You guys are both right. He is an elite QB who is also over rated. How is he over rated? Well for about the past 4 years his team has been picked by many to win the Grey Cup simply because of his presence. He has proven he can deliver with a team around him but he has also proven he cannot carry a team on his back as many CFL fans like to believe.

The bold is what I was about to say. He is a very, very good QB, but his biggest believers tout that he can take over a game with his throwing, running, and elusiveness (i.e. tough to bring down like a CFL Roethlisberger). I felt this way about him in the mid 2010s, but the fact of the matter is he has missed the playoffs 2 years in a row in our 9 team league. He is not carrying his teams on his back, which he is "rated" to do.

Does this mean the riders sign walker to replace Roosevelt?. Fajardo needs someone to throw to
I believe the Riders are through signing free agent receivers and will stay with what they have.

Walker is a complete mismatch for SSK.  SSK thrives on the short and quick pass game, and I don't see that changing even without McAdoo as Fine Upstanding Cody is limited in his ability and needs the emotional cushion that a high-percentage playbook provides.  Walker is the medium and deep threat.

I think the delay on Walker is no team can afford to pay him what he wants.  He may hold out until the bitter end and sign somewhere last minute.

P.S. Roosevelt to MTL is a good move for both.

I believe O'Day said that they would not be big players in free agency.  I do not know why this is but he seems to be keeping to this.  If I'm wrong please correct

Ya, Montreal will have 2 deep threats and Adams will light it up Lewis and Roosevelt and then have a solid ground game ta boot. Montreal moved up a place in the East division with this move and should finish behind Hamilton this year.

I wish they would because that would leave them no money at all to fix a very porous OL. I don't wish injuries on any player but Fajardo is going to be running for his life this year and I can't see how he lasts the season behind that OL.

Signing Walker or not...there is nothing out there outside a trade that will benefit the Rider O-line this year, and with minimal picks in the draft, that ain't helping them either, and that is rare a guy stepping in first year and shoring up an o-line anyway right out of the draft.

That's true...but they could add at least somewhat address their depth a bit. Their OL is 2-3 drafts away from being good but if they are going to spend money it should be on someone like Bomben who could actually help them. Labatte is old and can't withstand the rigors of a full season anymore, and then it's just garbage from there. The you have Dakoda Shepley who just signed with a big Hollywood talent agency and is hoping to expand his acting career. Is he committed to the CFL? If he isn't...whoo boy.

This was being reported on last week already. Lots of our mid level guys are eyeing up the XFL I guess.

But they got Josiah St. John back and he'll be the best O-lineman ever!
