Blue Bombers agree to terms with CFL All-Star receiver Dalton Schoen

WINNIPEG, MB., February 6, 2024 – The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has agreed to terms on a on-year deal with all-star receiver Dalton Schoen.

Schoen was scheduled to become a free agent on February 13th.

Schoen (6-1, 210; Kansas State; born: October 13, 1996, in Overland Park, KS) returns to the Blue Bombers for a third season in 2024. In 34 games over 2022-23, Schoen racked up 141 receptions for 2,663 yards and 26 touchdowns while being named a West Division and CFL All-Star in each season.

Last year, Schoen had 71 receptions for 1,222 yards and 10 touchdowns, finishing third in the league in yardage, first in receiving touchdowns and third in second-down conversion catches with 30.

His rookie year of 2022 was one of the most prolific in CFL history as he led the league with 1,441 receiving yards on 70 receptions while tying for the league lead in touchdowns with 16. Those numbers helped him earn him the CFL's Most Outstanding Rookie honours.

Schoen's 1,441 yards in 2022 was the seventh-highest total in club history (Milt Stegall holds the club record of 1,896, set in 2002) and set a team record for touchdowns by a first-year Blue Bomber.

Schoen came to the Blue Bombers after first signing in the NFL as an undrafted free agent by the Los Angeles Chargers in 2020 and following looks from Kansas City and Washington.

Schoen was a walk-on at Kansas State, climbing up the depth chart to eventually start as a sophomore and become a key target over his final three years. He finished his college career ranked seventh in school history in yards per reception (17.05) and 15th in career receiving yards (1,569). He finished with 92 receptions for 1,569 yards and nine touchdowns over 34 games from 2017-2019.

He was a 2019 Honorable Mention All-Big 12 and a member of the First Team Academic All-Big 12 from 2017-19.

I wonder how much of a discount Collaros, Lawler and Bryant took to get these young weapons re-signed?
Great news either way. I think we have some great, young and cheap canadians and imports on the roster. Regardless we are maxing out that salary cap!

Quite unbelievable, I would estimate Schoen left $30-$50k sitting on the table.

Team player?
 Maybe there's going to be some extreme team healthy competition for who deserves that top dog/top WR money for 2025. Lawler and Schoen are only signed for 2024. Hypothetically if the Bombers have another highly succesful season they may find a way to keep both around. Demski will be in a fight in 2025 to prove he's stil the top Canadian WR and im guessing will be going for 1 more 2 year deal after 2025. If Demski puts up huge numbers in 2025....look out for big changes?
Keep in mind the CFL salary cap goes up another 100k in 2025 and another 100 k in 2026.

Go Bombers!

our offence so far is intact other than signing Bailey who took a a pay cut to stay last season.   Not sure it will happen again though....and replacing Hardrick even if his play was declining somewhat is still a tall order.

Yes....it all starts with the O-line....it was inevitable that something had to give if we ended up signing either Brady or Dalton....or both.   Brady pretty much doubled his salary and Dalton is up 160K from his ELC contract.   Factor those numbers and the math is pretty simple and I'm wondering if Brady's production will be down from last season behind a very good run offensive line and scheme?

It most likely will be.  I also fear for Collaros as well.  He might be getting more smacked around this year then previous years
