According to June Jones the deal is already done, It is up to Vernon and his agent to pick where he wants to go. MTL or EDM
HAMILTON — June Jones says the Ticats will trade quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. to one of two teams. The head coach said a deal would be made on Thursday, with Edmonton and Montreal both being involved in trade talks and the rest being up to Adams’ agent. “Vernon, had a real good talk with him. We’re talking trade with two teams actually and it should be done by the time I get back into meetings, but I’m kind of leaving it up to his agent.?
Adams, 25, was traded to the Ticats as part of the shuffle that sent Charleston Hughes to Saskatchewan. The Oregon product has three CFL seasons under his belt, thorwing for 583 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.
He was made expendable after the Ticats signed Johnny Manziel, dropping Adams to third on the depth chart behind Manziel and starter Jeremiah Masoli. “As soon as we signed Johnny it changed, that’s what I told Vernon,? said Jones. “I love Vernon, he’s a great kid. He played really well for me in the East-West Shrine Game. Everything in this league changes so fast, that’s what I told him — ‘maybe in two years you’ll be right back with me’ and that’s just how this is. “The numbers changed so fast when we signed Johnny, that’s how it went out.?
I don't mind Jones being open and upfront but that is just plain bad business mentioning the 2 teams that are showing interest in Vernon.
He could have left it as 2 teams are interested PERIOD.
Now potentially another team needs to do a bit of damage control that their team was kicking tires for QB depth.
I agree. And, Grover's post that Coach Jones says the deal is done and that it's up to Adams and his agent whether he goes to EDM or MTL tells me that the return, from either team, will be a 2019, same round, draft pick.
I see no damage control needed. Just maybe what is going down will involve all 3 teams? But the paper route to move Adams to his final destination is yet determined. The biggest question mark is what are the cats getting?
