Id like Cody Speller if he's available, Frankie Williams and or Ciante Evans  Ambles from Calgary woud be great too.

Speller spent nearly the entire time in the tub after leaving WFC.  I seriously didn't see him start in any game, though I'm sure he must have.  Just like Nevis, it turned out to be a win to let them go.  Now... if either guy is healthy, they will be monster.  But that's the $64k question, isn't it.

I feel like we rely on our own OL dev cycle now rather than bringing in FA OL.  I think we're good with Gray/Eli and whoever we have as "the new guy" backup.

As for Collins.... Collins would be a great pickup.  Dude is almost always a great pick in fantasy.  He gets the receptions, yds and tds.  But does he have "MOS locker room attitude"?  Don't know.  Haven't seen anything to say he doesn't.

I remember Eli being rumoured to be trying to get some NFL looks... had he been vaxxed and played in the GC, he'd have had a lot better shot at that.  I think there will be a team that needs a starting Nat OG that is versatile that will take a chance on him ahead of him signing here as 6th man... *IF* he gets vaxxed.

Ards the Guy could not make the Bombers, plus he cant be that smart as he isnt vaxxed.

HIS decisions don't scream good choices.

He DID make the Bombers, and was 6th man to an Oline that took Every AllStar Nomination except C, which they should have won as well. 

As to vaccine, we are not sure what that story is. 

He was touted as a solid NFL prospect before things went sideways on him in college...

As to "good choices", he chose to be here the last two years...

I disagree that he cannot make the Bombers roster. IIRC, Eli was projected to be among the top OLs on his NFL draft class but was injured and became undecided if he will continue his football career or not. He found his love for football again when the Bombers drafted him. In 2021 it's a fact that he was ahead of Gray on the depth chart and I have no doubt if he is in the roster he will likely starting in the LG vacated by Desjarlais.

Also don't agree on the vaxx part.

Eli would be an excellent re-sign. The man has a nasty side, and can play. Vax or no vax, it wouldn't matter by the time we get to June.
