The joker in the deck may be that Hervey is now out of Wally's shadow and has to prove himself. To make a splash, I wouldn't put it past him to thumb his nose at the salary cap.

Braley would like to have a word with you.

You have some pretty unpopular opinions. Bighill is at worst the second best MLB in the league. Unless he blows out his ACL that isn't going to change overnight

With Singleton in the NFL... who is ahead of Bighill??

Folks around here are using the wrong word. It's not that we can't afford Chungh. It's that we won't pay him what he wants.

I don't understand the point you're trying to make here... Are you suggesting the Bomber should just pay him whatever he wants, regardless of value and SMS?... I'm not sure if 250k is a number that someone made up on this site... but if that's his number, I doubt he gets that anywhere...

he won't get it...cause as it stands it would make him the highest paid non-QB player in the league....does anyone think he is the player to command that??....nope....200k I bet is what he maxes out at..185 being more realistic and practical...

Has Chungh received any interest from the NFL?  That's telling.

No, I'm not suggesting we pay him whatever he wants. I'm suggesting that we pay him whatever he's worth on the open market plus a bit to make sure we keep him. Losing him for a couple of thousand dollars to stay within the number we arbitrarily choose for him doesn't help us at all. It helps another team get better and stronger in their NI starters.

The idea that we can't afford him is dumb. We can afford him if we choose to.

I think there's two things wrong here: 1) It's ridiculous to believe the number we have for him is arbitrary.   2) It's ridiculous to believe they'd let an all star NI OL walk for "a couple thousand dollars". Nothing about Kyle Walters FA history says any of what you're thinking is even remotely possible.

Its seems fairly clear that Gray has already replaced Chungh...  the question I guess in Walters' mind is whether Chungh can replace Neufeld at LG and if they think Neufeld is durable for a full season.

$250k is maybe NI Tackle money... not right guard.

I do think that now Burnham has been signed $$ might magically 'free' up for Chungh...

well hell...then they gotta shed some serious salaries...either of them let alone both with now implications...especially with Soli pulling in 200k+

maybe they cut him and he decides to rejoin Biggie..and Fenner...Roh...I'd pay him in the 180-195k range in a heartbeat to join the defense

I think you are knit-picking a little hard at those semantics.

1. Arbitrary - Not the 'whim' definition, the 'autocratic in the use of authority' definition. In other words, we have a number that we've decided on.

2. If some other team makes a higher offer than we do, we could lose Chungh for a few (Yes, I changed from a couple to a few) thousand dollars. Nothing to say that we will match or beat any other offers or even that Chungh will give us the chance.

Well that’s kind of the point - in Neufeld is now legit durable then LG is already locked down

Interested to see where Demski ends up.  Inconsistent but still a NI who put up 800 yards from scrimmage.

Watching Bisons games back in the day, I had high hopes that he might turn into a superstar for the Bombers. Not sure he'll ever be that, but he's a real weapon when he's healthy. Can do a lot of important things for a team...

You're right, but fortunately, our NI depth is such now that we can let him walk because we have guys to replace him.  I liked Demski but he was a bit fragile and his ball control leaves a lot to be desired.   If he's moving on, good luck to him.
