I would love to get Speller back specially if we dont get Eli back. Not sure of if Speller is vaxxed though he was in Argos suspended list last year.

Which players are we hoping we can bring in to replace a few of our holes?  Speller would be great. Who else is realistic?  No leaks about us making offers to players from other teams yet.

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

Solving the ratio elsewhere could be difficult but not yet impossible in free agency. Either a DT or DE would be preferable as it also fits a need for rotation on the DL.

I'd like both Darby and Jones back but we're waiting to see if that happens shortly. Darby in particular could play there but then it creates a change at SAM and he had a very good season there.

I'm not totally convinced that Maston or Johnson will be back and wasn't even expecting offers to put out to them. Part of that was due to injuries but also wanting Darby back.

Happy we re-signed Couture. Another big piece of the puzzle on the OL and sustaining our ratio and OL depth at the same time. That said I wouldn't mind Eli back as depth if they can resolve the vax situation.

To get Cody Speller back with the o-line group would be great and a good option. Besides him, would like to see Liam Dobson here at the start of training camp... I'm sure the Bombers will draft an o-line prospect(s) at pick 9 or 18...

Yah, I see Walters traded his playing rights just before 2021 F.A. began, maybe as part of the Collaros deal?

The injury to BA37 is not good. However the Hallett brother my be able to take position on until he gets back. We also have Patrice Rene coming in to TC at 6-2, 205 this kid mite also fit in a Safety.

Rene has good press clipping but it's been said he might try to catch on with an NFL deal. In any case it's a lot to ask for a rookie to step in immediately at safety if he comes to TC.

So my best guess as of today is Nick Hallett if Alexander is not available due to injury.

I would like to see these guys re-signed prior to FA: Harris, Oliveira, Alexander, Darby, Rose, Bailey and Hansen
then I'm OK whoever signs somewhere.

Yup sucks to hear Alexander. That explains him not resigning yet. If he got hurt celebrating that is disgustingly sad if so.

Love to retain 2 of Darby Rose and Jones!

I wouldn't like to lose Grant or Richardson either. Castillo for the right money. Mike Jones and Taylor played very well in the secondary. What about Adams? You're not giving these guys credit for their contribution.

They are on my list. More so than Hansen frankly although he gets the low Global salary and we need rotation at DE and finding ANY decent Global is not easy.

I like Grant but he might look somewhere where he can be a regular in O just like Lucky. Stove might be looking for a big bump. Castillo said his giving NFL one last try. Adams, Taylor, Jones, Augustine, I like them all and I like them all back. The reality is we cant re-sign them all if everyone is looking for a raise. The 6 (now 5) I mentioned is my own wish list.
