Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed national kicker Brett Lauther to a two-year contract extension.

Wonder how much they overpaid him to stop him from talking to any other teams....

So what is overpaid?

As Bomber fans we all know how much frustration a crappy can cause.

I am going to go with $120K.

Didn't we pay Medlock $180K in 2019 and he's an import. I doubt Lauther got that much but he probably wasn't cheap either. Bombers were paying Castillo $7K per game at the end of last year. It wasn't a full season but cheap as an end of season rental.

Getting Castillo back in 2022 would be a good plan but IMO we won't be able to afford him. Hopes may rest on Mourtada on his ELC and Liegghio.

Shiltz is apparently going to hit the market. Not a terrible backup option

BC has offered Lawler $250k

I guess paying your starting QB $80k on an ELC means you can sped $600k on your 3 receivers...

Can we match $250?  I don't think so...

BC is making some interesting decisions, that's for sure... for a team with 2 of their starting Oline under contract... and no backup QB...  prioritizing another top WR seems whack.

Not sure I believe that offer. Time  to look at Wienike
 or Ellingson/Walker.  If the offer is even
close BC is basically paying for three 1000 yard receivers (including Whitehead and Burnam).Even with Rielly they never came close to that.     
Also wonder how this sits with Burnam who just signed for 165k

He would be a nice backup for ZC8.

Have to wonder if a top receiver wants a job on a team with 2 other top receivers, sharing targets from a 2nd year Canadian QB making $80k...  

Could kill his stats for future deals....

No one has to wonder, Lawler is as good as gone.  I think this means we can give Bailey a decent raise and go after someone like Acklin, Derel Walker, Ambles, or Ricky Collins to fill the gap.

I figured they would have spent there money on OL, like BC born Couture.

I can't see Winnipeg wanting to match $250K, not enough money left in the BB kitty.

IF true at $250 we can't keep everyone, it was great watching Lawler but that's the reality of having a team full of all stars they get paid and any team only has so much money to go around.

Bc went into the deep end to get a star Qb and flopped, now they seem hell bent on star receivers.....good luck IMO it will again be a flop..games are won and lost along the lines, and well BC along the lines is simply not very good.
