It looks like we are signing the bottom end of our FA's now while the top end guys wait for the new CBA to see how much more money and signing bonuses are available.

I am sure the team wants to know the salary cap as well.

Never a bad thing to be clear about whether you are stating an opinion or a fact.

lol. Just to recap, I made an innocent comment that I was pleasantly surprised by the signing, on a fan discussion forum no less, and the fact that I was a bit surprised has lead you to conclude that I should become more knowledgeable about a special teams player on a CFL team.

lol, take a hike.

I wouldn't say Miller is a bottom end player for the bombers. Canadian, top ST's player, and comes in to block on some O plays.

TORONTO - The Canadian Football League (CFL) and the nine clubs have unveiled ten players from each team's negotiation list on Wednesday.

Below are the lists of 10 players from each CFL team:

A correction on here - they have Mekale McKay (Cincinnati) listed as quarterback, however he is a wide receiver.

Just confirming, when we sign players right now that will be earning league minimum, we can sign them the current minimum, and they will get a bump if that goes up.  But if we have current SMS$ available, we can give some of that league min salary up front, right?  So we can safely sign players now that are guys guaranteed to make the team, and have a low likelihood of ending up on the 6 game (where we will not gain relief from upfront payments).

I know he league has asked teams not to give out bonuses until the CBA is signed to exert pressure on the CFLPA to get a deal done quick, but that was just a request, right?  Teams can make 2018 SMS$ payouts for 2019 and beyond deals if they wish, right?

You can sign a few players right now. It's pretty safe to assume the SMS won't go down, so if they are willing to play for the same money or just a small increase the Bombers can make it happen. However guys like Biggie will have to wait until there is some clarity on the SMS for this year.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers agree to terms with Canadian linebacker Jesse Briggs

WINNIPEG, MB., December 17, 2018 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has agreed to terms with pending free agent Canadian linebacker Jesse Briggs on a two-year deal.

Briggs was originally selected 17th overall by Winnipeg in the 2014 CFL Draft and has spent the past five seasons in Blue and Gold. Over that span, Briggs has played in all but three games, tallying 87 career games played, 56 special teams tackles and 18 defensive tackles. Briggs has recorded double digit special teams tackles in four of his five CFL seasons.

"Last week we were able to agree with Mike Miller, which was big for our special teams in the next two seasons," said General Manager, Kyle Walters. "Similarly, Jesse also brings many great attributes on special teams and has continued to develop in that role for us. He works extremely hard, is a quiet player who goes about his business and does so at a very high level."

It's great to know we are signing our special teams aces.....however, it doesn't motivate me to think management has faith in maintaining possession in offence, when we prioritize signing. Kick cover guys.......lol!

On another note....do we actually sign any former Div 1 NCAA guys?

This latest signing of a defensive tackle from some obscure Div III community college in Minnesota, is like signing a guy from the Red River community College inter- mural program. Lol!

Come on man!

Not really...I've seen many a JUCO team in the U.S who would hand the ***** to any CIS program...and "technically" they are below Div III

Yeah, not likely, you under estimate the talent in the CIS.

If the talent in the CIS was so good, Cauchy Muamba wouldn't have had an 8-year career in the CFL (and counting). There are some gems that come out of the CIS for sure, but those are the needles in the haystack. And I mean no disrepect to CIS, and those that like it, they are fantastic CIS-level athletes but very few are capable of being impact players at the next level.
