The only way Nevis gets cut is if Richardson out right takes his job, or we are up against the cap.

Keep in mind Nevis was signed later in FA. He isn't a guarantee

Being signed late doesn't mean much. That may have been the choice of the player or a multitude of reasons in the negotiations. There have been many players signed very early or even before free agency that were released before TC around the league.

Obviously Nevis has no guarantee and SMS might come into play. We'll see how Richardson continues to make progress. He might more likely replace B. Bryant at DT and he's a pretty good player as well.

All that said, Nevis is a very good player. SMS is a CFL reality though.

I expect we'll have a Canadian DT on the roster, possibly even 2. That's more to do with young talent found in the draft. Whether that means Thomas is released is not certain but it's within the realm of possibilities.

I think Nevis had a very good year last. I think $$$ mite be why it could a while to re-sign him. Walters is very good with our money.

I really don't think Richardson is competing against Nevis. I think he is competing against Bryant based on what all three bring to the table.

DL - Start of the season:
Jeff-Bryant-Nevis-Jeff
Roh - Forde
*Griffiths on the 2man
*Richardson IR (or full salary PR)
*Thomas gets cut

DL - when Kongbo is ready
Jeff-Bryant-Nevis-Jeff
Kongbo-Richardson
*Griffiths on the 2man
*Forde is released

Hopefully Richardson is willing and eager enough to accept a P.R. position if offered, but you never know, he could end up being one of these "surprise cuts" they spring on us every single year.

Where's Roh in your Kongbo scenario? Cut?

Apparently you don't even know Oka was not re-signed in free agency. We signed Jefferson as an upgrade.

Easy now, hard to keep track of the whole roster here early into TC.

If you're going to act like you know everything and go in a rant that surely took time to write, its hard to care about any point made when you start by talking about a player who hasn't been on the team for months

Several posts by a member here were removed.  Other posters who responded likely had their posts removed as well because the offensive posts were nested in the responses.  Apologies for letting this get out of hand.

The only surprise I read in all that was Adams.  None of the others mentioned would surprise me.

Surprises would be Nichols, Harris, Bighill.  😁
