I believe what Harris is saying--he's my man.

He also said he had a couple of announcements yet to be made. Those could be high value / high signing bonus players or players that wouldn't necessarily get big up front money paid out of 2019 SMS.

Walters could still be re-signing other players with bonus money to be paid in 2020. Higher contract costs are part of the 2020 SMS so no problem there.

The fly in the ointment ( for us posters at least ) is what will it cost to sign 2 QB's compared to last year. The who is a question but so is the SMS question and what impact it has on the rest of the roster.

I'm guessing Bryant is the other signing and that will be it for 2019 money.

Which 7 Bombers? I've only heard about Streveler, Rose and Jefferson so far?

Sayles and Kongbo too.

I've always liked Milanovich, and thought that he was a good HC--respectable, and firm but fair. Edmonton aren't terrible or anything, they're just in need of better direction. Of all the offseason firings and hirings/ upgrades, Edmonton are definitely the most worrisome to me in terms of how much better they can potentially be next year. We'll see if they live up to that.

I'm not sure if giving up a 1st round pick is in the cards. It might be if there was less concern about Collaros and his concussion injury history. Other injuries would be easier to deal with in theory.

We only have one 1st round pick this year compared to 2 last year. Kongbo was released to try and get an NFL deal and he was our extra 1st round pick last year. We may get him back but when and if are TBD at this point.

If we end up losing Wolitarsky as well that's 2 starting Canadians lost. That would be at least a short term concern which could be resolved in free agency. To that end giving up the 1st round pick might be alright.

I don't think anyone questions that Collaros can be a good QB. It's just the question about the risk of further concussions to his long term health. That's something the doctors need to decide ( not Collaros himself per se ).

Nichols has different injury history issues as well. We've heard that he might not be ready for TC but we've also heard the injury will not be limiting .

Hopefully this is all decided before free agency. Wouldn't like to get into a bidding war or find ourselves left out in the cold as QB's sign elsewhere potentially.

Woli rarely has stated he's already working towards a new deal. Nothing is for sure until the contract is signed but he's not someone I anticipate losing.

Dinwiddie is an odd choice. I remember when he was prominent in the Als' organization and they had nothing but problems. It's also interesting to consider that they'd poach a guy from Calgary, when Calgary's usually airtight success was perhaps the weakest that it's been in a while. Claybrooks proved that you can't just take someone from their staff and expect results.

YES! Incredible news. I've been on pins and needles this whole time. The logic seemed to point to that it would be foolish for O'Shea and Walters to walk away from the success that they've been cultivating all of these years, only to leave when it finally materialized. Glad to see that they want to be here.

Again, thank you Wade Miller. Everything has started with him and he's surrounded himself with staff that he trusts and it's been nothing but a constant slow build up to being the best team in the league.

Here's my take on it: now that LaPolice has gone to Ottawa, he's obviously going to want to work with players that he has a good rapport with. If I were LaPolice, I'd want Collaros, because Nichols and Collaros have similar styles and both had hovered around the 200 yards per game mark or so with the Bombers, but Collaros took us to a championship and obviously has the proven goods to be able to win when it matters. And he can complete the deep ball as needed to move the game along at crucial times, whereas Nichols hasn't really ever solidified the confidence in the deep threat that I've needed to have in the past.

The last thing that I'd want is to give any competing team an edge, and if Ottawa are in the gutter right now, I wouldn't want to give them a hand up by giving them Collaros.....I'd rather that they have Nichols. With Nichols, they could be an alright team, but with Collaros, I feel that they'd be nearing the quarterbacking of Harris once again.

O'Shea re-signing with the team would obviously point to what one would assume that he'd have a loyalty to Nichols, going back several seasons to when Willy wasn't getting the job done, Nichols' success may very well have saved O'Shea's job at that point. The question is how much loyalty O'Shea would have to that versus how concerned he would be about fielding the best possible team and keeping the players that put him in the best position to continue on to what could potentially be a dynasty era.

The loyal man would go with Nichols, however, the wise man would go with Collaros.

Blame it on my typing skills (or lack thereof).  The "7" should have been "&".  Now corrected.

Blue Bombers sign offensive lineman Jermarcus Hardrick to one-year extension

WINNIPEG, MB., December 14, 2019 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has signed American offensive lineman Jermarcus Hardrick on a one-year extension. Hardrick was scheduled to be a free agent in February.

Hardrick (6-5, 320, Nebraska, May 30, 1990 in Batesville, MS) will be entering his seventh CFL season in 2020, and fifth with Winnipeg. Hardrick has played in 67 games since joining the team prior to the 2016 season, including starting all 18 games and three playoff games at right tackle.

Hardrick is a mainstay on an offensive lineman that once again blocked for the league's leading rusher, and all of his games dressed (67) with Winnipeg since signing with the club have been starts.
