call me crazy here but a Ed Gainey, Nick Marshall or Dashaun Amos would be amazing additions to our secondary. From the East....audible here what about Antoine Pruneau over Brandon Alexander??? A canadian Safety?

Is Amos a FA? Because that would be an amazing - though completely out of nowhere - addition.

The rest...I wouldn't have wanted 5 years ago, much less now...

Marshall is a bit of a head case. Takes undisciplined penalties. Gainey would look sweet here.

Marshall definitely plays on the edge and sometimes goes over. Very aggressive player. Gained is a ball hawk. Neither will be cheap to acquire

What are you guys talking about?  Marshall extended in Regina, and Gainey is signing with Edmonton. 

We have Rose, Nichols, Maston, and Taylor locked down.  If we can get Darby back, we are golden.  Even if we don't Demetrious Houston may be ready to take the next step.

If we're going to spend money I think the biggest holes are at slot and receiver. We've currently got:
Nic Demski
Rasheed Bailey
Blake Jackson
Kelvin McKnight
Drew Wolitarksy and Brendan O'Leary-Orange

Even assuming the scouting department can hit a homerun that's still a pretty ho-hum group. Factor in an injury or two and it's mission critical very quickly. We obviously don't have the blank cheques that some teams have but we absolutely should add some experience and depth there if we can.

If Greg Ellingson comes in too high some other names (I think) that are still floating around:
Markeith Ambles
Ricky Collins Jr.
Jaleon Acklin
RJ Harris
BJ Cunningham
Josh Huff

I think Acklin is committed to Ottawa.  I think BJ Cunningham has been a bit too injured and old for my taste.  I have never been enthusiastic about RJ Harris, but I don't know why.

I think any of the others on your list could work.  Huff did yeoman's work for me in fantasy on a couple of occasions.  I was also impressed by how good a year Ricky Collins had.  But I agree, we need a proven veteran who can put up 700-800 yards over 18 games.

Ellingson had always been awesome.  An under the radar type guy..

Not much else out there. Ricky Collins could flourish here also

Whyte was reported to be going to the Lions. His advantage is that he's a National. Castillo is an import but might be our best option if he is affordable. At the moment I'm guessing the Bombers hope Mourtada improves or Liegghio wins the job outright. Having 1 kicker gives us an advantage with an extra sport for a DI. Also saves some SMS on not having a more expensive veteran.

Media seems to be suggesting Castillio is gone.

I think it'll be a point of weakness again next season.
