Ouch that is a lot of guys to sign up ...   I'm hoping they can retain most of that o-line

I think a piece or two will probably be gone.... but I would have to think the plan is to start Gray next season!

I'd actually say no to medlock. I doubt he wants to take a cut, and honestly he is just too expensive. You don't need to pay a kicker that much. Hell, maybe Lankford trys out next year as a kicker lololololol

I dunno, if we can't score TDs we're going to need those 57 yard field goals and punts inside the 10 yard line. I don't know how much he gets paid but he's worthy every penny.

I say no to dressler. Not worth the money and we need to shift that money to a proven free agent receiver who can stretch the field. 

The scary thing is without him our record (IIRC) has been putrid

Just this past season (0-4), so I'd take it with a grain of salt.

In 2017, the Bombers were undefeated without him in the lineup (4-0). In 2016, they were also undefeated without him in the lineup (3-0).

I know for certain he wants to stay in Winnipeg...and if he comes back for same money...have no issue with it....he's worth it, especially if we can flip our ratio to allow us to have another skill position guy on the roster for returns...be it a receiver...or a guy who can play DB.

On the fence with Dressler...If we can land a big time number one to go with Adams and Woli...then I actually wouldn't mind seeing Dressler back in same role, but wouldn't pay more than what Demski got last year for him, and you start Simonese on the boundary...truly believe he will bust out next year like Woli did this year.

We do what we gotta do to try and lock down Biggie...also JSK wants to resign here, so that should be a slam dunk...and whispers I hear is that Goose/Chungh and Bryant are all but a formality once the dust settles with the CBA

We just need to focus on the Jeffcoat situation and get him locked in...and if it is ath the expense of Opo...thats the price of business, tho I know the staff love Opo here..will be inter sting to see where our main targets are with our own guys

Plus I think he is a positive for this team...

I agree that as good as Medlock was and is, he is aging and handsomely paid but aging. We do need to start grooming a replacement, preferably a home-grown.

sign dressler and someone better. guy was still our top threat at receiver so losing him doesn't upgrade us at all

Is Dressler a good player?  Sure, but he's also playing the most important slot position.  And regardless of whether he was injured this year he didn't even get close to reaching the 1000 yard mark (being durable is a good thing).  Wolitarsky actually had more yards than him this year playing a ton of his time as the last read.  We had 1 receiver in the top 20 this year.  So it's either Nichols really is that bad or our American receivers still need to be upgraded.

I don't think age ends a kickers career as quick as other positions out there.

I just don't get the idea that Dressler isn't worth the money... he was our best receiver all season long and Nichols clearly looks to him when he needs a play. How is that not worth the money? 

Nichols should have looked his way a couple more times Sunday...
