Quote from: the paw on January 31, 2022, 07:12:59 PMWhat he probably does is anoint him the presumptive starter going into camp to build his confidence. If he actually keeps the top job through preseason and the first game or two, then you come back to him with an extension. The signing bonus on the extension could get him over $150k for this year, and you can probably lock him down for $250k for 2023. After that, you have to pay him market value or he has busted out by then.
Quote from: Pete on February 01, 2022, 07:56:18 PMLawler signing with BC may not be as done a deal as it looks. The 250k sounds like a lot but its a multiyear contract thats front loaded. I don't think he will be nearly as effective in BC as he was here with the chemistry he had with Collaros where he was the number one go to reciever. His numbers might have a negative effect on any future nfl inquiries..In BC he wil have to shre the ball with whitehead/burnham/ryhmes and with as stated above an inferior oline. (as an aside why is it when the Bombers sign someone the salary is well known while with other team its an exception?)

Quote from: Nic16 on February 02, 2022, 02:45:29 AMMore interested in re-signing Bailey and Adams than overpaying for Ellingson.I?d rather add a receiver who doesn?t mind getting his nose dirty in the run game.
Quote from: theaardvark on February 02, 2022, 03:17:48 PMWhy not resign Adams, Bailey and Ellingson? I think that is what people are proposing, replacing Lawler with Ellingson IF Lawler decides on BC
Quote from: TBURGESS on February 02, 2022, 03:12:47 PMRe: Cost of living. Lets say that it costs an additional $1000 a month in rent, which is high. Players are in town for 6 months so that's $6000 more that BC and Toronto have to pay players to make things even. Everything else is pretty much the same. (I moved to Vancouver from Winnipeg so I know what I'm talking about)
Quote from: Jesse on February 02, 2022, 03:52:15 PMI really think we?re out on signing an expensive FA in the receiving core.Bring back Adams, hope for McKnight?s continued development, and bring in a ton of bodies for TC like we did with DBs last year.
Quote from: theaardvark on February 02, 2022, 04:10:01 PMIt all depends on how the WR price range develops... with Lucky and Lawler setting the high water mark, will that create higher prices for all FA's, or does it eat up a bunch of the $$$ allocated to WR's in total? How many "top" WR's will reach FA, and how many "seasoned vets" will take a value contract to keep playing. There have to be a lot of guys at the "If I don't get X$, I'm hanging them up", but how many vets are at the point "If I can get a contract, with some incentives, I want to play another year"? And if there are guys like that out there, where do THEY want to land? In a place with a great Oline, a MOP QB and a fantastic culture?
