Just read Sask has signed James Franklin.

I assume that Mass would be key in that signing. If my info is still current that would be five QBs. Fajardo, Bennett, Harker, Hansen and now Franklin. He was snapped up pretty quickly.

Maybe they saw that TOR became trade-bait QB-central last year and want a piece of that action!  Wait until other teams have QB injuries and charge them an arm & leg for a Franklin trade.

Bummer --- I was really hoping our #3 would be Franklin as I still think he might be decent in a "real" team.  It would be worth the peanut $$ to find out, IMHO.  Guess SSK will do the work for us.

And now we have to really pray to your deity of choice that Zach can stay standing all year... because there is literally no serviceable non-unknown QB left in the CFL.  Hmmm.... maybe KW has a line on Strevie not sticking in the NFL and back for labor day??  Hmmmm... KW doesn't seem like a big enough gambler to be gambling like he is right now, there's got to be something else going on.

Zach needs to be under strict instructions not to go up the gut in game #1: the GC rematch against HAM.  I wouldn't let Simoni anywhere near him.  I'm going to be having a heart attack all game long.  Hell, if it was me I might start McGuire!!  Shocked

Well, that means Bennett shakes loose...  does Buck like him enough to bring him back?  Of all the QB's out there, I think he's one of the best at the "3rd QB as a FB" emergency QB and ST demon...

I believe that you can keep as many as you want but why would you?  Bennet has played out his option so he may not be signed.  Nice to have arms at training camp but that is all.  Most teams will keep three and one as a prospect.

DBs love Hall's system too. Lots of opportunities for interceptions and big plays. Don't know what kind of budget we have left but we should be able to sign a high quality DB if we have the SMS.
