The most important defensive player but not the most important overall because of ratio. Either we keep Loffler or add another National on defense. Lokombo might be a choice. Can you suggest another National possibility if we lose Loffler?

Are any of Jones, Conteh, or our other National DB's able to step in with little drop off? Not IMO.



First and best option is to re-sign Loffler. If he prices himself out of the market, then Lokombo would be a good choice, although Lokombo will have options.

If neither are available, then we likely seek to balance the ratio on the d-line.  Guys like Boateng, Mrabe, possibly Corney as a starter, or Junior Turner are all available on the free agent market.   I don't see many NTL options at safety or in the secondary that i like.

Boateng would be an excellent option on the DL. IIRC he's getting some NFL interest and he won't come cheap. I like Corney but he and the others mentioned aside from Boateng would be big drop offs IMO. Good depth but not full time starters.

Realistically I'm less concerned that Loffler pricing himself out of the market than the concern about going to the Lions.

If Loffler goes to BC, then we can pretty much be guaranteed to get Bighill... at the end of the day, we should have at least one of them...

Not quite following your logic.  There are eight other teams who may or may not be vying for either of their services, making decisions exclusive of all other teams, so if they both make it to FA (and to be honest, I don't see why they both wouldn't test the market), it's completely plausible that the Bombers could be outbid in parallel and lose both.

Both have family ties to BC, and playing ties to us.  All things being equal, I think it would be down to us and BC. 

Now, Kavis in MTL might Westerman one of them but other than him, I think we can match any offer...

Wow. Great guy, great career. Bighill signing looking even more important. Edmonton could have been another suitor

Injuries catching up with him?  Wear and tear pretty high with his style of play.  Great player, great to watch though
