Quote from: theaardvark on January 12, 2022, 03:30:59 PMHis body of work and highlight reel from last year will get him serious looks. As to the DUI, he was upfront, contrite and his team accepted him back without question. In a league with players like Antonio Brown, a DUI will hardly stop a player being signed.I really think we will see him in the NFL next year, and for a couple years. He has the size and skills, and has developed before our eyes these last 2 years into the best in the league. There is no reason he can't get a gig and stick in the NFL. He's not the player he was 2 years ago...Sucks, really... but I think we are going to lose 3 or 4 to the NFL this year... when was the last time that happened to a team, let alone the entire league.
Quote from: 3rdand1.5 on January 13, 2022, 01:33:56 PMHard to keep up, so sorry if this is not correct....but Reilly is not signed..rumoured to be retiring, BO re-signed in the 400ish mark so the big ticket guys have seen a big value reduction. With Dane re-upping in the 300's Adams at low 400's, Arbuckle in the mid 200's, Ott if they stick with Matty one would assume his deal would be low (200's maybe 300's with heavy play bonuses), if they go with Massoli his value should be par with Dane I would assume...if he decided to get vaxxed... That really takes out the most most experienced guys, would BC stick with Rourke, if so he would be on a low contract, who would T.O go with, but probably a lesser "star" so chances are also a lower contract. If true that Fajardo is due to be over 500 for 2022 then Sask. is overpaying based on everyone else...but the real question is what is Zach worth? 450 with bonuses that could take him over 500? Biggie and Simoni are the top LB's in the league, I believe Simoni is at around 150, so what is Biggie worth 165-175?

Quote from: Blue In BC on January 13, 2022, 02:30:10 PMReilly doesn't show on the free agent list but word in Vancouver is a belief he may retire. Nothing is written in stone except perhaps his current contract being an issue going forward.
Quote from: Jesse on January 13, 2022, 04:00:20 PMReilly is not a Free Agent, but I've read that the Lions probably don't want to keep him at his current salary - even after restructuring. Can't imagine it's going to sit well with Reilly to re-do his contract again.
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: Sir Blue and Gold on January 13, 2022, 01:19:40 PMWe'll see but I doubt it. Antonio was an established NFL superstar with a friend in Tom Brady. Kenny Lawler is none of those things.
Quote from: theaardvark on January 13, 2022, 04:46:36 PMCollaros has been well protected behind our Oline, and with our OC's play calling. As long as we sign most of our Oline to keep him safe and comfortable, and Buck can assure him to continue to playcall to keep him safer, I can't see us not getting Collaros back at a reasonable salary. It might be the highest in the league, and he would deserve it. Having won MOP last year, kinda says he's the best in the league... and deserving of the pay along with the accolades. But, I think, he also wants assurances he is going to be protected, so unless a team comes up with some stellar Oline signings, if Bryant extends, I think Collaros is right behind...The wild card is Ott. Lapo has big "Hut HUT" Bob Wylie there, who light attracts and train up a good oline... although Lapo / Wylie's crew gave up 53 sacks last year vs. our 16... how much of that was Oline and how much was QB, hard to tell. Regardless, Zach needs to be protected, and he won't find better protection than here, especially if Stanley signs soon...
Quote from: ichabod_crane on January 13, 2022, 05:14:15 PMWhat does he expect? Sucks for 3 years straight and expects to still make his original money? Very suspect health condition now too. His arm may be shot for good. If BC was smart try to trade him if anyone else would be foolish to take on that contract or cut him already unless he accepts retirement. How else to pay Lucky and field a decent team under the cap? Something has to give.
Quote from: blue_gold_84 on January 13, 2022, 05:28:22 PMI'm inclined to agree. I think the odds are against him when you consider his age and position. However, I'd love to see him beat the odds, just to be clear. It'd be a nice story.This. Imagine comparing Antonio Brown and Kenny Lawler...
Quote from: Jesse on January 13, 2022, 05:45:03 PMWylie actually isn't on their staff anymore.Paul Charbonneau is taking over.
Quote from: theaardvark on January 13, 2022, 06:29:00 PMNot comparing them talent wise, but commenting that the NFL has a passion against domestic abuse, but doesn't seem to be too concerned with minor charges like a DUI where no one was hurt...
