Re: Lions sign new QB

The Lions may need to bolster their QB roster for minicamp. Jennings and Lulay are still recovering from injuries. I don't know if Jennings will be throwing at all. That just leaves Ross, Gale and Birdsong. In the past the Lions have brought six QBs to minicamp and at least five to main camp.

Re: Lions sign new QB

I guess the problem with all the positive testimonials is that they didn't amount to anything so far as catching on with a team so how much value can you really place in them? The top ten video was just for Texas Tech 2016 as far as I could tell. And to have your QB get the number 1 spot for comple...

Re: Lions sign new QB

Not meaning to be negative here, but his draft scout ratings don't look exceptional. Below is the summary. He's not projected to be drafted. As for mobility, his speed (4.97 40) would seem to put limitations on that; he appears to be big and slow. Just for comparison, Travis Lulay turned in a 4.74 ...

Re: Shaq Johnson signs new contract

Johnson's emergence was a pleasant surprise last year. Despite missing the start of training camp with an injury, he quickly showed his speed and ability to stretch the field when he came back. By the second week of camp, he was atop the depth chart at field wideout, ahead of Stephen Adekolu and Bre...

Re: Jennings contract re-structured

In training camp Wally will expect him to show progress over last year. While he won't have playing time to compare they will be able to tell a lot by the way he conducts himself in meetings, shows better grasp of the offense, fundamentals and how he performs in drills and practice. If he does show...

Re: Lions ownership discussion thread

I have great respect for David Braley but it’s looking more and more likely that the Lions will eventually end up as part of an estate sale. I hope he’s made clear provisions for that in his will.

Re: Jennings contract re-structured

Jarious worked with Adams in Saskatchewan last year so he should know his abilities.

Re: Jennings contract re-structured

I would much rather go into the season with Adams than Mitchell Gale as a backup to Jennings. Adams could stay on the roster as the No. 3 QB if and when Lulay returns, and would be a potential heir to Jennings down the road. Interesting speculation, fellows. However, young 25-year-old Alex Ross, wh...

Re: Jennings contract re-structured

There is some speculation over at Riderfans that the Lions might have some interest in Vernon Adams. Personally, I think this could be a good fit. I don't think we can count on Lulay being ready to start the year, and we don't have anyone else on the roster who could step in for Jennings if needed....

He has been a quick study, picking up various offensive systems. :thup: Kevin Glenn, arguably the greatest CFL journeyman QB of all time. Nine teams, no Grey Cups. What are t...

Re: Jennings contract re-structured

How does an "incentive loaded" contract affect your salary cap if the player hits all the targets? So the Lions save cap space now, spend it on other positions and Jennings has a great year. Then he is due all that bonus money and Lions wind up going over their cap. Right? Here is my guess for how ...

Re: Lions trade for RB Brandon Rutley

I am just as confused as you about Shaq Murray-Lawrence. Wally brought him in mid-way through the season and he had that one exceptional game at RB. Wally singled him out to the team as an example of perseverance and dedication etc. He never played again. Not only that, he got in a car accident in ...

Re: Alouettes sign QB Josh Freeman

Matthew Cauz wrote an interesting column last week for cfl.ca on the eerily similar backgrounds of the most successful CFL quarterbacks. He wrote it in the context of the Johnny Manziel hype, but his point extends to Freeman. Ricky Ray was the only example cited of an American QB who had success in ...

Lions trade for RB Brandon Rutley

The Lions have acquired international running back Brandon Rutley from the Montreal Alouettes in exchange for an unnamed player on B.C.’s negotiation list. This could be a good depth signing. The Lions used Chris Rainey in a rotation with Jeremiah Johnson last year but Rainey is a different type of ...
