5 days to get a few more starters signed. I am surprised we haven't signed a RB yet. Also surprised that we haven't inked the Germany Wrecking Ball (Hansen) yet.

Have a feeling we're nearly capped out.  I'd bet on maybe one more DB (Mike Jones?) and Olivera.  Maybe one of Grant or Adams at receiver as well, but I'm assuming Stove, Alexander (inj), Taylor/Darby/Johnson, McGuire & Eli are all replaced on the roster by rookies.  Potentially also Harris returns at a heavy discount as well as a rotational RB, but we can't possibly have much cash left to spend on anyone.  I'd be pleasantly surprised to be wrong though.

I would think Walters haven't talked (about $) to Harris and Oliveira yet. It's safe to assume that those two will not go anywhere.
Harris, just like the others would want to chase another Grey Cup before going out while Oliveira knows he's the heir apparent.
Would suck to see Augustine go but there's Borsa as the 3rd back.

One would think there's $ reserved for them and it's just a matter what $ are to be agreed. Maybe that will happen after Walters are done talking with the DBs and the WRs.

Why would you assume that? We hear posters thinking we're tapped out early way before TC. SMS counting aside from early payments doesn't start until rosters are declared.

There are still 15 players from 2021 not re-signed yet. We lost 3 to the NFL. I doubt we're going to have 18 rookies on the 2022 roster.

Andrew Harris money has been invested in other players and in my opinion is the right move by Walters.

Re-signing frenzy has picked up across the CFL. I suppose players and teams know which other team has made offers to their players. That should move decisions one way or the other for players after assessing financial interest elsewhere?

Our list is getting smaller considering a few I don't expect back for one reason or another. My expectation is down to 8 players I think we can re-sign. We'll see what today brings unless the Augustine is the only announcement. Most days are only one announcement but Feb 8th is approaching.

You could be correct and he may have chosen to retire after consecutive Grey Cup wins. I suppose that would be the time to do so but IMO he's still capable at playing at a high level.

Is it possible for Harris to be a player/coach? I mean he can let the other 3 RBs (Augustine, Oliveira & Borsa) run the rock early and probably start playing LDC onwards.
Also by doing that he can sign a smaller $ as player but get $ as a coach. I dont know how that works on the cap though. Just throwing it out there.  Grin

In an official capacity, much like the NBA, the current CBA between the NFL and the NFL Players Association prohibits official player-coaches due to teams using it to circumvent the salary cap.

Have too assume the CFL has similar rules. Makes sense with the front office salary cap as well.

Cant see anyway the CFL allow 33 to play/coach, and keep the ratio. Sets up for huge nightmares down the road.

I could still see him taking a team friendly deal in a rotational/mentor role. I just can't see him being done yet.

That's what we're hoping for but until we see something more conclusive it's a big question. IIRC in 2019 he was at $180K. In 2021 he had a reduced pro-rated salary which might have been $120K??

Even at that, it's $60K above an ELC which means $60K that isn't used elsewhere potentially.

Tick tick tick. Who re-signs 1st, Oliveria or A. Harris?

Did Oliveria get offers from other teams ( Ottawa )?

It doesn't make a lot of sense that Brady would be the one moving on when his football career is laid out in front of him so perfectly, all he has to do is keep following the yellow brick road.

I assume Oliveria received offers from 2 - 3 clubs.    No evidence, just speculation based on CFL availability.

Pretty sure his performance in AH33's absence, and the reason you quoted, are why he would be the most logical one to garner lucrative offers.  JA27 has had opportunities to show his stuff that BO20 hasn't.  BO20 is 4 years younger, and has a career in front of him.  If he chose to stay here, of course he's the next AH33 for years to come.  And that still might happen.  But other teams looking for a ratio breaking RB with his career in front of him will see his value...
