Of the remaining FA's on the board, who would you pick, and why would it be Frankie Williams?

If we can?t land Janarion Grant, then Frankie Williams would be a good choice, although I wonder if we have the budget.

Two remaining free agents that could help us with depth might be Stefan Charles or Brett Boyko.

I want Trumaine Washington. Frankie Williams would suffice as well, although I'd rather have Grant. Gotta give a big thumbs down to Boyko. The guy is a pylon.

Washington would be great. He always played well against the Bombers. Williams is a good DB and returner but getting Grant is the # 1 choice.

He hasn't signed anywhere and that's curious?

Now that we have landed my first pick which was Ellingson.

I would go with Cody Speller, which allow us to go DL in the first round of the draft.

I think we need to go DL in the early rounds to create the rotation necessary.

I think Speller was injured in 2021 but don't know where he is in the rehab or salary expectation. Depending on whether Dobson is coming to TC may determine any additional need on the OL.

Still some hope we can get Eli back

Eli is a monster and has a edge to him. Would be nice to have him back.

Ricky Collins, they lost two of their top receivers, they signed Ellingson but can't expect a CFL rookie to jump in and start.  Not interested in using McNight.

I wonder why Collins has played for 4 teams in a relatively short career. He seems to be productive.

Starting a rookie is not my 1st choice but Lawler and Bailey started as rookies. So it depends on pedigree and pro experience.

It's a bit early to not consider McKnight. He was used in short patterns similar to how they used Bailey in 2019. Collaros wanted him to make the roster from nearly the 1st day of TC. So he must see something we haven't seen in games.

Performance could be related to HOW they use him rather than how they could use him. Also look at the receivers we had in front of him. He was not going to be a primary target or a deep threat target.

All of that said, I'd like to get a taller, bigger receiver. There will be a few 2021 TC receivers returning and we'll have a dozen fighting for a roster spot.

We'll see. No guarantees he makes the roster at this point.

Not sure if Speller was injured or unvaxxed... whichever, Walters traded him away for a 6th rounder... and never saw the field...

Agree on signing Ricky Collins. We let him get away before, bring the guy back and our receiving corps is set
