    I actually wouldn't mind taking a shot on Bridge, and to a lesser extent Jennings. I think both of those guys are young enough that with the right coaching and a change of scenery they might be able to rebound and salvage their careers. With Bridge, I like his moxy and with his athleticism, I think Maas could turn him into a more complete QB. He's got the tools, but McAdoo is not the guy to develop a young QB.

    If you want to go the more experienced route, I'd look at Lulay assuming he does make it to FA. I know he was previously considered a lifer in BC but not sure if that's still the case now with Hervey there. We all know how Reilly would feel about having his buddy backing him up and could be another draw for him to resign if it hasn't already happened yet at that point, and I believe Lulay can still step in and win you a game in emergency situations. Also, Ricky Ray hasn't made any official announcements that I've seen and I think it's only a matter of time before he winds up back here in some capacity. With the change of direction in Toronto he might want to come back and finish his career off behind Mike before transitioning to the coaching staff.

    I still like Klein as well, and I'm hoping he can win the number three job next year, but I don't see him being ready to leapfrog to number two yet, and any new guy coming in is likely to be battling for a PR spot.
    I think Jennings will be solid as a back-up wherever he goes. He definitely needs a change of scenery & he’ll be fine.

    Reilly and Jennings...I'd be drooling. I think Jennings will be great, once he settles down.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    I agree I aleady brought his name up as a potential back up here.. diez was NOT impressed however lol

    But I think Jennings has a lot going for him as a guy who can get u home come injury etc.... double digit starts and prob wins in this league would be a nice transmission from Glenn..

    I really don't see Jennings accepting a back up role next year. There will be multiple teams potentially needing a starter with some type of CFL experience, including us (if Reilly leaves), Calgary (if Bo leaves for NFL), Sask, BC (although i doubt he re signs there after Hervey's media comments), Toronto, and Montreal. I think it is much more likely he signs with one of these teams as a starter than agreeing to come here as a backup.

    With the thousands of former players, coaches, staff and executive that have been with the Eskimos, it’s no easy task to monitor every obituary out there.

    That being said, it’s also possible that they knew, but didn’t want it to get lost in the Grey Cup festivities going on - the Esks were posting quite a bit every day, and Jim Hole deserved the respect that waiting 10 days afforded the announcement.

    Terry Jones (yeah, yeah, I know) said that the Esks only became aware of it on Monday.

    He was the president of the team, and a vital person behind the scene in sports in Edmonton. Whether's it's on time or not, I'm glad he's being recognized for his many contributions.

    Hey guys just listening in regina cjme Green Zone radio show and Glen Suitor mentioned that chances where Mike Reilly ends up signing is Eskies 30%,Lions-30%,Sliders -30% and 10% everybody else.Now slidernation is drooling and really think that they will sign Reilly which makes me vomit.Suitor also said that not only is Mike waiting for the new CBA but he thinks that Reilly tests Free Agency after talking to Mike at the CFL awards.What does everybody think?

    If we lose Reilly who would everybody want as our starter next year?

    I’m surprised that people haven’t talked a bit more about the possibility of MR signing in riderville. For all the loyalty people talk about towards Swerve...let’s not forget who his head coach was when we our team was at its best.

    I think Jones' chances would improve if he replaced his OC.

    Mcadoo was reillys Oc here as a Mo, I doubt he has any issues with him.. especially when jones defence has proven to get u 8-9 wins without any offence at all...

    Still think reilly stays here imho.. way to many question marks in bc, but I think riders have a chance.. more so than bc

    Eskimos resigned a lot of their 2018 draft class, who ended the year on the practice roster. And Mason Woods:

    EDM ADD NAT Jordan BEAULIEU (DB) Western University
    EDM ADD NAT Peter BERRYMAN (WR) Auburn
    EDM ADD NAT Tanner GREEN (RB) Concordia
    EDM ADD NAT Curtis KRAHN (OL) Calgary
    EDM ADD NAT Mason WOODS (OL) Idaho

    Green and Beaulieu have already played games for us. Beaulieu could be our future starting safety.

    No big FA will sign until the CBA gets done. And unless the CFL wants a talent drain en masse, then they had better increase their minimum salary to beat the Alliance.

    There are a lot of guys with deals done and just waiting to see what the CBA has in it before the paperwork gets filed too...

    I can't remember ever seeing that many on all the teams. Everyone waiting for a big payday with a new CBA ?

    The established talent making $200-400k won't go anywhere. It's the younger guys who will stop coming north, I think.

    I'm beginning to wonder if there really is a Mason Woods. Can't remember him dressing for a game either with the Argos or us. This will be his 3rd CFL year. Starting to look like a Danny Groulx X 2.

    An excellent depth player who can play many positions? Under rated how much we missed having guys like that this year. Not good enough to be a consistent starter but can give you a game or 2 without a huge downgrade. I'm looking specifically at that position on the OL and the secondary depth. We just did not have it.

    Yes, when we won the Cup, Greaves really helped us when we had oline injuries. Played C & G . Noticing Calgary's Spencer Wilson is a FA. iirc he has played most oline spots. Would be a starter on most CFL teams.

    Really don't know. But the AAF season starts in February.

    The CFL isn't the kind of league that can survive a work stoppage, and the CFL draft takes place in May, so best scenario is January. Bad scenario is spring. Worst scenario is no more CFL.

    I was shocked Groulx didn't play this year. Came out of the great program at Laval as a mature, pro ready prospect. Started games as a rookie. Injuries slowed him down a bit, but he seemed ready for a starters role - was big and mean and had paid his dues. I understood the Esks didn't want to pay him starter money so he tested the market. Didn't end up anywhere all year. I was shocked that Montreal or Saskatchewan didn't sign him. Eskimos could have used him, as we were playing 3 Americans at the end of the year.
