Well they should also have a hate on for Banks and Addison too, as they were invisible in the Grey Cup as well. And Evans, stunk the joint out in the Grey cup, left the game a broken man, get rid of him, we ll take him!! Same with Tasker, he?s far from finished!! I think maybe his price tag is too high and the tabbies are playing hard ball?would love to see him come here

Well, they did in a way by signing Masoli which was a huge show of no-faith in giving Evans the reigns after leading them to their best regular season record ever.

I think we've shot our bolt on free agency at this point.  But man, oh man, there are still good receivers out there.

Derel Walker is the best in the league, but clearly is going to hold out for more dollars than we could ever hope to shake out of the couch cushions. 

But Armanti Edwards, Rhymes, and Roosevelt are all 1000 yard guys still out there, and Luke Tasker probably bounces back to 1000 yard season if he stays healthy.  One of those guys will eventually agree to play at a discount, and even though I am optimistic about Bailey, it would be awfully tempting to add one these guys.

I agree, I think the Bombers should sign one of these receivers, I would sign Tasker.

I disagree. I think we are moving forward with our core guys from last year and have realized that a breakout receiver is just not worth the dough in our system. I think the Bowman and Matthews experiments left a bad taste in Walters' mouth and he decided to tighten up the screws elsewhere on the roster. And I'm fine with that.

While I expect Buck to put his stamp on the offense, I think our pass game will remain conservative with a heavy serving of AH33 in order to maximize Collaros' health.

I agree. Lawler and Bailey showed us more than our previously highly touted FA bust receiver signings of Bowman and Matthews, both mega busts. I m hinking if we pickup someone, it?s going to fit within our cap space and on our terms, but that said, I think we ll pickup someone as there?s a few out there but we won?t break any piggy banks to do it

Darn was hoping we could snag him...does this take BC out of the Derel Walker picture?  I think it will...

I would say that a Derel Walker signing may be imminent.

BC won't be signing Walker now. If we were #2 on Walker's list, we are now #1.

Meh...it's not like they didn't have good receivers last year too. There problem was OL and D. Not sure much has changed.

"Good things come to those who wait". Derel Walker signing with the Bombers looks a little better every day.

Lions just signed Caleb Holley as well, so they're definitely out on Walker, or to say it another way, he's in with someone else
