Simonise had the highest upside of the Nat rec's we've drafted, but failed to show enough advancement.  Whether it was caused by the logjam at Nat rec here, or being away from home, who knows.  Unfortunately, the combo of being cut and being picked up by his "home" team might just light the fire under his butt to make good on the potential we spent a good draft pick on...

I've heard that the Lions might only roster 2 QB's on their AR. What is the advantage of do so? They can't add another player since " 3 QB's " is a separate category on it's own. Sure now 1 could be a Canadian but he still would have to be listed as a QB and only play as a QB.

It would reduce the game day payroll. Is that what they intend with this idea?

From what I understand all teams will have to follow this rule next season, I guess that may have played into the Bombers decision not to retain 4 QB's.

Interesting. Next year we have to add a 2nd Global player to the AR. I'm not sure if 1 or both will remain as SMS exempt. Regardless, salary is still an operating expense against profitability. Eliminating a QB from the AR does a few things.

1. The AR would remain at 45 players.
2. Eliminating a salary that WAS counted against the SMS ( QB ) creates some money to offset the increase to the ELC in 2020.

Not really in favor of any of this. If we're going to need to roster 2 Global player in 2020 then they need to bring more to TC than 4 only. Since those players were all drafted I would think they are non counters in any case.

Long term developing QB's with only 2 on the AR may or may not be an issue. One season after changing the ratio rule to include Canadian QB's? Now they have to make the roster as a no worse than a # 2 QB?

That's not going to help their cause.

Good for him.  But hopefully he doesn't have too much success!

It might mean that he is not able to play the next game, Ditto for Fajardo as possibly missing a game or two.

Not surprised, when the Bombers released him I said it was only a matter of time before he ended up in either Montreal or Saskatchewan.

I said the Riders as Collaris is always one hit away from ending his career.

Zach Collaros has been put on the six-game injured list and, according to Craig Dickenson, he isn't going to be with us for a while.

Head coach won't specify as to whether Collaros is concussed.

With his concussion history if it is a concussion this could be career ending. Sad to see it.
