Interesting. If he does sign the 1st question is what does it cost us. Does it take away SMS from signing other key players?

It suggests to me that we don't re-sign Prukop and Streveler would also become our short yardage Qb and our # 2. IDK what Prokop earned but we'd likely sign an ELC development guy as our # 3 QB.

We already have #3QB on ELCs coming to camp.

Its either Streve or Prukop, might be why Prukop hasn't been signed yet.

Wonder if Collaros takes a little haircut to land Streve.  Or if Steveler even cares about the salary on a one year deal. 

Unabashed positron.  Blue koolaid in my fridge.  I wear my blue sunglasses at night.  Homer, d'oh.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with quarterback Chris Streveler.

Streveler (6-1, 216; South Dakota/Minnesota; born: January 6, 1995, in Naperville, IL.) returns to the Blue Bombers after spending the last four seasons in the National Football League, suiting up for nine regular season games and starting one during his days with the Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets.

Streveler first signed with the club on May 4th, 2018, and was the club's starter to open the season just a few weeks later following the sudden retirement of Darian Durant and an injury to Matt Nichols near the end of training camp. That made him the first straight-from-college quarterback to start Week 1 for a CFL team since Anthony Calvillo with the Las Vegas Posse in 1994 and the first for the Blue Bombers since John Schneider in 1968. He threw for 11 touchdowns in his first season in Winnipeg while rushing for 10 more, making him the first Winnipeg QB since Matt Dunigan to hit double-digit touchdown totals through the air and along the ground.

During the 2019 championship run, he again stepped in for an injured Nichols and guided the club to a 3-5 record. His 726 yards rushing that year established a club record by a quarterback, eclipsing Ken Ploen's mark of 541, set in 1960.

Streveler started 12 games in 2018 and 2019 with the Blue Bombers, going 4-8 in those games. He threw for 2,698 yards with 19 touchdowns and 19 interceptions during his days with the club, and rushed for 1,167 yards and 22 touchdowns.

Streveler began his college career at the University of Minnesota, playing both quarterback and receiver before transferring to the University of South Dakota. In his two seasons with the Coyotes, he threw for 6,081 yards and 54 touchdowns. In 2017, Streveler was named MVFC (Missouri Valley Football Conference) Offensive Player of the Year and was a finalist for the Walter Payton Award as the most outstanding offensive player in the NCAA Division 1 Football Championship Subdivision.

Wow....good news since Dru is leaving us and he's definitely gained some more experience down south.   He's a dynamic player and his teammates love him to death.   If we can scheme him in our O package as we did in the 2019 GC game, defences will be cringing trying to stop us.  He's just so entertaining to watch and he's tough as nails....

Excellent signing. A steal @ $120K + Bonuses. Tell me again why Dru was worth $300k? ;D

Love, love, love this news. Best QB tandem in the league. I'd have to think Pierce is pretty excited to put his 2024 offensive system together.

The Strevelation!!

It sounds like he took a big discount compared to other offers because he recognizes the marketing opportunities as a fan favorite in Winnipeg. That's a smart man.
You can only get paid to be a football player until you retire, but you can make a lot more for longer if you are smart about engaging fans and the community!

Someone should tell BO20 this.

Because he can consistently complete passes and throws very few interceptions

I don't begrudge dru brown for getting what he got. Streveler is basically a wildcat running back for 2nd down and short yardage situations. Apple vs orange

Their circumstances are very different, that's why. It's a good signing and I'm happy we have a backup with some experience but it's not highway robbery or anything.

Must kill the Riders they couldn't sign him for that price, he's exactly what they need to spell Harris.

Given the rule change that allows 2QBs on the field in 2024, I'm looking forwards to opposing DCs crapping their pants when they see Collaros under centre with Strev and eventual RB1 in a tandem backfield.  Handoff to Strev - does he put his head down and run, or toss a screen to RB1 in the flat?  Pitch to Strev with RB1 as lead blocker - does Strev run, or toss a rope down the sidelines to Lawler?  Toss a screen to Strev in the flat, and wonder if he puts his head down and rumble, or drop one downfield to Lawler or Woli?  What about ZC under center and a direct snap to Strevvy in the backfield?

Buck must be licking his chops in anticipation.....

There is no guarantee he'd have been able to do that behind any other OLine than Winnipeg's, which was ranked #1 by  large margin.  Would he get the same numbers in Ottawa, which had/has the worst ranked OL in the league for 2 seasons in a row, according to Pro Football Focus?  I doubt it.

Really pleased with the signing by Walters and definitely anticipating healthy running by Strev.

Also improved in reading defenses and a better understanding of when and where to releasee the ball

On paper ------ a great 1-2 punch
