If he got a good signing bonus he may ride it out longer to see if any injuries open up
spots on other teams. Seems like bengals have a porous line still!

Bombers should kick the tires at least, but offensive line not in major need right now. Defence needs major help unless some of the injured players can return soon.

May not be immediate need but is definitely one for the next few years. Likely why we are seeing import olinemen being added to practice roster.

Even if he did decide to come back for the stretch drive he may try the nfl next season again. If he wants to sign longer term, then yes for future depth makes sense.

Sask is a sad mess right now. Think he has better options than that in the cfl. Maybe they offer him crazy money in desperation, but could be house cleaning coming there by end of year if not earlier.

Must. Get. Him. Back.  Who cares if he goes again next year, he'd make an immediate impact for our final stretch.

It's the biggest and most important move we could make this season.

There's no other player who can come in and immediately make the positive impact that Drew can.

Do the Bombers have enough SMS left to make him a massive offer?

It will be prorated this year, so it should not be an issue.
I would think there's should be enough room in the SMS for next year.

Yes. He'd still have an NFL option for 2023 if he chooses to take that route again. We should be speaking with his agent to see what his thoughts are at the moment. Our OL has some aging veterans and I don't know if any will consider retirement after we win Grey Cup 2022. Smiley

I agree that money will be available for next year as Bryant and Hardrick will retire, maybe even Neufeld?

I would even add Couture on that list. Not retiring but probably moving on.
BC has a shiny young QB and the Lions team are up and coming. The thought of winning a GC with your hometown team will be a great pull.

If Rourke is in BC next year, he wouldn't be playing for $85K. BC will have to make some cap decisions.

I could see Bryant (36 years old) and possibly Neufeld (33 years old) but Hardrick still has more in him for sure!

If Desjarlais does sign here, he would start immediately. Which will then have us all argueing, who is out?
My line would look like this:

Bryant - Desjarlais - Couture - Neufeld - Hardrick (just like last year)
with Dobson and Grey as our 6th and 7th OL. We would need to keep 7 OL for the rest of the year. No question at that point.
