I wonder what the numbers look like for bowman with all the interest he had. I hope we didn't pay too much and make it difficult to get a top level MLB to help our backfield.

Great addition to our receiving corps. Hope we didn't break the bank for him though.

My prediction is it's in the $180-200k range.

I would be happy with a corp of Adams/Dressler/Bowman/Demski and White with LDW as the extra import rotating in and as import back-up and having Coates and Drew W as national depth and still be able roster Flanders to throw into the mix.

Bowman is a type of receiver and has the skill set where even if and when he loses a step will still be very effective...a nice 1-2 year stop gap if you ask me while we develop and or uncover another stud.

Love this signing. Never should have let him go to begin with.

I'm sure he wasn't cheap if that's what you mean.

Agreed.  This makes our offense elite now, and I'd say we have to be Grey Cup favourites now.  This is the exact type of receiver we needed.  Bowman, Adams and Dressler looks pretty sick right now for our receivers.  I'm curious what type of money Walters gave him. 

Let's just hope the D can tighten up a bit.

I wouldn't say we are cup favorites, our D which was our issue last year has not improved yet in the off season thus far and it looks more and more likely that we will lose Heath to free agency making it worse.

The D is definitely still a question mark, but I am optimistic.

Either or....but now I think of it Givens does returns too...so thats a plus and allows us to let Lankford go. I do like LDW skillset tho and what he could/can bring if used properly and gives us more diversity in body types.

I would love for LDW to pack on 10 or so pounds..wouldn't affect his speed at all and would make him a much bigger threat

I realize that. There are varying levels of expensive though. If we got him in the 180-190k range, I'd be very happy about that. 200k+....not so much.

Anyone recall what Bowman's injury was last year?  Was it a concussion?

Lankford is terrible. I don't think he's making it out of camp.

Depends on whether we can find an alternate KR or not.
