Have we heard how much Purifoy got in Ottawa?  Would be an interesting comparison ...

Guessing Fenner is a better fit with our team than Purifoy...  Purifoy hits a ton, but seems to me like he is a dirty player.  Fenner seems to be a hard working guy who loves his ST time...

More curious on the price tag than the talent or style

Another great signing. The fact that he can also play SAM is a bonus in that he can fill in for Leggett if need be.

From Naylor: A couple of interesting salary tidbits: one team claims it offered $30k more than Wpg for DB Chandler Fenner but lost out. Tommie Campbell was apparently close to re-signing in Calgary last week for 150k. Must have got a lot more to go to Mtl. #CFL

^^ THIS.  Notice how every signing is a player we can all like.  WBB never signs the a-holes or dirty hitters, or drug-addled airport loiterers.  Locker room attitude and fitting in with the MOS culture as important as talent.

That's why I say, and am sure I'll get, no Steele, no Mrubare, no Messam, no Carter... Steele/Mrubare both were part of injury-gate.  Messam is vulgar.  Carter is... well...

Fenner/Demski/LaFrance are all class acts; and big potential.  That said, Fenner $130+?  That's crazy.  Where are we getting all this money?  Still need some LBs!!

That's not huge money for an all star calibre player. In fact it wasn't even the highest offer. Fenner is likely the 3rd highest paid guy in our secondary right now.

So which side is Fenner going to play HB on?  I'm sure he would sparkle beside Randle but I really hope to see him on the other-side beside Huh.

I expect him on the same side as Heath was, with Randle.

Yeah...you put your strongest guy on the boundary side because it's where other teams best receivers line up. Putting Fenner on the field side would be a waste.

Could be but if he has good chemistry with Gaitor on corner it might be the solution to a huge problem area on the far side.  If not we could be in for another **** show.
