If Durant agrees to a Number 2 role and salary, then he would be good here

For the right price, I've got no issue with Durant being #2 here.  I thought what the Bombers were doing platooning Lefevour in for short yardage and then having him play the next down in hurry up was actually something I'd like to see on the regular.  Now imagine that scenario with Durant's arm.  QB sneak against the big boys for the first down, don't let the short yardage team off the field, and run a 30 yard passing play (provided we have the receivers to run those routes).

If Durant were to start completeting 30 yard passss people would be calling for him to start.

He's had his day. He looked terrible most of this year. Keep spinning the carousel.

As a backup QB with experienced backup QB money, he makes sense. There should be no delusions that he'd be coming to even compete to start.

If he wants that, then he should sign elsewhere, but where would that be? There's no West team where that would be happening. Montreal is moving on. Toronto? Not if RR is back. Ottawa? Hamilton?

I just don't see a landing spot for him in a starter's role. If he wants to play, it will be in a backup role.

Durant seems like he'd be a problem in the locker room.  Doesn't come across as a team player.

Must be a good problem since he has a ring.

Uh, no. Just you. Same as always with your "Nichols is mediocre" narrative.

Durant's best days are behind him. He can't stay healthy, either.

I don't agree, I think Durant still thinks of himself as a starter who just had a bad year.  If the Als release him, I think he is at a minimum going to want to go to a situation where he can compete to start.  I don't he settles for straight back-up money, I think his ego is still substantial.  

I think the odds are that the Als bring him back, but also sign another potential starter and let them duke it out.  The only other two options I see for him is (a) Hamilton if they fail to sign Masoli or Manziel, or (b) BC, where he could fill in for Lulay while he heals and be insurance in case Jennings makes an NFL run.  (I thought I read that Jennings was interested in working out for the NFL this off season, but this article doesn't seem to reflect that).

Durant will have to take a lower base salary next year.  There is no doubt about that.  i woudn't be surprised if it is 200 - 250,000.  He will make extra for games played.

I would agree about Durant.....but ya never know eh....jus pretend he is the back up next year....Matts leg gives out a bit early in the season.....Durant comes in and gets a couple starts and lights it up with some long TD passes to several different receivers.....in the red zone even......ya never know .....it might make an interesting season for us

It's been over 4 years since that happened. I wouldn't hold my breath on that happening, much less except the team to gamble on such a risky move.

Cut Matt Nichols. It?s clear that Dominique Davis or anyone else is the answer.

I wouldn't sign Durant. Who ever signs him will pay starters pay for a backup . And he wont except backup roll , . . Another one is Glenn. Kind of similar in ways. But they should sign someone who has got experience .  I thought the last few quarterbacks they cut were pretty good in pre season. After Franklin and Collaros, the selection isn't that great.

I expect Durant is going to want to start, or atleast see significant playing time.  He is not going to get that in Winnipeg.  I see they have us keeping Davis over Lefevour?  No way....  I would keep Lefevour simply for his short yardage play. 
I expect that Durante will realize that when the gong show in Montreal doesn't want to go with him as their starter, this will be his wake up call that the only way he continues his career is as a backup , and he'd be a very good one at that. Right now, I see us or Ottawa as his only option, so I m thinking him coming here may actually play out
