Spencer Wilson [...]  You have to think he would be of interest to the Riders.  Their OTs are no great shakes, and Wilson would be an upgrade on Clark or Bladek. 

Ssssshhhh!  Don't give the enemy any good ideas!  Hopefully he'll sign in the east.  Besides, the only quality SSK looks for in an OL is "can he hold?".

Don't think so, Sask. tried to low-ball him and he walked away without a counter offer.
This is true.  They wanted Johnson so much that they did exactly what you said.  Also, what I am hearing is that IF Jefferson signs in the NFL it will be with the Miami Dolphins.

This  is news from about a month ago. The people that liked him out of the Brian Flores staff were all fired shortly after Willies tryout. All new position coaches implemented.  Could throw a wrench in Willie getting a decent contract there. Time will tell....

Never!  Not until my dying breath!  And even then...  Grin Grin Cheesy Cheesy

No he is right it is just the Riders.

It's weird... I saw something this year I have never seen before.  Perhaps it's because WPG went so deep in the playoffs.  Starting in the WSF I saw WPG's OL hold more than I've ever seen them hold.  Not quite SSK-level holding, but definitely flag-worthy holding, even by the CFL's diminished standards.  It wasn't just WPG... CGY and SSK and HAM were holding like mad too, in the WSF, WF, GC.  I think each game saw 0 or 1 holds actually penalized.

The revelations to me were:

1. The refs will "let them play" in the playoffs, for the most part.  No holds barred (hehe)!  More so this year than recent years.

2. Our OL can hold with the best of them when it's required/allowed.  I guess we must coach them clean throughout the year then let them loose in the playoffs?  I actually never knew our guys had that level of "hold" in them... good to see they are disciplined enough to turn it on and off based on the situation and what the coaches tell them to do.

As for SSK... they are on a special level of hold, and they don't just save it for the post-season.  They hold all season long to egregious levels and for some reason the refs let most of it slide.  And not just their OL: their RBs, WRs, DBs, STs, everyone holds there.  Makes me wonder why we don't egregiously hold all year too?  Or do refs only let it slide for SSK?  Wink

(The GC had a heck of a lot of HAM on WPG DPI going on too, but that's a whole other story...)

Spencer Wilson is mediocre. Be a great fit with the rest of the Riders mediocre OL.

+1. Almost in that order., just flipping QB to the top and Jefferson to # 2. If we re-sign Jefferson I might exclude Roh and go with a rookie DE on the PR.

I have pretty much 0 qualms with this. D.Jones is a nice STer tho. And I'd like Adam's back, but I also wanna see us upgrade over him if that makes sense? He's a solid #2 but I don't want him to be "the guy"

There was no order to my list but if there was:

Zach or Matt
Jefferson
Thomas
Miles
Nevis
Adams
Roh

And I would agree, if we sign WJ5, we probably don't need Roh.

Also if we at going after a #1 receiver in FA, we can't afford Adams.
