Who would do short yardage? One more reason to hate just 2 QB's dressed.

You bring in Nichols as #3, he doesn't dress.  You have McGuire or a new beefy guy come in as #2/dressed/shortyardage.  Nichols is insurance.  Or, wait for a possible injury and then pay up for a couch guy or trade.  Some "oldster" QBs should be without a home once the dust settles.  If one stays in shape, he could be in high demand.

Pigskin's list shows that CFL QBs are ageing.  The average is even older than I would have guessed.  Yet the young guns mostly aren't ready.  CFL is going to have a big QB problem very soon.  More needs to be done to bring up, develop and isolate talent.

Wow, I didn't realize Masoli and MBT were already 34.  Harris 36??!

Maybe the no-dressed (so no gameday cheque) #3 QB rule change was even worse than many of us thought...

Jones not taking long to put his thumbprint on the team...

In some ways, giving vets an early shot at FA is a favor to them, have to wonder if he's that smart... or he's cleaning house f some higher paid, older players, thinking he is so good he will find younger cheaper alternatives.  CAsher, Dennis and Rogers are some pretty big names...

Riders sign 4 players, Marshall, Teitz, Evan Johnson, Logan Ferland.

Yikes...they are bringing back two pylons from the worst OL I can remember in recent history. Ferland, in particular, is just way too small and got manhandled by pretty much everyone this year. If he's back he needs to pack on 40 lbs.
Some people take this forum way too seriously.

I believe a few of these guys are non-vaxxed, so that could be part of the reason they are being cut too. Know Hufnagel in Calgary said he will sign no player for next season if unvaxxed. Could be a major issue if the current air travel rules don't change by late spring, so can't have a guy only playing home games or within province (Alberta, Ontario) with multiple CFL cities.

I would like to see more teams follow Huff's lead including the Bombers, cut out the BS before it begins...again.

Riders have also said they will not sign any unvaxxed players.

Only one potential FA that we know might be unvaxxed... Eli... and I expect him to give the NFL a shot... not sure what they think about the unvaxxed... but I'm guessing he will get the shot or move on from football...

More concerned with the new recruits they bring in plus whoever they acquire in F.A..  Make it clear, FIOFO.

Wise move by the Stamps....I think everyone wants Bo to get back to what he once was, but I think we know how this ones going to end, and so do the Stamps.

Boy Calgary will have to think long and hard on this one. Is Bo on the down slide, if so, $100,000 bonus is a hard pill to swallow. I wouldn't be surprised to see him cut loose.

Wow, this is going to be interesting. I think the Stamps will pay it, if they cut him loose who?s going to take a chance on his health??? Ottawa gambled and lost on the same bet with Nichols, does arch nemesis Edmonton pick him up just for spite and to give them a mentor for Arbuckle!?!?
