Kyle Walters Checks In From GM Meetings - Ed Tait

He's been through the demolition and the rebuilding. And now Kyle Walters' biggest challenge as GM of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers is to tinker with the blueprint to turn a contender into a champion.

Walters is in Banff this week, along with Bombers boss Wade Miller, at the Canadian Football League's annual GM and presidents meetings. CFL GMs met with commissioner Randy Ambrosie Tuesday night to discuss items like moving the season up and player safety, but with just over a month before the free agent market opens and with the annual combines and draft fast approaching, Walters & Co. are spending most of their waking hours on filling in the blank spaces on their depth charts.

Walters has knocked off 10 names from the Bombers' prospective free agent list by re-signing offensive linemen Stanley Bryant, Jermarcus Hardrick, Pat Neufeld and Manase Foketi, kicker Justin Medlock, running back/receiver Timothy Flanders, receiver Weston Dressler, defensive tackle Drake Nevis, linebacker Ian Wild and defensive back Derek Jones. But some juicy names remain unsigned, including CFL all-star defensive backs Chris Randle and T.J. Heath, playmaking linebacker Maurice Leggett, guard Travis Bond, receiver Clarence Denmark, defensive end Jamaal Westerman, defensive tackle Jake Thomas as well as linebackers Sam Hurl and Kyle Knox, fullback Christophe Normand, receiver Julian Feoli-Gudino, defensive back/punt returner Kevin Fogg and quarterback Dan LeFevour......

Solid list so far of re-signings.  Good to see 4 OLs listed on there, as well as Flanders and Wild.  Still a little skeptical about the Nevis re-signing.

I didn't think you were considered a "contender" until you make the final game ?
