That could mean anything, and if it is contract related, it's probably just part of the negotiations. 

Remember Lamar Durant's recent tweet, where he tweeted "Free Agency".  Then a couple days later he re-signed with Calgary.

Nothing about our secondary was consistently good last year.

He was an all star and his stock would go up because of it.....we had 3 all stars in the secondary and our stats were horrific aside from our takeaways and interceptions.  Our coaching might be suspect however it looks,like the Bombers are standing pat...once again.   Fatal flaw imho!

Heath was a do or die type player. If he was not intercepting balls he for the most part was pretty invisible. He did get beat for some big plays and whiffed tackles. He is a veteran which is hard to replace when you have rookies starting. But if there is a better player in free agency, Im ok with not re signing him. Will not be the end of the world. Im sure with Hall still around it wont matter who is back there giving up 400 yards per game in the air anyway.

I'm sure Walters has a number in mind, and that number might not be as high as another GM trying to win this year. 

Can't fault a guy for wanting to get paid, TJ certainly has earned that right.  But its a business.  We can't give everyone what they want, unless what they want is a reasonable salary paid to play on a great team. Wink

Invisible you say? He was tied with Randle for 4th in DT's with 64. If he had 3 more tackles he would have been 2nd.

I think you underestimate his value in 2017. However, I have no idea what his financial expectations are or how realistic he sets his market value. Extremely likely he plays in the CFL for someone in 2018.

Whether it's the Bombers or not I don't know. IMO we can't afford to lose him and we've had difficulty actually finding rookie import talent at DB.

I foresee us starting Alexander, Walker and Parker ( 2017 PR ) if we lose Heath and / or Randle.

I cringe at the thought of loosing Randal or Heath and then convulse when I think if this happens, we'll start Alexander and Walker.....we'll get severely torched in 2018!!! It will be disasterous!!!

Hey Mr. New Scout....can you find us some quality DB's???!!!

Does this imply a tweet wasn't a complete and factual statement?

Could be about his significant other for all we know. You all read way too much into social media.

TJ, Get your *** back to Winnipeg.  We are trending upward, everyone else is going  the otherway.  Sign a one year deal, win the Grey Cup,and then ask for the moon!
You are our best DB, and should be paid like it, and you will.
