If cheap?  Sure, grab him.  Not hot for sacks anymore, but awesome at run-stop.  He'd be perfect for our woes.  He stays out of the tub, too.  If he sucks (due to age) or Fox is the next Nevis from week 1, then pull an A.Bowman and cut his butt by labor day.

BUT... every single step down that ladder was a slight drop off.  Nevis was really the best.  Stove was slightly different, but overall slightly worse.  Sayles was a big drop off.  Walker even more.  However, all were serviceable, and pretty darn good for 2nd/3rd year dev guys.

BUT... AND... the next-man-up was always the apprentice.  Never a raw rookie fresh up from the states.  So that would mean Fox or bust, eh?  We haven't seen squat from him yet, so we're flying blind.

It would be nice if we could go back to Nevis/Stove levels one year soon...

On the bright side, there's the DT-leaving-WPG curse thing.  Nevis and Stove really never played after leaving... they got their big signing $$ and promptly got injured and then retired.  Sayles did ok but they never played him as much as we did here, since they had so many options.

Sayles had an outstanding season in 2023 with 50 DTs and 7 sacks. That's 14 DTs more then 2022 with the Bombers.

Stove un-retired and re-signed with the Lions about a month ago, we'll see if he lives up to his legendary status.

This. He was phenomenal last season, hence the all-star nod.

We are seeing more and more teams move on from aged players , Since Toronto signed Orimolade, they are signing free agents for bigger dollars based on future potential versus historical data.
Thus far we've seen players such as Stanback, Baron, Moncrief, Ruby, Sewell. Gainey, let go by their respective teams. It will be interesting to see what happens with Jeffcoat, Larry Dean, J'Gared Davis. Micah Johnson, among others

2 whole seasons in the tub... Can you regain mojo after that long?  More importantly: can he stay out of the tub?

I'd love to see him do well, but clearly not when we're playing BC...

Ya, he's the only one so far not bitten by the ex-Bomber-DT tub-curse.  BUT... those stats need to account for the fact that '23 HAM's D was on the field probably 50% more than WPG's in '22.  HAM's O was baaaaaad in '23, and ToP was horrific.

I believe nose tackle Drake Nevis also washed out quickly after he left the Bombers (for Toronto if I recall correctly), not just Stove Richardson.
