This is interesting: According to one source, Kavis Reed was tied up this afternoon for hours because he was on a flight -- on Day 1 of Free Agency with a team that desperately needs new talent  -- and another source said it was likely a visit to see Jamaal Westerman in NJ.

The WEST is going to be another tough year I think.  Riders added some good talent on the defensive side of the ball.  Calgary/Edmonton always seem to do well.  BC is my only question mark.

Messam is long done.  Doesn't scare me...he will have a couple of great games and that will be it, otherwise he will be injured or ineffective

 Huh

He cracked 1,000 yards last season. He's an instant upgrade to the Riders on offense. What I wonder is what he signed for in Jonestown.

I agree with the Zipp he really faded badly back half of last year.

I seem to recall the last third of the season he didn't do much...big body gets beat down and that won't be getting any different as he gets older.  You are right though he improves the riders but they were starting pretty low bar.

Losing vet DB's and not signing replacements is not a good strategy, I guess they can still hold onto Ronnie Yell.

Weird, do they have any semblance of a strategy they're pursuing?  They already have 3 good Import RB's in Marshal, Richardson and Thigpen that they probably won't be able to keep, now they add a Natl. starter to the mix?  Too much money and not enough brains.

According to Justin Dunk on Twitter, The Riders are signing Travis Bond to a 1yr deal.

Yep...and plan on playing him LT. I love the big man at OG but he will likely be a pylon at LT.

Whatever team signs Messam, their fans will have to pray that the weather never turns cold and snows.

Yea he was on a tear through the first half of the season and looked noticeably run down after Labor Day. He is not an every down player anymore.

Funny how on the Riders message board they are comparing Walters to Taman, in that he builds his team through free agency.  Yet the Riders have signed just as many free agents as we have this offseason  Cheesy

...And have likely spent more doing it. Messam is over 100k for sure, Evans at 170k, and Bond I am hearing was around 150k. But we're the ones throwing around cash acting like Taman. Roll Eyes
