't argue much with the rankings.
I too, agree with Capital_Dave, for all the reasons he gave. Its a battle out there in that position and he may even be leaning towards retirement, on a high note. However, wouldn't put it past him coming back and having another fantastic season. Think in the Blue Bombers case, they have two young running backs (Canadians) that I'd like to see get more playing time this year.
Yeah I was surprised to see Thomas-Erlington that high. He was great for helping out Donny get some rest on the run. With Papi White being soo versatile, I dunno unless its having that ratio flexibility I could see him somewhere else.
