Has anyone seen the salary numbers for the guys we've signed? Or the guys that we kept either? Only one I've heard was Bighill, but it would be interesting to see what we're spending.

What is bighill worth again?

Yeah 250,000. Was the highest paid defensive player until a few days ago. Even though I'm not a fan of spending the big bucks often, I liked this signing at the time. Now that other teams have spent so much on players I doubt will have the same impact, I like it even more.

If you were to ask which 3 defensive players, going into Free Agency, were going to be highly sought after and the best available, you would probably name Willie Jefferson, Micah Johnson and Adam Bighill. 

We got 2 of them.

Impressive.

Jeff Hamilton reports Jefferson got north of $200 grand.

Demski made $148 last season and was asking upwards of $180. Hamilton believes he receive somewhere between the two numbers.

Regarding cfl receivers in the NFL, Williams-Lambert would would look good in the role we had Thompkins in.

As part of the settlement of his grievance, the Riders retain the rights of JWL for 2019.

Brandon Zylstra 

Duke Williams

Marken Michel

Chris Matthews

Diontae Spencer

Bryant Mitchell 

 

these are better options

Were probably best off grooming the Canadian receivers we already have. We're in pretty good shape there.

Seeing that list of receivers gives me hope that we can still get a really good player (and better than some guys that have already signed) before the season starts. Maybe Walters was onto something

That seems really expensive, doesn't it? or is that just me.

For Demski? Always a premium for NIs and he does produce at a reasonable pace so while it might be higher than ideal it's not crazy town numbers.

So the question I have is, who's most likely to shake loose prior to the season starting?

All of them? Honestly I'd be shocked if Matthews got much of a chance considering he's been there done that already and had to come back to the CFL once.

Of the receivers listed that we could show interest in, I'd  go with Mathews,Zylstra and Michel in that order...The Duke hanging right in there at 4....Anyone of those guys gives us the receiver we always needed to stretch the field...Paying a premium for anyone of these guys services is a given considering some of the free agent signings in the receiver department....We were prepared to go deep into the vault for Walker so these guys won't be any different....This team is at a point where you go all out or go home

Willie didn't come cheap, we offered him a contract and he signed for more with you guys

and yet it was suggested by Jefferson that the Bombers weren't the biggest contract he was offered...
