Why are teams spending big money at center? Two of the three highest paid offensive lineman?

The centers are invariably Canadian, so they get the National premium.   McEwen and Beard are also established veterans in the prime of their career, and are the two best centers in the league.

But McMillan and Chung aren't that far off what the centers are making either.  McMillan is Ottawa's best interior lineman (when healthy), and BC thought Chung was going be the Lion's best interior guy when they signed him.  I imagine Desjarlais will get a big raise in his next contract as a result of the same factors.

For sure. Beard and McEwen just happen to be the best interior OL players on their respective teams and earn the coin. Teams allot so much per position group in their SMS and then contract negs, timing, depth, skill level etc kind of determine who gets what. On our team Desjarlais probably is the next guy in line for big coin. Not because he is better than Couture per se, but with Eli waiting in the wings we can take a little more risk on holding the line on contract negs with him. There are many factors as to why a certain team may value their current OC higher than their OGs or vice versa.

BLUE BOMBERS AGREE TO TERMS WITH FORMER CFL ALL-STAR DEFENSIVE BACK WINSTON ROSE

WINNIPEG, MB., October 20, 2021 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has agreed to terms with former CFL all-star defensive back Winston Rose. Rose returns to Winnipeg after leading the league in interceptions (9) in 2019, and spending the 2020 season with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Rose was named a CFL all-star in 2019 after finishing with nine interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) and 58 defensive tackles, while appearing in all 18 regular season games. He also registered 15 defensive tackles and one interception in the club's postseason run, which culminated in a Grey Cup win.

Over his CFL career, Rose has recorded 14 interceptions and 111 defensive tackles in 40 games.

BLUE BOMBERS TRANSACTIONS: OCTOBER 20, 2021

WINNIPEG, MB., October 20, 2021 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the following roster transactions:

Added to roster:
American running back Shaq Cooper

Blue Bombers sign former Elks, Lions RB Shaq Cooper

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed former B.C. Lions and Edmonton Elks' running back Shaq Cooper.

The 28-year-old was released by the B.C. Lions last week. He recorded 33 carries for 142 yards and one touchdown in five games with the team as well as 11 receptions for 69 yards. He joined the team as a free agent in February 2021.

The Fort Hays State product started four games in 2019 with the Edmonton Elks and ran the ball 65 times for 352 yards and two touchdowns along with 15 receptions for 112 yards.

The five-foot-ten, 190-pound ball carrier was a star over three seasons in the NCAA with the Tigers (2012, 2015-2016). He rushed 456 times for 2,768 yards and 19 touchdowns while making 73 receptions for 736 yards and ten scores.

Cooper is a speedy one-cut back who can make an impact as a receiver out of the backfield.

Andrew Harris suffered a knee injury in Winnipeg's recent victory over the Edmonton Elks. He missed practice on Tuesday due to the injury and it appears Cooper should help provide some depth in the backfield.

LOL. That makes more sense. But I don't know why the 1st transactions are so messed up in the 1st place. What's with Castillo going to IR though? Is that just a shuffling of the deck so to speak? Also if he was in Mexico, you'd think he'd be added to suspended not IR. Odd.

It must be necessary to add a new player to active before you can suspend him for the covid protocol.

In theory. Castillo wasn't even in Winnipeg when the transaction showed him going to IR. I'm not aware he's injured.  OTOH Rose goes to the suspension list. It may be like the PR where you can pay more than the minimum.

All in how their contract is structured I would think.

I take this to mean Rocquemore is going to the PR. There must be an import being added so perhaps Hardrick will dress? Or Taylor moves from inactive to game day roster.

Lowes showed on the roster last week but I think that was an error and he was actually moved from suspended to PR. Probably a short move to AR as part of the process from suspended before he can be moved to PR?

I don't really expect Lowes on the AR this week. Why he still shows on the AR part of the roster to be corrected today? Should be some moves off the PR today. We're a few over limit.

EDIT: Apparently Lowes is on the AR this week. Hardrick is back but listed as back up, McKnight and Houston still on roster. One of these will be inactive but that might still be Taylor as well.

GAME #11:


Ed Tait   @EdTaitWFC
No Andrew Harris tomorrow night; Brady Oliveira will start at RB. Jermarcus Hardrick back, listed behind Pat Neufeld at RT

Harris to the 6-game injured list, FYI

Ted Wyman   @Ted_Wyman
As expected, Andrew Harris won't play this week for #Bombers vs. #BCLions. Brady Oliveira gets the start at RB. Bit surprising to see Jermarcus Hardrick, who hasn't been practising, on the roster, though he's currently listed as a backup OL. #CFL

Darrin Bauming  @DarrinBauming
Andrew Harris (knee) moves to the 6-Game Injured List. He is eligible to come off early, but I wouldn't expect to see too much of him prior to the playoffs.
A close second to the lead in the CFL rushing race, Harris would trade that title for another ring in a second. #Bombers

Our PR shows 19 players. Two over limit. Castillo shows on the AR but one transaction showed him moved to IR? I suspect he'll be moved to suspended along with Rose for this week.

However what happens about the 2 extra currently on the PR and the 2 on the 1 game IR over the next week or so will cause some movement.
