I love signing 31 year old receivers to huge deals coming off their worst season in years. 

Still had a great season. Probably a good fit for Nichols too. Fill the role that Dressler is leaving.

Hes 30 and by far not his worst season last year. Hes good 2 good years left in him. 

He will get the same contract as Walker roughly and not be nearly as effective.

Can't force anyone to sign... 

$225k for Ellingson for three years would make Chungh's departure less traumatic

You sure like to spend money Floyd, $225k for Ellingson is a losing proposition for all concerned, not likely he can put up numbers to justify that salary with Nichols looking his way, big regrets all-round and blood-thirsty fans will be baying for his beheading to celebrate next Christmas morning.

Ellingson is a big upgrade over Dressler. Would I prefer Walker, sure but I like the idea of him in Blue and Gold. Adams-Ellingson-Wolitarsky is a nice 1-2-3

If the Bombers grab Walker- that would open things WIDE open for Adams and make our offense crazy good. Adams is a good receiver but not a legit #1. Behind a legit #1 I think Adams will be much more effective.

Not sure what you think the price is for talent now...  if we're looking for an elite REC in free agency - $150-180k isn't going to cut it...

We're talking about Walker who's 'almost' another Bowman-type signing...  Nichols is not Mike Reilly...  

But Elizondo is pretty close to Lapo...  Ellingson would thrive in Blue and Gold

Losing 4 Canadian starters will be devastating.  Expecting Gray and Couture to step in and provide a seamless transition to the league's former best O-line is not realistic.  We will have lost a significant amount of national depth with the departure of Chungh on top of Loffler, Goosen, Corney and Demski.  

I will be disappointed if we lose Chungh and Walters is incapable of bringing in any decent national players as starters to compensate.

$225 for Ellingson is ridiculous given his season last year.  Not sure he is the guy I would want here as a number 1.  Walker would be far more attractive.  Then again, given our Qb it might not matter.

Santos-Knox=Judas

Thanks for all the help in the playoffs

I guess we can say that to ALL free-agents since they're moving for the $$$ (better pay), right ? 

😕
