Well I guess that he's retiring because they're not even negotiating until March.

lol. Yeah I know which is why he's even more of a nut job. He's a potential free agent and his options were marginal anyway to retain any sort of big salary.

well there much not be much 'on the table' if both sides are willing to wait until March to even start talks... the disturbing part of this, they are withholding player contractually agreed upon bonus money until such time as an agreement is reached... how is that right?

So, lots of WR with no CFL experience signing lately, some with deep NFL time.

So, is it better to sign a guy with no NFL time, some NFL time or a lot of NFL time?  Is there a huge disparity in the cost of sighing them?   Is there a big disparity of talent / fit to the CFL?

The Montreal Alouettes have parted ways with former first overall draft pick Faith Ekakitie and veteran Joe Burnett, the team announced on Monday.

Ekakitie missed the entire 2018 season with a torn Achilles. The defensive tackle signed with the Alouettes after his release from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, who drafted him first overall in the 2017 CFL Draft.

The six-foot-one, 292-pounder played in 14 games in his rookie season with the Bombers and tallied five defensive tackles.

Burnett played just two games for the Alouettes in 2018. The defensive back tallied four defensive tackles and one interception.

Really too bad Ekakitie didn?t work out. He had a real good opportunity to work himself into a starter on the DL here.

2. SUKH CHUNGH

OL | WPG

With Matthias Goossen retired, Sukh Chungh becomes one of the top prizes in free agency. The former second overall pick turns just 27 in March and is in the prime of his career, helping anchor one of the CFL?s top O-lines in 2018. Chungh is regarded as one of the most aggressive and physical guards in the league.

3. TAYLOR LOFFLER

DB | WPG

With two of the top three nationals coming out of Winnipeg, Kyle Walters still has some work to do in the coming weeks. Almost all of the starting safeties in the CFL are pending free agency, but 26-year-old Taylor Loffler is at the top of his position. He has 185 tackles, eight interceptions and seven forced fumbles in three seasons.

Brandon Banks resigns with the Ticats. 2 yr extension.

Brandon Banks got a big deposit from the Ticats bank.

Banks signed a two-year extension worth $182,500 in year one and $195,000 for the second season – all hard money. For signing on the dotted line, Banks secures an $80,000 bonus along with $82,500 base salary and $20,000 housing.

But the key part of the deal: the Ticats can release Banks without paying him a dime anytime prior to training camp in 2020. He’s due $50,000 for reporting and passing his physical in May, but if Banks was cut he wouldn’'t see that money or any of the $125,000 base salary or $20,000 in housing.

Banks was a 2018 CFL all-star finishing second in receptions (94) and yards (1,423) among all receivers and tied for first with 11 receiving touchdowns, elite receiving numbers. The “hard money” Banks is due to make puts him among the highest paid receivers in the league prior to the 2019 free agent market opening. Toronto Argo S.J. Green, B.C. Lion Manny Arceneaux, Edmonton Eskimo Derel Walker and Ottawa Redblack Greg Ellingson were in the $200,000 range or higher.

June Jones deserves a cut of Banks’ pay raise for moving him to receiver full-time, but either way “Speedy B” has assumed a place among the upper echelon pass catchers in the CFL.

Yup...Boateng re-signed by the Esks just a couple of hrs ago and Lauzon-Seguin re-signs with the RB?s.

Kwaku Boateng signed a two-year extension through the 2020 season to remain with the Eskimos.

The 23-year-old went from making minimum salary on his first contract to national starter money on the new deal.

Boateng received a $50,000 signing bonus and $175,000 in ?hard money? for 2019 with $30,000 in 2020 for a $380,000 total plus incentives, per sources.

It?s potentially the largest jump in salary for a Canadian player who entered the league on an entry level deal.
