Do they report in the media any offers made to players from other teams? Perhaps not the amounts offered publicly but a teams interest in certain players.

I can imagine we may have some interests in a couple of receivers or DL if they reach free agency.

All of this depends on whether we can or choose to re-sign our own potential free agents.

Lots of players being signed today across the CFL. About 150 potential free agents left.

Money is being spent. Those that wait may be in for a rude surprise over the next week.

Some leak, others don't.

Haven't seen anything yet come through.

Pegged it... more than you could have known!

So what is the news, if any, of teams "tampering" with our guys??

Does anyone know the status of Hansen?  Is he still locked in?

Hansen is under contract, one that pays him well this year, the reason he came back last year...

Hamilton rumoured to be after Sayles,

Sask wants Couture.

What? No more Dan Clark stories before every Rider snap?

Don't like losing Sayles. He has been very good for us. What's the Bombers backup plan if we lose him?

I wonder what Walters offered Sayles, or if they made him an offer at all?  Ricky Walker is still on the roster but hasn't looked good enough to be Sayles replacement, maybe Walters has a surprise in store.

Good question but it's still possible we get him back. Plan B is anybodies guess. I count 22 DL still on the potential free agent list. Whether we've made offers to any IDK. If we lose Sayles in the next week we'll be active looking at another player I suppose.

Hamilton may have set the bar for Sayles but we don't know how much more that is than the Bombers thoughts.

If we let Sayles go then either Keion Adams needs to come back or we need an actual #3 DE. Sayles took a good bit of snaps at end when Jeffcoat was out, especially after we dropped Mack and traded Wilcots.

I think Ricky Walker has looked fine in light rotation.  His numbers are okay.  I think Sayles started off the same way behind Stove.

They may also want to increase Lawsons reps, and we have that Canadian draft pick who is an absolute load.

I don't remember Walters ever retaining a DT. When it's time for them to receive a raise, they move on.

Remember Tyson Pencer?  6'-7" 300 lbs, never amounted to anything.  Rupert Butcher 6'-5" 320 lbs.? Looked good in one TC, but didn't stick. Hard to predict what these big guys can do until they're thrown into the fire, some big men are just not athletic enough to compete against other big men.

Curious if anyone knows the status of Steve Richardson. Is he a free agent? Should the Bombers go after him if they lose Sayles?
