Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Im getting my second shot in a weeks time in my assisted living home. So we are getting close to the beginning of the end. That's great to hear! The Leos have trimmed a significant amount from what would have been their 2020 payroll. After going back over the last several weeks of social media post...

Re: 3DownNation says 2021 Season May Not Happen

Hope the owners realize wiping out the entire 2021 season simply can't happen. Even if it's a 9-game season starting in September so be it. The optics would look horrible especially given the millions upon millions being lost by the MLS with a TV deal that is not as lucrative to the league as a 9-te...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Boyko might have been the most overhyped player on this board's history — going back to why did we draft a player with NFL aspirations to the annual training camp updates on him being released only spending years on practice rosters. Foucault had a similar route to the CFL albeit a shorter time fram...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Disappointed to lose Johnson and like most of us concern about how effective their d-line is going be. We just witnessed what a good pass rush can do in Tampa's run to the Super Bowl, regardless of how dynamic the opponent's offence is. Maybe it would take the great Lowell Ullrich back on the Lions ...

Re: Lions in the local media (REVIVED thread 6-10-20)

Pulling TSN 1040 off the air like Bell did yesterday is bloody awful. I am so pissed off at Bell for what they are doing to the Lions and the other sports teams in this market. The only saving grace for their actions is that they did not replace 1040 with the Toronto sports feed. I won't be using B...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

The Micah Johnson negotiations or lack there of is a strange one given it took acquiring Shawn Lemon 2 straight seasons to bolster an ineffective pass rush. Now he is with a divisional rival and Johnson is rumoured to be returning to the Riders. It just didn’t seem wise to trim their cap on the defe...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

So 48 hours to go until free agency kicks in and where are we compared to March of a year ago or so? Not sure exactly how secondary will line up but Sayles replaces Grimes from at least a salary cap respective. I see two other potential defensive starters not re-signed in Johnson and Brown. Are both...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Part of that salary is the fact that he is a big, strong target on an upward trajectory and is Canadian to boot, giving us options elsewhere. Slightly higher than I would have expected, but not by much (maybe 10 grand). DH :cool: $160,000 is about right David. Farhan had mentioned on Rod Pederson's...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Re Burnham, I wonder if Campbell prefers Ellingson and so is not too concerned about letting Burnham walk. Ellingson was one of the most consistent receivers in the league during their time together. People like to surround themselves with people they know and trust. That's a great point maxlion an...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

I 'm a little perplexed to see what the hold up is on a new deal for Burnham unless it has to do with length of contract or signing bonus. He made $205,000 last year and the Lions just gave Durant $175,000 on his re-structured deal. So somewhere in between seems like the landing spot with $190,000 g...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Great and somewhat surprising news on Ladler. However, Farhan tweeting Lions likely will not be re-signing Micah Johnson and he was to anchor the new look d-line.

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Farhan Lalji discussed free agency and contract renegotiations with Derek Taylor on Sports Cage Wednesday. Of B.C. interest, he mentioned that Lemar Durant’s new $175,000 contract and Derel Walker’s $180,000 deal in Edmonton help set the market for Bryan Burnham. He also said the Lions are in “tens...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

The Lions have confirmed the signing of former Winnipeg DB Marcus Sayles to a three-year contract. Sayles played boundary HB for the Bombers in 2019 and was a CFL West Division all-star. He spent most of the 2020 season on the Minnesota Vikings practice squad so he was not on the list of pending CF...

Re: Mike Reilly, Lemar Durant restructure contracts

Waiting somewhat anxiously on Burnham re-signing and Sukh Chungh agreeing to restructure his $250,000 per season deal. That has to be coming right?
