I believe Bo will leave on his own terms.. he has earned it. The Stamps probably want to retain him on the coaching staff in the future. He would make an awesome OC once Dickenson moves on up after Huff retires.

There is a third option between paying the $100k, and cutting him loose.  Renegotiate the deal. 

Which will not happen if he has a sniff of anyone else being interested in him in FA. 

You think Chris Jones would not LOVE to have Bo on his team?

I think CGY tries to renegotiate, and then pays the $100k.  Or, trades him now...  no way they release him for nothing with Jones just down the street.

That's about right, top end CFL receivers should make $175,000 at most, all in.

The Edmonton Elks have reworked the contract of quarterback Nick Arbuckle for the 2022 season.

TSN reporter Dave Naylor has the details: The Elks have redone the contract of QB Nick Arbuckle who originally signed for ?22 under previous GM Brock Sunderland. New deal pays him same salary ($328k + plus $12k for housing) but $100k as a signing bonus. One year deal.

Edmonton acquired Arbuckle in a trade with the Toronto Argonauts on October 26, 2021 in exchange for a conditional 2022 CFL Draft pick and the rights to negotiation list QB Chad Kelly. Arbuckle re-signing in November meant the Elks gave the Argos Edmonton?s second round pick in the 2022 CFL Draft.

Early in training camp last year, Arbuckle was hampered by a hamstring injury, however he returned to full health, but was watching from the sideline as McLeod Bethel-Thompson led the Boatmen as the starter at QB prior to being dealt from The Six to Alberta.

He signed a one-year contract last February with more than half of his compensation paid upfront in the form of a $150,000 signing bonus. Also included in his deal was a base salary of $109,000, which worked out to approximately $6,055 per game, weekly housing payments of $666.67 and a $300 bonus every time he played 51 percent of the offensive plays in a game.

Arbuckle has intriguing upside and ability, evidenced by his performance in beating Winnipeg during Week 3. He completed 23-of-32 passes (71.9 percent) for 310 yards and one touchdown with another on the ground in a 30-23 win. That was one of only three losses the back-to-back Grey Cup champion Bombers suffered in 2021.

I think Calvillo tried coaching once before, may have even rose to O.C. but didn't find much success.  It sounds like Reinbold is taking a role below S.T. coordinator which would be surprising.

I think Orlondo Steinhauer handled it very discreetly and internally, but I would bet he had a blunt conversation with Reinbold about giving up that single in the Grey Cup.  Orlando is too classy not to back his guy publicly, but I would guess he let him know that a mistake was made and probably that in the future he would be making those critical decisions.  Reinbold would have taken that as a lack of trust, and decided it was better to move on.  I can't think of any other reason Reinbold would make a lateral move to a divisional rival after being with the Ti-Cats for 6 or 7 years.

This same thought occurred to me when I read Reinbold basically did a latteral move only a week later. Either he was respectfully pushed out or left on his own. That giving up the single call was one of those critical times where the "rouge" blew them the game. Still about a minute left, a field goal wins you the game instead of a TD if he runs it out. Think he would have made the 20-25 at minimum. Hamilton still almost pulled it off, but made it harder than they needed to. The prior single the returner gave up was more a misjudge of the ball sailing in, although if he saw how high it was going should have just let it fly over his head and give up no point. Probably best Reinbold did leave as might have become a scapegoat eventually for losing that GC.

I don't think that one specific scenario cost him his job. If it was a factor, it would have been one of several. If everything was going great there behind the scenes and the only correction to make was adjusting how to think through giving up a single in big, windy games then that's very easy for coaches as tenured as them.

Sometimes you just need a change of scenery. Maybe Reinbold wants more control and figures he has a better chance of getting it in Montreal than Hamilton where Steinhauer is firmly intrenched. Reinbold also has a defensive background and might get the chance to be more involved on that side of things in Montreal. He is probably a better compliment to Khari's offence thinking than Steinhauer's defence first background.
