Quote from: theaardvark on January 11, 2022, 05:01:55 PMStill think his body of work will land Lawler an NFL opportunity. And even maybe Bailey. IF they return, they deserve top dollar, for sure. And I have faith that saner heads will start to see what an illogical SMS move the Lucky signing was. Adams is probably going to get slightly less money offered, and may stay in spite of other GM's making him an offer (I can see Ott coming after some of our O) I think the biggest issue with us "making a fair market offer" to our players is they all played too good, and what is "fair" will not be affordable for all of them. We won't be able to sign them all for "fair" wages. We might squeeze one or two more in because of small Walters negotiated discounts, but we *are* going to lose players. We are going to have holes to fill because there are just too many players to resign that deserve raises. I am very happy so far at the ones we have locked down, and hope there are a few more coming before FA...
Quote from: Sir Blue and Gold on January 12, 2022, 02:22:33 PMI think Lawler landing an NFL spot is a bit of a longshot. It could happen I suppose. He's got the height but he's 27, was already looked at once (drafted in the 7th round) and has a recent DUI which the NFL won't like one bit. There are a ton of good receivers available down there and that's a position that is notoriously hard for CFL players to crack.

Quote from: theaardvark on January 12, 2022, 03:38:56 PMSayles went to BC, not the NFL... but true... we are generating prospects...
Quote from: Blue In BC on January 12, 2022, 03:43:53 PMIIRC he spent 2020 NFL PR time on Vikings roster after bring released by Bombers to explore NFL opportunities.
Quote from: theaardvark on January 12, 2022, 03:52:49 PMI stand corrected...yes, he did toil for the Vikes on their PR... OK, so we sent 4 to the NFL in 2020... 1 is still down there, 2 came home ,and one defected to BC. I'm happy if we can maintain that retention post NFL look... betting that most of them realize the best way to get another look is to come back here...
Quote from: Blue In BC on January 12, 2022, 04:19:04 PMKongbo is down there again and we might lose Rose as well. I'm not a fan of 1 year deals but it's the nature of the CBA. Actually we might lose Castillo taking another shot too. Since Rose and Castillo only played 3 regular season games we aren't exactly shedding SMS either. Kongbo played all 14 games but what his 2021 SMS was IDK.Lawler Nichols, Bailey and Richardson are not locks to stay in the CFL.Bad enough losing players to other CFL teams but going to NFL still hurts.
Quote from: Tiger on January 13, 2022, 01:46:39 AMDane Evans signed with the Cats but I don?t see how much the contract was for.
Quote from: ichabod_crane on January 13, 2022, 07:33:49 AMFrom the articles I read online so far, Evans is their de facto #1 QB now. So Masoli is free to look elsewhere I am assuming unless he wants to play for backup money in Steeltown.
Quote from: Ridermania on January 13, 2022, 11:53:28 AMMasoli is not vaxxed, this will play a major part of getting into Canada and flying across the country.Evans contract is high 300's - low 400's with bonus numbers.
