Re: 2021 CFL free agency

The most likely ratio scenarios at this point are 3 national OL, 2-3 REC/FB and 1-2 LB. The Lions are loaded with national LBs who can start, including 2020 No. 1 draft pick Jordan Williams. At receiver, Shaq Johnson remains unsigned and Jevon Cottoy has until the end of the month to opt back into ...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

As I said before - ill wager no way that Campbell starts 3 NI receivers even if Johnson and Cottoy return; and the few teams that play an H-back the odd time (a few downs a game), may list the guy as a "starter" (does that mean the guy has to be on the field for the first series on offenc...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Another thing I noticed in CFL transactions is that there are DELETE then ADD transactions yesterday for Hunter Steward, TJ Lee, Ryker Mathews and Peter Godber which usually indicates they have renegotiated their contracts. I'm curious if they are simply adjusting 2021 or if any involved adding more...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Ottawa had used an H-back some over the past few seasons (Beaulieu was a real good one IMO); so, when the H-back goes in, he replaces one of the starting NI receivers? Not really so in Ottawa where Sinopoli was a starting fixture at slot and would not come out for the H-back. Still going to be most...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Another day, another extension. Joel Figueroa will be back to patrol Reilly's blindside.

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

For the 7 NIs only need apply? = 3 interior O-linemen + 2 receivers (Durant & Johnson), and then they would need 2 on D = Will & MLB, or one LB and a safety ? Doesn't seem like a NI would get a shot to start on the D-Line ? Or could they go 3 NI starting receivers again for 6 on O (i doubt ...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Indeed, just what I was thinking, B.C.FAN! Pretty incredible! All we need do is get the likes of Branden Dozier (almost certainly not affordable) back at safety and we're really smiling so far as the secondary goes. I suspect a National needs to fill that slot. Guzylak-Messam comes to mind, but he ...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Kenny Ladler returns. Looks like we'll have a rock solid secondary with excellent options at SAM.

Re: Braley Wants to Sell Lions

Unless the estate is willing to dump the team at a fire sale price a fraction of $10M I doubt there will be anything new to report until the CFL has the green light to start playing with fans in the stands. Realistically why would anybody want to buy the Lions or any other CFL team for that matter ...

Re: Braley Wants to Sell Lions

Anything new given the developments? Curious if a $10 million offer would be considered.

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

NFL television rights are being discussed and up for renewal in 2022. Rights to Monday night alone expected to increase from the current $2 billion. 4 different packages all over $1 billion. TSN has a very inexpensive source of programing with the CFL. 180 games deserves far more than $50 million C...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

It would seem that in all likelihood Bighill and family live year around in Winnipeg and spent the last year growing his business as a financial adviser. He might now be similar to Marco Iannuzzi in his last few years; full time financial adviser moonlighting as a football player. https://www.invest...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

I recall Norman being versatile, so that is a possibility. If Fig isn't re-signed, I wonder if Matthews could play at LT? Then there is David Knevel whom I think is talented and seasoned enough to start. However, with his frame, I would rather see him at RT than at guard. Whatever the case, I do ho...
