Quote from: the paw on December 15, 2021, 05:29:28 PM3down just posted the Bombers pending free agency list.Literally, we have 3 starters under contract. 2 DBs (Nichols and Alford) and Kyrie Wilson.Both QBs, all our running backs, our top 7 OL, all 5 starting receivers are free agents. As are the entire DL (not just the starters, but Kongbo, Rose, and Hansen). We'll see what they announce over the next 2 weeks, but there is definitely going to be some roster turnover this offseason.

Quote from: Blue In BC on December 15, 2021, 05:42:33 PMThat's not quite right. At least it depends on whose list is correct. Both Demski and Adams show under contract. Alford doesn't show under contract. That's per the Bomber website list. A few rookies are under contract but only 4 starters with Wilson and Nichols the two on defence along with the 2 receivers.
Quote from: the paw on December 15, 2021, 06:41:55 PMWhere on the Bomber website do they show player contract status? There is no column for it on the roster page, at least that I can see. It wouldn't surprise me a bit if they have extended Demski and Adams already, but I just can't see where they are stating that.
Quote from: Sir Blue and Gold on December 15, 2021, 06:45:01 PMI think 3Down is wrong about Darvin Adams. He signed a three year deal in 2020 so should be good through the 2022 season. https://www.bluebombers.com/2020/02/09/bombers-sign-receiver-darvin-adams-three-year-extension/
Quote from: Jesse on December 15, 2021, 12:15:53 AMThe only thing that makes me want to disagree with this is that I can't see Alford signing an extension without getting his NFL look over the off season.Perhaps this is just moving all players who are actually under contract to the 2022 active roster. Everyone else's contract ended after the Grey Cup.
Quote from: Jesse on December 15, 2021, 12:18:29 AMMy largest concern now is Drew Desjarlais.Probably the best interior guy in the NFL - I can see him getting the Sukh Chungh contract from someone that steals him away from us.
Quote from: Blue In BC on December 15, 2021, 03:27:02 PMIIRC we have 3 2021 draft choices that returned to school that are expected for TC 2022. We'll also have a bunch of draft choices in 2022 that could be looking for roster spots and a few that go back to school for a last season.Obviously we don't know who might decide to release intentionally. Or who our re-signing interest may slide based on SMS or draft choices looking to take some spots.Our Canadian depth has been really good the couple of seasons. That said, space for rookies will be made. Not all of them will end up on the PR but a few will and a few will be on the active roster as well.Watching the re-signings and free agency is always interesting. Not everything we may want to do is within the teams ability. I would think a lot of the initial priorities will be on Canadian starters and Collaros getting secured.
