Signing a player to contract in the CFL means nothing. You can sign him today and cut him on Saturday. Hurl can still play teams.

Solly took a shave to 200k last year with agreement with Wally to extend it to this year...but looks like Hervey just isn't honeying past agreements and putting his stamp on things...

I'm not sure what that word means.....at least not in this context.  Grin

Elimimian is one year contract is worth $160,000, which given the circumstances is still a very good deal. #Riders #BCLions @CFLonTSN @TSN_Sports

Yeah, if that number's correct, that seems like a really good deal.

I'd say it's fair market value. Solly has been one of the best in the league for many years but is coming off injury, hasn't played in almost a year, was playing average football in the few games prior to his injury last year, and is 33 years old and looks like he lost a fight with a donut store. It's a prove it year for him.

He won't be 33 until October but yea, I think it's fair market value for him.

We got Bighill, a better player with far fewer question marks, for 175k under similar circumstances last year.

A good deal for the Riders and for a starting MLB. Too much to pay if he was considered elsewhere as a WIL.

Good signing for the Riders, but they still need to shore up their OLine and WR depth

$160k is a steal for SSK.  And they needed MLB.  Desperately.

I would have bit at $160k for Solly for WPG though had we not found our star receiver.

Question is why Hufnagel did not push the price beyond $160,000, right now he's sitting with a broken down Cory Greenwood as his MLB with little indication Singleton will return this year.

Solly will be a very good addition to the middle of Sask?s D (with Micah & Evans), as long as he can manage to stay off the IR. He?s not a big man and he has dished out & taken a lot of punishment over the yrs. Gotta love the guy though, he?s fun to watch when he?s flying around the field.

Good question.  I can think of 2 answers:
1. Huff knows something we don't (i.e. Singleton will likely be back)
and/or
2. Huff never puts up big bucks for other-team, all-star "oldsters", he just goes out and finds the next Singleton and Rogers.
