I wonder if Westerman realizes that he just jumped onto the sinking ship everyone else is jumping off of, and Kavis Reed is driving that ship!!. Hebert, Harty, etc are running out of town, and Westerman is strolling in.....bon chance mon amis!!

I'm sure he'll be crying all the way to the bank.

One year is all he'll get in Mtl., after that if he wants to continue his football career he'll have to play for substantially less.

One year contracts is a way of life in the current CFL. If he got the reportedly extra $50K for this season that's a pretty good deal. 2019 will see a new CBA and who knows what that will bring.

So far 43 players have changed teams. This doesn't include those that weren't on the free agent list and released at the end of the season etc. etc.

So, even with offering Jake Harty a considerable contract, and it leaking that he was going to MTL, Reed lets him slip through his fingers to Jones.  Frying pan, meet fire...  well, at least in SSK he has a guy that used to be a QB tossing him the ball...

Herb: #AlsMTL finally sign some Canadian free agents - RB Shaquille Murray-Lawrence and K Quinn van Gylswyk ... not to mention import LB Kyle Knox from Winnipeg

Of all the signings, Van G is probably the only guy who feels safe in his decision.  He's played 2 yeas under Jones, so he knows dumpster fires, and he's not in a spot where he's asked to do anything other than kick de ball. So, as long as he can put it through the uprights...

Kyle Knox was a good player but he got beat out by other rookies we had on our team, I don't think it is an overly big deal that we are losing Knox.  Although he will help  Montreal improve, and I think that is also a good thing.

No.  He was a MLB recruit, but Hurl started ahead of him due to ratio.  He played as a DI lineback, but as the year went on he lost playing time to Santos-Knox.

John Hodge calls him very athletic, but not a great football IQ.  He didn't stand out, but he was serviceable.  He might find a role with the Als, but the Bombers won't miss him.

A soon-to-be 29-year old INT LB with all off 28 games played in the CFL...? Nah.

Pretty thin at the linebacker position now. Oshea isn't worried or Walters. Maybe theyre going with the same defensive plan as last year. Bend no break defense .I think they lost a good player .

Knox was coming off his first contract so he would have been looking for a bit of a raise. I'm sure Walters feels that money should be spent elsewhere and that rookie linebacker can replace him in the line-up.
