I would like to remind those that panicked early on when we didn't over pay at FA for a receiver that good things come to those that wait.

Looking like a great Bomber club as long as the OL sorts itself out.
Man I wish we were all as smart as you are

Great signing !! Walters is looking real good right now.
For game one I'm projecting: Adams, Matthews, Demski, Bailey, and Wolitorsky.

After paying BLM $700K the Stamps probably couldn't match the Bombers offer.

Stamps don't need him.  They will find the next Chris Matthews, and the next one and the one after that- it's what they do very well

I'd take Tasker too. I just don't believe he is an elite receiver.


But he?s Steve Tasker?s kid, that alone according to Rod Back, makes him elite.

Does the Matthews signing signal the official end to Dressler in blue and gold?  Me thinks so.

Is there any evidence Matthews had interest from the NFL this past off-season or participated in any camps?  I thought it had been established earlier that he had exhausted his NFL opportunities by using all his P.R. eligibility up.

I think when he only signed with Calgary for the last 4 games of the season, it was to leave the door open in case he got any calls.  Couple that with the fact he signed now rather than early in free agency, and I think it?s clear he wanted to give it one last chance.

Which is only evidence of Matthews interest in the NFL, not vice versa.  It?s evident the NFL has concluded its interest, and the fact that he signed for 3 years suggests Matthew has as well.

He?s actually managed his career well.  Came here and established he was legit, and parlayed that into 4 years of decent income in the show.  Having played that out, he comes back here at age 29 and earns a healthy pay cheque for 3 years (and maybe a little longer if he stays healthy).

LOL. I have no idea which rookies are going to make the AR, DI or PR spots. I'm enthused about some of the rookies but will have to listen to TC reports. Adding Matthews is going to be another veteran presence that will help the young receivers.

 I don?t understand the slagging of Ellingson all the guy has done is make plays!!  And his quarterback will be the same guy was giving the ball to make those plays, he and Trevor harris will do just fine there.  Besides Edmonton probably got both of these guys for cheaper than BC paid for Reilly!!

 Matthews is a good signing by the bombers, much needed size and reliable hands

I was happy when I saw that the Bombers had signed him, then I saw that it was a 3 year deal and I was ecstatic. I think that the timing right now was perfect. When he became available last year the Bombers didn't have the money. This year they had every intention of signing a receiver and just had to wait until Matthews had finally given up the NFL dream.
