    Hot Chris Jones is gone!!!!

    Took a job with the Browns

    Riders down a GM, HC and DC. Forget looking attractive to FAs!

    And all the fans seem to think LaPo is an option for HC.

    Best option for them is Trestman, clearly, but man... Jones ain't exactly class.

    I said he'd be gone in 3 yrs
    I hit them as hard as I could on the mouth right from the start of the game so they were thinking this was going to be a long day. Sooner or later one of us had to quit. And it wasn't going to be me.

    So did I, also was happy they gave him coach of the year, I thought that would cement a move.

    What a turncoat traitor. Didn’t have the gumption to tell the Riders he was negotiating with the NFL.

    I'm curious if he got upfront money with his new deal as that would be shady as heck.

    to be fair, there was previous word out that there had been some NFL mentions of inquries about CJ...

    read someone post just a comment on twitter that, his previous contract had no NFL out clause? so he signed this one last week WITH a clause?

    not sure to what extent its the truth. either way...

    Pffft 3 years and like 5 weeks.

    Easiest prediction ever. No one should be surprised by this. I suspect many people will be surprised by this.

    I'll be slightly nonplussed if that bonus counts against the cap.

    The Riders' coaching salary levels would be nonplussed as well.

    Oooh
    I bet that burns ....
    Just when it looked like the Roughies were finally on their way up and out of the sewage lagoon (which is were we were end of last season btw)

    CJ one heck of a fine coach and football man. I believe we wouldn’t have the GC in 2015 without him. Glad we don’t have to compete against him anymore.


    Work undoubtedly cut out for him in Cleveland.

    Thanks for the memories. All the best to you CJ!!!

    Why not delay signing a week with the Riders if he was actively negotiating with an NFL team?

    The CFL lost a marquee talent elvaluator and defensive mind yesterday. I'm not a fan of that.

    However, the riders specifically lost that guy, and I'm a huge fan of that!!

    Re: Chris Jones is gone!!!!

    I thought Jones liked being the football czar, with unlimited power to decide on his roster, coaching staff, and all coaching strategy.
    Will be a very different role to move to having no authority, and way down the pecking order. Maybe he will enjoy less stress and only getting to think about the X/O's and football fundamentals. How his defense will translate to the NFL should be interesting. Seems like there is less time for plays to develop there.

    I think Jones was unhappy with the Coaching Cap the CFL put in place, and that motivated him to take a pay cut in hopes of it paying off down the road with a coordinator position.

    This is his chance to work his way up the NFL coaching ranks. I think Jerry Jones will eventually hire him as head coach. They seem like a perfect match.

    Check this out from Marsh and Melo (Marshall Ferguson). One of my favorite things I've seen on Twitter in a long time!

    I love the line, "When a guy wears the same shirt every day, he likely didn't pack for the long-term.".

    Re: Chris Jones is gone!!!!

    Did his entire coaching staff renew as well? If so, then he may have wanted them to have contracts for the 2020 season before he left, and made that part of his negotiation.

    He was already under contract for 2019. He just received an extension to cover 2020. What I don't know when it comes to that sort of thing is do they rip up the old deal and draft a new 2 year deal or do they just draft up a separate deal to cover 2020 and kick in the day the 2019 deal expires? The twitter comment sounds like sour grapes by a Rider fan or someone who carries a grudge against Jones. As a guy who was VP Football Ops as well as GM, HC and DC it's hard to imagine Jones didn't have some form of out clause written into his original deal and any subsequent extensions.
