Right, so nobody is getting cut, this is just more John Hodge speculation, Jones probably hasn't said anything regarding Boateng, Hodge doesn't know any more than anyone else and now people are squabbling over nothing! 


So, this was tweeted in response to Hodge's tweet...

Kwaku Boateng@KwakuBoat3ng
The next few weeks are going to be interesting



So who knows if he's been cut, or if Jones' negotiating strategy is "we don't NEED you.." or something in the middle...

If it's not until FA day, then you can bet there will be a bidding war for Boateng, and Betts might just end up getting some offers as well... I can see Walters trying for Betts at a value price with playoff money and playing with Jefferson, Jeffcoat as incentives, plus Kongbo's 2 NFL looks after playing here...
Unabashed positron.  Blue koolaid in my fridge.  I wear my blue sunglasses at night.  Homer, d'oh.

Pretty solid Canadian safety. Nice signing by the Riders.

I thought he died.

Isn't he like 98 years old?

He had serious concussions issues at one time, but that was so long ago everyone in Sask. has forgotten about them.  I guess he gots better now.

I remember wanting him after the 2015 season before he went to BC

B.C. Lions have released Canadian receiver and Vancouver native Lemar Durant.

He was reportedly the CFL?s highest-paid national receiver and was scheduled to earn $200,000 in 2022 as part of a contract extension he signed in December 2020.

Yes way overpaid. However as a Canadian receiver he'll land somewhere at a significantly reduced price. IMO we're going to see more big contracts dumped around the league. Could be some really talented players available to the big spenders.

Looking at the top 30 potential free agents, you could build a solid roster if you had the money.

Not expecting the Bombers to be big players except with our own players but it's an interesting list.

Ti Cats release Kalinic in order to chase NFL opportunities???  Two CFL seasons and only about 200 yards total yardage and he gets an NFL chance.
