Ellingson..(don't think the refusal to blow will resonate with Mike O) Walker...definitely Mathews...All solid go to guys that would delight Nichols and Sreve

I think we will need to spend a lot of our SMS money on nationals to replace the all stars we are losing. Fixing the receiver problem will have to wait until we fix the NI starter problem.

We should have enough to do both what with a few players that have moved on and some to be axed

I would be happy with a Adams/Woli/Thompkins/Simonese and one of Walker or Mathews....or a 3rd option Posey to go with Harris, and if ratio allowed it with not having to start 2 national receivers a guy like Nelson or a receiver of similar ilk to play the Demski role...I don't see Demski and his 160k ask as necessary..

Agree, instead of chasing after established receivers that are already earning max. dollars at their position, sign upcoming receivers with drive and size who will become elite receivers within the next few years, much like they did with Adams.  Dominique Rhymes, Juron Criner, heck I'd even give Ricky Collins another shot.

Agreed.

And anyway, it?s about time LaPo (& Nichols) find a way to turn a few of the receivers the scouts bring in into CFL receivers.

It?s like Winnipeg has turned into a black hole for receivers. They come and go with very little opportunity to showcase any of the skills they showed in college. Instead we bring in guys like Romby Bryant & Adarius Bowman at the tail end of their careers to run decoy routes.

*edit - add Kenny Stanford to that vet decoy receiver list.

Likely BC bound. The Claybrooks factor will definitely come into play during FA.
