Isnt antigha usually playing up on the line? Might be a little too slow for safety.

awe is certainly faster, but antigha is a gamer. 

These two veterna, versatile, athletic tweeners makes me think they want to have bighill play more of his normal mid deep rover and have a wil that can do the HCF etc stuff while scraping to the ball. 

Certainly both are low risk high reward and will provide a good push for competition at WLB, which as been pretty flat in the past.

I don't see why the Bombers would switch to the a 3-4?

They won’t.  Outside of short yardage you’ll never see 7 DL/LB on a CFL field at the same time.

Will see as usual some 30 fronts with two backers and a mess of DB’s and might see some 30 fronts with a rushing LB.

Not as the base D.   Just some situational stuff, with all the hybrid guys we are amassing on D.  Bombers should be able to throw a bunch of different looks out there.

We used this mix a good bit last year, especially late. But also the way we play jefferson, and jake/drake on the nose, its more like a 3-4 over formation any way then a traditional 4-3. 

I dont see us becoming a firm 3-4 team, but we are allready a hybrid front with heavy nose tackle usage team. 

I think the versatility of running a 3-4 with a more traditional gap cancellation 30, and 2 full time sams would be great in the cfl. But no one seems to be pursuing that much. More teams are using the 3-4 over set like we do.

Every team does that, though.

Sure seemed like we were sprinkling 3-4 into the D a fair bit in the second half of the season last year...

Yes 30 fronts, three linemen.  That’s pretty common.  You might see 4 backers on the field a couple times a game around the goal-line.  Most teams don’t even dress 4 LB’s who play D.
 

The big adjustment happened when Jeffcoat returned along with Kongbo taking more reps where they would consistently run three edge type rushers on the field on passing downs, with or without a nose tackle.

Im sure I saw both Jefferson and Jeffcoat lining up as an LB at times... especially in the playoffs

At times we dress enough LBers for the whole league to run a 3-4. Maybe a mild exaggeration :P But yeah mostly team bodies at lber depth. 

Itd be more of a 3-2 or 3-3 front. We wont see a true 3-4 any time soon in regular play.

I doubt Antigha or Awe got much of a signing bonus if any...  they are coming in to compete in camp just like everyone else

Wilson (Awe/Peters) - Bighill (Miles) - Maston (Antigha)

Jefferson (McAllister) - Thomas (Griffiths) - Richardson - Jeffcoat (Hansen)

Getting some serious depth on the front seven - really looking like 3-4

Plus Jesse Briggs' return. Depth indeed!
