    Serious Eskimos 2019 Free Agency

    Figured a new thread to start the day would be appropriate. We're not in the offseason anymore Dorothy.

    Here's Brock's chance to put a stamp on things. Likely going to be a red and black one.

    I don't mind this. Guess we'll have to wait and see what shakes out in an hour.

    I'm warming up to the idea of Trevor Harris, like I said, I haven't been a huge fan, but I also haven't watched him super closely. There's no doubt the guys been productive, hopefully we can get him over the hump and win a championship.

    Ellingson has also been one of my favorite non-Eskimo players over the last few years.

    I'd love to see Rogers here. Tough dude, plays with attitude. Harris and Ellingson will be expensive, but we need a QB. Hopefully we keep Walker and Grymes. Santos- Knox would upgrade the LB spot and Spencer Wilson could start at any Oline position. It's not a Christmas wish list free agency, it has to fit our budget.

    They need to upgrade at the Oline position, especially at the tackles. If you are downgrading the QB position, you need to have a good Oline to hopefully allow the lesser QB more time to make plays.

    Glad to see they are looking shoring up the O line. Cater to BC just might keep Walker in green and gold. If we can keep Walker and add Ellington, with the signing of Smith our receiving core looks very good. A good quarter back can fine open receivers if he has the time. Now what can we do about our Defense and Offensive lines?

    3DownNation has opened a free agency live blog, constantly updating. Kinda quiet right now.

    These 3 would definitely help the Esks at least be competitive this year.

    I still think that the reported $600K for Harris is on the rich side, but going with any of the other free agent QB's is a bigger gamble.
    Is it game day yet?????

    Re: Eskimos 2019 Free Agency

    There are a hell of a lot of holes on this Eskimo team. Today is Brock's chance to really solidify things moving forward...if we come out of it with no major signings then I think the questioning of Brock will ramp up and rightly so.

    One of my favourite days of the year...free agency day!

    Someone is going to pay it. And it's likely Brock. Still need a backup too? Can't tie up a million bucks in QB's.

    Get Jennings for 200,000? I don't want Glenn here.

    I like this combo, but Jennings is bound to get a starting job somewhere given the lack of quality QB's right now.

    Am ok with this except possibly Ellingson. I thought he showed signs of slowing down last season as he was very unproductive in a number of games down the stretch. Not saying that he's necessarily done but I wouldn't overpay for him. I'd much rather have Walker back.

    Walker was slowing down too, though IMO. Not to mention that he's coming off the major targeting injury from Labor Day.

    Have to say this is the most exciting FA since it started. Just like the movie, Draft Day. Hopefully we have a Sonny Weaver pulling the strings.

    No way JJ doesn't get paid somewhere around 400k...at least.

    Re: Eskimos 2019 Free Agency

    I've long figured SV Rogers would be a good FA pickup for us.
    Harris and Ellingston are two of the best at their position; surprised Ottawa would let them get away - after already losing Diontae Spencer. But they both played awful in the Grey Cup game in Edmonton; I'd be cautious. Would rather see Walker back.

    I'm surprised TSN doesn't have anything live for free agency today. You'd think they would at least have a recap show at the end of the day. Disappointing.

    Re: Eskimos 2019 Free Agency

    Harris would be amazing, given what's out there right now. With him and Maas together, and Tevaun Smith, and Ellingson, I'd say our offensive firepower may still be in decent shape. Harris in Maas's system could be really good.

    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    I'm surprised that you're surprised. I mean, there's probably some regional ping pong tournament to cover on three channels already!
    Just a quick shout out to Mr."Winning isn't everything" for pis*ing away not one but TWO HoF QB's. F*ck you Len and good riddance.
