From Herb: Redblacks have released QB Drew Tate. Wonder if #Als might have an interest?

This will free up some money for Ottawa in free agency. Might be time for Tate to call it a career.

Nah, he's gotten used to getting paid for never having to do anything.  He'll resurface, either with Montreal immediately, or BC if they don't get Lulay signed up (or his rehab takes longer than expected).

Tate was commanding 200k+ for his services, so it's no big shocker to see him released.

lol yea but whenever he is called upon to play, he gets injured within a few minutes of being in the game.  Might be time for him to take a hint and realize his body wasn't made for playing football  Cheesy

Didn't think he was making that much. I'm sure he'll resurface somewhere shortly. The Als or Lions could use him, IMO.

Davis gets another look. Not a bad move by Ottawa.

Tate could have been a good QB if he wasn't so deathly afraid of playing. The guy cringes when he's called upon and gets a mystery injury whenever he's touched.

You know what this suggest to me?  (at the risk of reading too much into it).

It suggests that the Bombers didn't so much give up on Davis, as they saw a one year window to pick up an experienced former starter, and take a run at a Grey Cup.  Along with the Bowman move, I think maybe Walters is going to go balls out in free agency to try and get it this year, and deal with the fiscal consequence and roster turnover next year.

Smells like a salary dump to me.

He'd fit in well on the Riders.

I hope you're right. It's time.

I don't know about that, I think you're reading into it further that you need to. I think they gave up on Davis midway through the year and found out Lefeavour wasn't any better. Other than Nichols, it's a reload at the QB spot under those circumstances so a veteran guy with a cheaper 3rd string seemed like the logical choice. I think the reason negotiations have been so tough with a number of our FAs is that we are redistributing some of the SMS so that we can go after guys.
