Couture and Woli. back are big. That's two proven high caliber CDN starters. IF true we managed to keep almost our entire O-line intact and almost our entire D-line intact. (I also believe Kongbo will be back in 2022)

Losing Lawler would suck.... the guy can ball....but we can't afford everyone and I would much rather try and replace a star American receiver then a high caliber CDN starter or American DE or OT.

Blue Bombers agree to terms with receiver Drew Wolitarsky

WINNIPEG, MB., January 31, 2022 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension with Canadian receiver Drew Wolitarsky, who was scheduled to become a free agent next week.

Wolitarsky (602, 225; University of Minnesota; born: March 22, 1995, in Santa Clarita, CA) returns to the Blue Bombers for a fifth season in 2022.

He dressed and started all 14 regular-season games in 2021, plus the Western Final and the 108th Grey Cup victory and finished with 32 receptions for 386 yards and one touchdown. He added six more catches in the two playoff games, including a Grey Cup performance in which he pulled in four passes for 48 yards ? all of them in the club?s fourth-quarter rally.

Wolitarsky was chosen by the club in a 2017 Canadian Football League Supplemental Draft, with the club forfeiting a third-round selection in the 2018 CFL Draft to select him.

He made his CFL debut on October 6th, 2017, and has suited up for 54 games over his first four seasons, with 111 career receptions for 1,412 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Wolitarsky finished his days at the University of Minnesota tied for eighth all-time in receptions with 130 and was named an All-Big Ten Third-Team All-Star Academic All-Big Ten as a senior. He was also named an Academic All-Big Ten in 2014, his sophomore season.

Huh??? Bad news if true.

I expect he'll resign with #Bombers. But important to note that Alexander had ACL surgery following the Grey Cup and is expected to miss half the season in 2022 while rehabbing. @CFLonTSN #CFLFA

If true Alexander will be ready to return by late June or early July, speaking experience from having both my ACL's replaced.

Well that's not good especially that we also lost Alford from our secondary. This could mean we choose to go with Hallett at safety. That would also help with the ratio after losing Kongbo on defence.

It also means that SMS money can be shifted to retaining the other DB's that are currently potential free agents.

Most likely a Hallett but could also shuffle Darby or Jones to Safety if they can solve the ratio puzzle elsewhere.

Signing Couture is a huge deal for us to maintain the strength of the o line, frankly I'm surprised BC didn't make a serious run/offer for him. I hope we still try to reaquire Speller  for depth.
Update BC did make an offer for 200 k according to Farnan Lalji, he took 180 to play here.
