Not really. Said they did their best to try and land a receiver, offered as much as everyone else, but players just chose other situations. Have cap flexibility now and if a big time WR shakes loose from the NFL before camp, then they'll be in a good position to try and land one. Also still trying on some other options...

Got the Walters interview here:

We shall go on to the Cup, we shall fight in the West
we shall look on the seas and oceans,
we shall recruit, with growing confidence and growing strength in the passing game,
we shall hunt on the beaches,
we shall peruse the landing grounds,
we shall turn over the fields and the streets,
we shall burrow into the hills;
we shall never surrender,

-Ongoing talks with most pending Bomber F.A.'s

-Will keep eye on NFL cuts for CFL receivers returning, Zylstra, Mitchell etc..

-Likes Jones as Loffler replacement, better in coverage and said it may have occurred last year if not for Jones injury.

-Haven't decided yet whether to go with 2 or 3 DT's and may end up using a CDN. nose-tackle, Nevis future uncertain.

-Likes Demski for his fit in LaPo's playbook.

Interesting hearing from management about what many of posters have been mentioning about Loffler's struggles in coverage...and confirms to me that he didn't get put in a traditional safety role...also interesting that Jones was in position to supplant him...t

yeah...if you didn't know who he was..and just watched him, and looked at the physical aspect...you would think he was an import...that is my impression when watching him

Living for Walters dragging Loffler now that he’s out the door.

Stand on the sidelines waiting for Nichols to sail the ball over your head on a five yard out when we need ten yards?

Come out of the backfield, from multiple angles....and take a dump pass....on 2nd and 10

I think it's jumping up to catch a pass, only to have it bounce off his chest/go directly between his hands, and into the oppositions.
