Re: Pending Lions free agents

Wow. Very impressed once again with Ed H. Breath of fresh air in an organization grown very stale. New age thinking. Godin (6’2”, 250) will compete for a spot in his second training camp after returning to Laval for his final year of eligibility in 2017. The talented defensive lineman was the Lions’...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

As for who is left, I am double-checking DBs rather intently. If Yell is truly not coming back, then Owusu-Ansah is a potential candidate for the boundary corner. Jerrell Gavins, despite his diminutive stature, is pretty versatile but ended his year with an ACL injury. If Hervey is looking at avail...

Few Lions free agents still have not signed - Roh, Fabien, Moore and Yell. Yell is the most surprising.

Westerman just signed with the Als to join his brother.
Did Kirby fall off the map?

Figueroa only gets one year of reverse engineering with Dan D.

Re: Pending Lions free agents

WCJ - i wouldn't be giving up on Vandervoort as a potential very good receiver; be a different story if he had played some as a rookie and dropped a bunch of passes; but he didn't except for producing one nice 25 yard reception. Smart teams often, IMO, make thorough & deep use of their roster and s...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

I like it. Great size. Pretty good passport. A well-known asset. Not spectacular, but I think better than Vandervoort. Watson has always been known as a tough blocking receiver as well; maybe signed mostly for vet depth to replace Iannuzzi (Watson is way bigger) - playing the same part-time positio...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Done deal now. They signed Watson today. He likely will be the Canadian to start in the receiving corps, while the guy they drafted last year will have to wait another year and be a backup. What is that now 4 or 5 ex Eskimos signed in free agency. I like it. Great size. Pretty good passport. A well...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

The BC Lions Football Club today announced that international free agent defensive tackle Euclid Cummings has signed a 2018 contract with the team. Spending the 2017 season with the Edmonton Eskimos recording 21 defensive stops and eight sacks, Cummings enters his fifth CFL season in 2018. The Geor...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Their provincial rival, Edmonton, added a star pass-rusher in Alex Bazzie. A matter of opinion. He has slipperiness as a pass rusher. Wears down due to minimal size. https://www.cfl.ca/2018/02/13/open-market-5-highlights-day-1-free-agency/ Ed Hervey continued his focus on the trenches for the Lions...

Steps taken to upgrade the OL and DL. Willis and Figueroa. Is that it for those units in acquiring veteran FAs from around the league?
Don't forget Knapton.
Absolutely right. Maybe one more NAT OL?

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Steps taken to upgrade the OL and DL. Willis and Figueroa. Is that it for those units in acquiring veteran FAs from around the league? And then the FA camps down south. And the CFL draft. This fan cannot get too excited yet. We need to see how the offence looks under Jarious. And of course, this fan...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Canadian defensive back Cauchy Muamba has signed a one-year contract with the Lions, per sources. I liked Cauchy. Athletic. Could go up high to defend or steal a pass. He was not great of course. But he could cover ground and get over to cover deep. I expect he has learned and improved in his trave...

Re: Football Operations: GM Ed Hervey, HC Wally Buono and the Coaching Staff

https://www.bclions.com/2018/02/11/jarious-im-feeling-at-home-im-going-to-soak-in-all-the-knowledge/ Excellent interview with Jarious Jackson. I have so much respect and admiration for this man. Says a lot of nice things about Wally. Talks about Jonathon Jennings and Travis Lulay of course. Very hap...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Kirby Fabien. First round pick. Has some talent. Another disappointing NAT OL, who did not develop as hoped. The two big personnel concerns for this team remain the OL and the DL. Hopes ride on Hervey. Turnaround can be quick in the CFL. Disappointing? Maybe, maybe not when one considers the entire...
