LaFrance really hasn't done much outside of his one play off game a few years back.   I thought Augustine ran with more power and seemed to be a cheaper and better solution.  

Agreed, I was impressed with Augustine's short appearance.

seeing that....Walters should be in his ear...options to flip ratio...or help with ratio

Definitely a ratio changer BUT I don't like this guys injury history....Sat out a whole season down there and then comes up lame after he returns???Maybe a spate of bad luck.... He could also be worth the risk....we'll see if Kyle shows any interest

Free agency was kind of frustrating - but I really do see the Bombers in a massive position of strength moving forward

There will 99.9% be a 'Bighill level' signing before the season - I think Ackie or someone like that...  there's just not many teams left that haven't blown their capspace - maybe Bombers, Sask and RedBlacks...  TO if Ray is gone...

While not quite the same caliber of player, Bouka could be this year’s Bighill. A late free agency signing who just happens to become available and who is exactly what we need. Damn his injury history, he would be an exponential upgrade to what we have now and what we had last year at safety.

Yeah that's the one rub..some injury issues...but then again was it just bad luck?..People clamoured the same way about Neuf but he hasn't missed a game in the last what25..26 games he started since 2017 and last year with play-offs

Bouka would be an easy choice for safety, but also field corner too, and hey if we get lucky and sign him..say Ackie and Jones/Conteh prove worthy at safety we could conceivably have 2 Nationals in the defensive backfield or one at safety and one at sam, with adequate in game depth/rotation...You would have to think Bouka and Ackie would both be starters somewhere (Sam and Corner) as well as Jones or Conteh at safety...nice flexability...

#BCLions are exploring trade possibilities for Solomon Elimimian & David Foucault, per sources. Nothing is imminent. GM Ed Hervey declined comment. He did say at the Reilly signing that fans could expect the team to have to part with some familiar names. @cfl @CFLonTSN @TSN1040

Elimimian anyone ? 

 

Jeffcoat - Bryant - Thomas - Jefferson
   Bighill - Elimimian - Gaitor/Fenner

 

or loading up the box: 

Jeffcoat - Bryant - Thomas - Jefferson - Roh
              Bighill - Elimimian 

🤔

I think loading up on pass rush/DL and starting two NI’s in the secondary is a great strategy.    Don’t even have to be pricey NI’s.  Anyone playing field corner is giving a 15 yard cushion, just need someone who can play the ball a little and tackle.

You mean there are consequences to blowing your wad in free agency?

I assumed Elimimian's deal included a big bonus that's already been paid? 

If so, a trade could work out well for a team close to the cap. But, how does it save BC? 

If no big bonus, why not?

We all knew BC would pay later for spending early. 

Teams have the option of waiting out the BC Lions. They will have to make the first moves.

Depending on the contract situations and bonuses, a team could get a real steal here. I bet Hervey has some suitors. I'm thinking the Riders would have interest in Elimimian and Foucault.

hey if they're too tight to the cap they gotta sell off guys I'd play hardball and give up less than a first. Make Hervey regret spending like a drunken sailor. 

Dropping elimimian seems like a ridiculous move after some of their signings 

free agency sure makes bighill contract look sweet for three years though...

Man, Solomon would look very good working with bighill behind the line. What do we give up for him? Maybe Bighill tries to convince Walter's to bring him in like the old days in BC where they were very dominant.
