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.

Well, that's conspiracy nonsense in my opinion.

Dunigan played for half the league. He was a hired mercenary who switched teams with every contract. And he, along with Flutie, played in the days of non-enforced salary caps and made more money than QBs are making now - 20 years later.

Toronto was the last of six different teams for Allen, twice with Edmonton. Why do you only see a trend only to Toronto ? Because that's all you want to see.

He will go to the place where he can enjoy success and get paid handsomely. Where he goes will depend on who the HC snd OC are, who his receiving corps is and will the team compete for the grey cup. If BLM doesn?t sign with Calgary , I wouldn?t be surprised to see MR go there. I can also see him Re-signing with Edmonton, and if B.C. hires a QB friendly HC or OC (trestman), I can see him going there as well.

I can?t see him going to Montreal or Toronto as they are too unstable and uncompetitive ?he wants to win and right now.

Assuming Calgary re signs BLM, I see him staying put (likely) or going to bc

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.


this I agree with

He will go to the highest bidder
Agreed. He's old. Mid 30's. He has a Grey Cup, could be his last contract. He'll go where he's most over paid, the rest is just noise.

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

While I don't disagree with your theory, I think it really hinges on how they do in the playoffs.  If the Bombers bounce them out in the WSF, I suspect Jones is going to have to go spend more money on QBs, as it will have shown out that you can only carry a team so far with a defense.  And it's not like Collaros is making under market.

Well said. I couldn't agree more.

I have no doubt that Edmonton will show him the money. If he goes anywhere it is to BC, for comparable dollars, to be close to home.

I know one thing, Hervey AND the dollars will come calling, so Edm. better be prepared to open up the vault... Don't know why, but I have a hunch we'll see him in orange and black next year....my guess

Dave Campbell on Twitter: "Jason Maas tonight on the #Eskimos Coaches Show on @630CHED says the decision has been made about his future. He will be back as the head coach for the 2019 season. Says he?s leaning towards not being the O.C. Likely will promote within the coaching staff. #CFL" / Twitter

If he stays in Edmonton it looks like Maas will be his coach.

strange occurance he is basically calling his own shots. Schmos have not announced nothing. It would be hilarious if they can him after this.
