IMO he goes to Vancouver. Playing indoors is not a bad idea for a passing QB's that throws a lot of 50/50 balls to his receivers.

Edmonton is going to be a mess this off season. BC seems to be in better shape but coaching changes may change that quickly.

Probably BC but I think Edmonton could still retain him. Healthy Walker along with Hazelton, Mitchell and Stafford pretty tempting. Probably losing Williams though. Another dark horse candidate: Toronto

I guess the question is which team(s) don't need to bid on Mike Reilly, ignoring for the time being other QBs free agency.  Calgary, Winnipeg, Hamilton, Ottawa are most "set" at QB, provided they re-sign their existing pivots.

BC is somewhat in the ether.  Jennings appears to be a bit of a bust.  Lulay simply is not a full season QB; best bet is he's healthy for 2/3 of the season at best.  So if Lulay transitions to coaching in the off season, BC is a definite possibility.

Saskatchewan - they'd be stupid not to.  Collaros isn't a full season QB, Bridge isn't the heir apparent, and Tate's insurance.

Toronto - Franklin hasn't shown he can live up to the hype, at least yet.

Montreal - 6 backups, no starters

Edmonton - without Reilly, they are dead in the water

My instinct says Edmonton or BC, Sask being the outlier.  I can see both Montreal and Toronto offering more, depends on whether or not Reilly wants to win.

BC has the combination of being reuinted with Lulay and Hervey, and being closer to home.  IF he leaves Edm, and depending on what Edmonton does to the front office, which I can't see them doing anything, he should end up in BC, as they will pay him whatever he wants, as much as anyone else.  They might even use the "go see what you can sign for and we'll match it..."

There is going to be a lot of panic in the QB market come Feb.  There are only a handful of quality proven starters, adnd an even smaller group of future starters, and the AAFLFL eating up 24 prospects.  So finding the next one is going to be tough.  Walters is so lucky not to have that worry right now, not sure Bennett's contract status, if he is signed for next year, we have an awesome QB battery and Walters will be able to focus elsewhere on his personnel.  Something no other GM will have the luxury of, except maybe Hamilton.

Somebody is going to offer him a pile of money. Toronto is very probable as they desperately need a starting QB and need to put rear ends in seats. He's won a Grey Cup in Edmonton so another challenge. BC is also possible. With him as starter and Lulay backup you may have one of the strongest 1-2 combinations in football and it's unfinished business for Reilly there. This is not to rule out Edmonton because they also are prepared to open the bank on this one.

Time to institute an individual salary cap before the bidding gets under way which will make Reilly the highest paid player in the league and stretch the allocation of SMS dollars in the wrong direction.  Reilly's new contract will have a residual effect on all upcoming QB contracts and will only increase the divide between the rich at the top and the poor at the bottom of the salary ladder, which should not be in line with either the CFL or CFPA salary management goals.

Sask didn't want to pay Durant what market value would have got him..and made Zack restructure cause he was too costly...I doubt that they will pay what Reilly will command....but hope they do...because that is about 200k in salary they will have to trim elsewhere...and all their money is tied up on there defense...so kiss that top 2 or 3 defense goodbye

He shouldn't be the highest paid player. Didn't make the playoffs. Someone wants to pay him like Toronto. I would not be surprised. Any quarterbacks who didn't make the playoffs probably shouldn't get a raise. Hes making more than anyone now, but paying him more will make him play better . I doubt it. Happy with the quarterbacks we have so, we can stay at a decent pay for a quarterback.

That's weird logic. Sure he didn't make the playoffs but you gotta look at performance too. QB is an important position but it's not the only position

Bo and MR will probably go where the money is. With that said RM in BC, Bo will probably stay in Calgary. Collaris should retire.

He will most likely go to Toronto.

Why?

Like it or not, Toronto is Canada's most important market. It has the highest population and the most corporate sponsorship. The league has a vested interest in ensuring that Toronto has a decent team, and right now without a good QB, Toronto is terrible.

Remember that there are multiple instances where elite QB's have gone to the Argonauts - all from a western team:

1. 1990 - Matt Dunigan (from BC)
2. 1996 - Doug Flutie (from Calgary)
3. 2003 - Damon Allen (from BC)
4. 2012 - Ricky Ray (from Edmonton)

Don't know about the rest of you, but I see a pattern here. And, lo-and-behold, either the same year or the year after the elite QB moves to Toronto, the Argos have a turnaround year and win the Grey Cup. So, I'm betting on Toronto.

If he went to BC, he?d be taking his buddy Lulay?s job away, can?t see him wanting to do that unless Lulay wants to becomes a backup now
