Nichols selling potential free agents on Winnipeg - Ed Tait

Canadian Football League free agency begins in just over a month and the annual talent grab is tracking to be an unprecedented arms race as teams stare at a l-o-o-o-ng list of stars and future stars.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have taken a few names off that list over the last few weeks, locking up key pieces like Adam Bighill, Justin Medlock and Stanley Bryant, and with their quarterback crew - Matt Nichols, Chris Streveler and Bryan Bennett - and the two-time rushing champ, Andrew Harris, already on board.

Still, there's work to be done and Nichols - who is in town for a couple of speaking engagements and heading out to Brandon Friday for the Wheat Kings' Blue Bombers Night - is more than willing to roll up his sleeves to help deliver the club's sales pitch.

"There's guys that will come to me without me having to seek them out that want to know about Winnipeg and want to know about the coaching and the staff here and the locker room dynamics," said Nichols in a long session with the media. "I already get guys that are reaching out to me on their own that want to be a part of what we've got going on here.

"As (free agency) gets closer and we?ve got more targeted guys... if I have any knowledge of anyone we're interested in I'll definitely go out of my way to let those guys know what we've got going on here and definitely give my pitches as to why they should come here and help us win a championship."

That list of prospective Bombers free agents includes current teammates like Sukh Chungh and Matthias Goossen, Jackson Jeffcoat, Jovan Santos-Knox, Weston Dressler, Brandon Alexander, and Taylor Loffler, among others. But in his media conference on Thursday, Nichols again echoed a sentiment heard since the Bombers fell short to the eventual-Grey Cup champion Calgary Stampeders in the West Final: This team is closer to the winner?s circle than ever before. And when players like Bighill are recommitting before the free agent market even opens, it speaks volumes of where the franchise is, especially after stepping out from the wreckage that was 2012-15.....

Maybe we should sign Matt as recruitment specialist instead of QB? lol
