I think Edmonton and Ottawa would be bad PR moves among the reasons. Ottawa could have a shot at either Masoli or Evans, although Edmonton might make a pitch as well. It depends on whether they think Cornelius is the future. 2022 will be a re-building year in both cities.

Harris being released by both Edmonton and Montreal is not a good sign IMO for him to find a starters role. We'll see if he finds a home before free agency. Edmonton still has Arbuckle but he could be on the move too. He isn't shown as a potential free agent at the moment.

BC is a bit of a wildcard. If Reilly retires or is pushed out he could create an opening that is not there today.

It will be musical chairs in the off season. We'll start seeing decisions as potential free agents are re-signed and those that are not in the domino effect.

Maier might be in the running to end up with a new team. He may not be in the front running to start but he has a better chance elsewhere than in Calgary?

Sunderland signed Arbuckle to a contract just before he was fired, I don't know how many years that contract runs for but next year they are set with Arbuckle and Cornelius behind center, which is decent.

Most if not all of the starting QB's will stay with their own teams.

Nichols is done.

Arbuckle is the Elks starter.

Masoli or Evans to Ottawa.

Reilly takes a pay cut.

Harris takes the first backup spot in Toronto or Ottawa.

Backup QB's stay put.

Agree that either Evans or Masoli goes to Ottawa, who remains to be seen, but i see both Hamilton and the Bombers in the hunt for a backup Qb.  I don't see us standing put with what we got, there's too many talented Qb's out there that cropped up this year on other teams ie Maeir, Cornelius, Evans in Ottawa, to stay put with what we got. We need to upgrade but not break the bank, Harris i think will break our bank.

I agree with Hodge's take that Harris is too good a QB to be on the scrap heap.  He will start somewhere for less money, but he isn't going to be the back up.

I think Hamilton is going to lock up Evans before Feb 8th, and let Masoli go to free agency.  I think Harris is either going to Ottawa or Toronto.  I am not sold on McLeod Bethel, he snuck into the starter's position through the back door, and then his play deteriorated in the stretch.  If I had to put money on it, it would be Harris to Ottawa, Masoli to Toronto.

If Reilly retires (which I don't think he will), then the calculus changes.

I don't think Conrelius is a FA. I can see Maier staying with Calgary knowing BLM has some shoulder issue's.

I could see Harris realizing he is no longer going to be a #1 QB and he would accept a lesser role here as our #2 for back up money. He knows how good our OL and D are which would keep him healthy. ZC has remained relatively healthy but that could easily change and if it does SM or DB are not going to cut it. I say make Harris a reasonable offer to be a #2 here and see what he says. The fact that he would make playoff money and possibly win a GC could influence his decision. If he declines, no harm, no foul, so be it, can't hurt to make him an offer.

Agree, ZC8 played what 6 games total in 2019. Had a year off, and played in 14 game this year. If Covid doesn't effect the 2022 season, he could play 18-21 if we to go to the Grey Cup. A lot of game without getting banged up. Having a backup QB with CFL experience would go along way towards a 3 peat. Now if Strv. was to come back that could change everything.

Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed national long snapper Jorgen Hus and national running back Kienan LaFrance to two-year contract extensions.

The club has also added American offensive lineman Tommy Champion to the roster.

T.Harris will start somewhere.  No way he's #2.  The young up & comers aren't ready yet.  Anyone betting their whole season on Maier, Caleb, Cornelious, Duck, etc, is going to be punished by being fired like the EDM crew.  With T.Harris you probably don't have a playoff/GC-winning QB, but you do have a known quantity that will win you season games and bring respectability to your club (ehem, OTT, EDM, BC).  He's a perfect "rebuild mode" QB.

BLM and/or M.Reilly are going to retire in 0 to 2 years.  Bet on it.  That leaves a massive hole in QB talent with CFL experience.  That means T.Harris and the "lesser" "loose(ish)" QBs like Nichols and Masoli and MBT are going to stay in demand.  T.Harris will start somewhere, as will Masoli and MBT.

Nichols is the wildcard and would make the perfect backup for WPG or Lapo's OTT, as he'll have to take peanuts if he wants to avoid retirement.

My big prediction is BLM retires in FA and CGY makes a big surprise #1 QB signing.  Masoli?  MBT?  Harris?  Even M.Reilly?  My money is on Masoli.

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

TBurg is right just Maier and Mitchell in Cow Town. Something might happen there as well.

 | think Toronto isn't content with BMT and will look to upgrade with Masoli/Reilly/Evans
I don't see Jpnes being comfortable with Arbuckle and Cornelius and may also be a player for one of the above. Harris or BMT probably ends up in Ottawa cause no one else wants to go there.
