Re: Throwback Thursday

There is some really cool video footage of Lions training camp in Kelowna in 1960. The source says 1959 but I don't think they wore the winged football helmet design (aka "Wolverines" design) until the 1960 season. It looks to me like Dave Skrein doing the instructing. I don't see Willie ...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Two more down. Nat RB Jamel Lyles and Amer LB Dyshawn Davis https://www.bclions.com/2021/01/15/lions-bring-back-rb-jamel-lyles-lb-dyshawn-davis/ The Lions still have a lot of work to do to solidify their linebacking corps. Davis is a veteran special teamer and rotational linebacker. Whether he gets...

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 “tense...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

I wonder if the Lions are considering moving Norman to tackle. He has the size and smarts to play tackle and I know Farhan Lalji was high on his talent. The Lions have former Hamilton tackle Ryker Mathews under contract for 2021 but Veteran LT Joel Figueroa is a pending free agent. Justin Renfrow, w...

Cioffi started all 18 games at the SAM position in Ottawa in 2019, registering 61 defensive tackles, 2 sacks, 2 interceptions and a forced fumble. The Lions have a stacked secondary, with 5 veteran American starters signed for 2021at DB and SAM, plus promising second-year player Victor Gamboa and a ...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

The Lions have re-signed defensive end J.R. Tavai, who played for Campbell in Ottawa in 2019 and tied for the Redblacks team lead with 7 sacks, so that's one more potential free agent off the list.

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

In the first 11 days of 2021 the Lions and Argos have been the least active teams in signing players to 2021 contracts, according to the CFL transaction wire. Only 6 signings of new or returning players have been announced by the Lions (including 2 rookie signings announced today) and 4 by the Argos...

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 CFL...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Derel Walker's new contract in Edmonton sets a benchmark for free-agent receivers in 2021. According to John Hodge of 3downnation.com, Walker will make $180,000, which is $100,000 less than he made as the league's highest-paid receiver in 2019 in Toronto. The contract does not include a signing bonu...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

And another wish list item would be finding out the scoop on Jevon Cottoy. He opted out but I believe the Lions still retain his rights. Cottoy had a tryout with the Houston Texans last month. Under the terms of the opt-out provisions negotiated between the CFL and the players' association, he has ...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

The Lions have extended starting fullback David Mackie and backup DB Hakeem Johnson, who were both slated to become free agents next month. That leaves 33 players on the potential free agent list, including WR Shaq Johnson (Hakeem's brother).

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

The Lions have extended DB Victor Gamboa through 2022. He was slated to become a free agent in February. Gamboa looked good in seven games played in 2019 and was projected to be a starter in the cancelled 2020 season.

Re: Merry Christmas fellow Lionbackers!

Merry Christmas, David and all Lionbackers who have kept the Lions’ discussion going during this long, long offseason. I too missed Blitz’s Night Before Christmas. I hope he and other longtime posters return for the new season. After moving to Kamloops last year, I’m still looking forward to commuti...

Re: Wonderful community gesture by the Lions.

I saw that. I suspect they're all unsold Adidas jerseys from 2016-19. Current jerseys made by New Era look almost identical. The donated jerseys are still newer than anything in my closet. My newest jerseys are plain orange Reebok ones that were given away to season ticketholders in the 2015 season,...

Mike Reilly, Lemar Durant restructure contracts

The Lions have resolved Mike Reilly's contract grievance and restructured the two remaining years of his contract. They've also extended Lemar Durant's contract through 2022. Neither player was a pending free agent. The Lions agreed to pay Reilly the $250,000 he had been guaranteed for the cancelled...
