    Most everyone else on from the 2018 PR has re-signed new agreements except Kline. Not sure why - is the team not sold on him after 2 years development? Is he testing the market, or not pursuing a football career? Or is it just a delayed press release to re-sign him?
    Would make sense that with all the flux in the QB market, that he might want to see what the Esks do with their roster before committing to come back and be in a battle for #3. Two years of paying his dues and learning from some good guys, I think I'd be assessing what's out there if I'm him at this point... and that by no means suggests that the Esks wouldn't be his first choice or that they still have interest in him. I don't think he'd had been retained for two years if they didn't like what they see in his potential and progression.

    Wow. At 34 by the time the season would start, that's surprising. This is the only scenario where he leaves and I don't want to lead the lynch mob to Esks head office. If he actually got onto an NFL team and got into game action, I'd immediately become a fan of that team.

    Doug Flutie was 35 when he went to Buffalo, so it's not completely unprecedented.

    I think the Jags (acting) OC knows a little about what Reilly's done in the CFL.

    damn... as much as we would be even more decimated losing Reilly...

    its helluva longshot, but i hope he makes it man...moreso than any other player we've had seeking NFL avenues

    success of my team here in the CFL can surely take a backseat to the human being that is Mike effin Reilly. Go get that money and that dream of every American .

    and quite honestly we dont effin deserve to win with that Rhodent at the top anywho

    True, but Flutie had played in the NFL before. Dieter Brock was 34 during his statistically passable but ultimately disastrous single season as QB of the Los Angeles Rams in 1985.

    If Reilly is willing to potentially hold a clipboard in Jacksonville, that also tells me that he’s willing to consider things other than distance to his wife and daughters. To me that bodes well for our chances to re-signing him if he is indeed staying in the CFL.

    (Yes yes, I know it’s a lot more money in the NFL, however you can’t get much further away from Seattle than Florida....)

    A NFL team could afford to move the entire family - wife, kids, additional caregivers/childminders. It just depends on how badly they want the athlete.
