Hope they start him and dump Henoc...that would be poetic justice. He's a 100k a year ST player for them otherwise.

OMG...im the amazing Kreskin.

Solid replacement for Watson.

Hardly. Watson had 350 yards of which 250 yards more or less in YAC. Kohlert had 77 yards in receptions with 9 yards YAC.

Watson is leaps and bounds better than Kohlert.

What's the snap and target comparison between the two?  That might explain the statistical difference, since opportunity typically = stats.

Well that's the point. Watson will get more targets because he's proven to be a more productive receiver. That's what defines " better ". He's probably faster, tougher and more likely to break tackles than Kohlert.

Watson: 115 games 290 receptions 3331 yards
Kohlert: 100 games 167 receptions 1990 yards. Only 7 receptions in 2017.

That's a bit of a simplified way of looking at things. Maybe Kohlert had a better receiver in front of him on the depth chart in Calgary, where Watson has less competition for targets in front of him on the depth chart.  Put Watson on Calgary and maybe he doesn't get as many targets as he got in Edmonton.  Stats don't always tell the whole story. 

I do agree that Watson is probably the better receiver, but your argument of showing both of their stats from last season doesn't tell the whole story.

I gave the career stats. Watson was always a more productive receiver during his career where ever he played. Obviously Kohlert was way down the depth chart in Calgary with the talent they had with import receivers.

Even when Kohert was with the Bombers he got pushed by JFG who then got pushed by Coates.

If Rory has returned to form he has better hands than Watson and is a great possession receiver but other than that Watson is superior.

Kohlert: 100 games 167 receptions 1990 yards. Only 7 receptions in 2017.

Historically, there is no doubt Watson has been a more productive receiver.  However, both of them are in the twilight of their career, and past productivity isn't always the final proof.

When I look at the Lions roster, it seems to me that they are looking to go with 2 NI receivers.  And I think Hervey will want his coach to use Watson like they did in Edmonton, coming in to help with pass protection as a TE, as much as anything else.  I think that will get him on the field more than Rory, who is probably isn't seen as much more than injury insurance at this point. So, I think Watson is going to get more snaps, and will play a larger role.

I think it is safe to say that the Riders effectively swapped NAT defenders HM for ZE. However, since 35k of HMs salary was paid ZE effectively costs them 35k more. That means the cost of rostering ZE pushes up to 205000. That means they have 3 DL constituting 555k of cap hit.

I am waiting for a Chris Jones presser in the next couple days where he rips off a rubber mask revealing Brendan Taman while exclaiming..." Im baaack!"

Read what I actually posted instead of arguing pointlessly. Kohlert can be a dependable/reliable NAT receiver when used effectively. Hence my saying "solid replacement."

It isn't like the Eskimos' offense relies heavily on NAT receivers, anyway.
