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.

I don't know that Grant will get any offers as full time receiver. He hasn't had much opportunity to do that even in Winnipeg. Essentially a raw talent in that area. So other teams might want to give him more of a chance beyond returner duties.

While that's true I don't think it creates an increase above the Bombers being competitive in re-signing him.

Adams, Taylor, Jones could be casualties to the SMS but that might ride more on whether Harris returns. If he doesn't that frees up some cash.

Ellingson would be a great target if they cant keep lawler. I bet he would have a career resurgence here. Kind of like how our Qb did...And he might come with a lower price tag.

Have any teams made offers to our potential free agents besides the Lawler offer from the Lions?

Have the Bombers made any offers to players from other teams?

Not much info right now.

I have a legit question:  What is going on in WPG  with the @Wpg_BlueBombers
? How can they re-sign all these players? Why would a player take way less to stay in WPG? We are talking about CFL money not NFL money! Something is up IMO. Follow the Lawler situation closely. #CFL

Lions pay $200K for Whitehead and offer Lawler $250K and someone is wondering what's going on in Wpg?

Ya and they have a rookie unproven Qb with no backup throwing them the ball!!! The folks on the west coast are a tad slow....

I say Lawler is using the bc offer to get the best deal he can here. Why anyone would want to play for the loser Lions is beyond me

It goes without saying, but I?ll say it anyway?Walters is very good at his job! And O?Shea makes it much easier for him.

I remember a few yrs back when Walters & O?Shea were extended, certain ?know it all? members on the Rider forum were so happy & sure that the BB were going in the wrong direction.

I got 3 words for them now?Back to Back!

But oh geez wait a second, they wouldn?t know what that is.  ;D

Most teams are now trying to duplicate what we have been doing since MOS and Mr. Walters got here.

Believe this to be the one of the Sportscage individuals (Ballsy) out of Regina 620 CKRM.   The voice of the Riders, Derek Taylor hosts all good things about the Riders... No need to say any more!!!!

Yup, I had a feeling that would be from someone with a green bedroom.....

He's just crusty because it's in his greenie DNA to hate all things Bombers, especially their recent success.

Gotta say...Walter is killing it...and the hard work and patience building what this Team is all about now is paying off big time....guys will stick around for less, and be happy about it...I doubt we have less than 3/4's of the squad back....and that is huge!

Still one third of starters unsigned, along with key back ups and specialists like a kicker, replacement for Kongbo or our two RBs.

Lots of work to do yet, but considering where we started from, excellent progress.
