Depending on the spend, probably one of the best signings this year.  Chris Jones has handed us a top WR and a backup QB.  I'm liking his style... for us.  

Sounds like a perfect fit, really...

I can't see needing a "more experienced" QB... he has dressed for 49 games in the CFL... 27 carries last year, and 26 passes in 8 games... I think he is the perfect amount of experience and youth... won't please either camp (the "More experience" or the "more potential" sides) which means its perfect  Wink


"Prukop began his collegiate career at Montana State, transferring to Oregon after graduating in 2016 to pursue his Masters in non-profit management."   Non Profit Management?  Really?  I guess that's a lockerroom fit...



If Strevy's asks will fit Bombers cap don't you think the Bombers will not bring him in and cut either Brown or Prukop on the process?
I think the Bombers will do it in a heartbeat.

How about if Arbuckle becomes available? Don't you think the Bombers will not inquire on his services?

Elks only have Cornelius and Arbuckle with CFL experience, why do you think Arbuckle would come available?  Jones might be crazy, but he's not stupid.

Better than nothing I guess.

I'm still crossing my fingers for the return of Dom Davis.

"ask fits the Bombers cap" is the key.. Prukop has the right balance of experience and inexperience that puts his ask in the Bombers cap.  Strevey, Arbuckle are going to have much larger asks...

McAdoo love athletic QBs and I dont think Arbuckle fits on his preference. Cornelius is. Plus Jones will be Jones. He brought in J.T. Barrett and he will give him all the chance in the world to be on the game roster.

If I have to make a guess, they will start the season with Cornelius as #1 and Barrett as their #2.

EDIT:
This is a quote from the 3down Insider Talk.
Quote
Between J.T. Barrett, Khalil Tate, and Kai Locksley, it?s pretty clear that Edmonton is looking for their own version of Chris Streveler ? an athletic quarterback who can do a lot more than just throw the ball. With only two quarterback spots on the roster, they could dress one of those guys as a receiver and have him serve as the No. 3 quarterback. (Head coach and general manager Chris) Jones has had guys like that before with Jordan Lynch (in Edmonton) and David Watford (in Saskatchewan). I?m not saying those guys are Streveler, but they?re multi-faceted like him.

and as always once a player is signed by the Bombers he instantly become a "stud" player in your eyes.

hopefully we still bring in a few qbs to compete. Prukop isnt an upgrade to Mcquire and Mcquire wasn't good enough

Not sure where you get that from... never once praised him or his play, only commented on his experience and his implied price tag fitting into the equation for the Bombers. 

In his limited reps, he hasn't stunk the place out, Huff liked him enough to give him a shot, Walters (and by association, MOS and Buck) obviously think he has enough going for him to bring him in.

For guys that wanted more experience than Dru Brown, here's 4 years of CFL, 49 games dressed.  Sure, its not Harris, but more than Brown.  And certainly not Harris' price tag.

He's 28, so his best years are ahead of him.  He's coming to a team with some pretty awesome O assets, the best Oline in the league, good RB's and some premium targets.  What more could a QB want?  Win/win, really...

Whether he is "the next Streveler" or on his last CFL backup deal, time will tell.

Harris signed for $125K according to the reporting. Not sure what Prukop got but I doubt it was ELC. Perhaps $80K? It's not like he's several hundred thousand dollars less.

Harris for $125k is a steal, I wish we could have signed him

Jones wants JT Barrett to be the QB coming out of camp... he's wanted him since his first go round with the EE
