Hmmmm.....

https://3downnation.com/2019/10/09/bombers-acquire-quarterback-zach-collaros-in-trade-with-argos/

The Bombers sent their third round choice in the 2020 CFL draft for the Argos fifth round selection. If Winnipeg re-signs Collaros Toronto receives a first round pick instead of the third.

Riders got a conditional 4th for Collaros. We don't know if the condition was met.
Argos got an unconditional 3rd that could become a 1st for Collaros.
Good job Toronto.

He will never be here next year. So we gave up a 3rd. round pick for some insurance.

I can live with that idea but I'd hate for our team to be responsible for another concussion and long term health issues. If previous injuries were leg or shoulder injuries that would be ok.

Kyle Walters offers clarification on the trade parameters?

To Winnipeg: QB Zach Collaros and a 2020 5th-round pick

To Toronto: 2020 3rd-round pick, in addition to a 2020 1st-round pick *conditional on Collaros re-signing with the #Bombers for next season.

No contract, no 1st.

Concussion issues aside I don?t mind this deal at all. The Docs have given him full approval to play, so who am I to judge what extent his concussions were and how prone he is to future concussions. Knowing all they know about concussions today I doubt the guy would continue to play if he felt his long term health was at a much higher risk than most anyone else playing contact sports.

Regarding the actual deal, moving down approx 15 spots at the mid-point part of the draft to get a guy that has the potential to run LaPo?s O very effectively I can see why Walter?s pulled the trigger.

IF Collaros gets playing time and shows he can move the O thru the air the run game should also wake from it?s 10 qtr slumber. And all this would help keep our D fresher.

Remember that we have a bye week at the end of the season, so Collaros could very well be ready to start for the playoffs. And you know O?Shea would love the opportunity to use the media to keep our opponent guessing leading up to the game...which could be in Regina Grin

What does it matter, Lapo would ruin him with his playcalling anyway.

Actually Lapo might be the best thing for him. Get the ball out quick.  Still, I think he gets the hit that ends it all sometime this season.

The deal got done 1 minute before the deadline. Talk about waiting till the last minute.

So, Toronto paid a 4th, a fifth and paid Collaro's salary for a bunch of games (non SMS),  They got a 3rd.  They didn't win the trade... 

The trade of a third for a fifth to prevent being Dinwiddied, priceless..

2018-214 yards passing per game, 9td passes, 13 ints
2017-196 yards passing a game, 8 td passes, 7 ints

Those are Collaros's numbers the past two years. Guy has played lousy the past few years and can't stay healthy. Not worth giving up a third.
