  • Blue Bombers Free Agents 2019

    Blue Bombers Flush With Free Agents
    Darrin Bauming
    Following their loss in the West Division Final, and the club's most promising season in years the Winnipeg Blue Bombers now enter the off-season with a number of key positions requiring general manager Kyle Walters' attention.
    The current CFL-CFLPA collective bargaining agreement is set to expire, which will have significant contract implications for both sides when it comes to the upcoming negotiations and eventual result. This leaves many players and teams alike waiting for some sort of conclusion be found before exploring their free agent situation heading into 2019.
    Atop Winnipeg's list of free agent priorities is linebacker Adam Bighill, who, following a superb 2018 season is pitted up against Hamilton's Larry Dean for the CFL's Most Outstanding Defensive Player award to be handed out during Grey Cup week in Edmonton.
    But Bighill is far from alone when exploring Winnipeg's lengthy list of impact players that are due to hit free agency, including the likes of offensive tackle
    Stanley Bryant, veteran kicker Justin Medlock, special teams demon Mike Miller, emerging linebacker Jovan Santos-Knox, perennial All-Star safety Taylor Loffler, and impact defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat.

      I have a suspicion Bighill won't be back with the Bombers.

        Lots of big impact players who will be asking for a bit more cash in 2019.

                  Every team will be very busy making sure they sign their own must have free agents. There will be some shuffling of the deck but in times of turmoil like this many choose the devil they know. It will be interesting to see how quickly the CBA can be negotiated. For the good of everyone I hope the find resolution very soon.

                    Bryan Bennett pass

                    Kienan LaFrance* pass
                    Timothy Flanders pass
                    Johnny Augustine* pass

                    [Weston Dressler with a third paycut - he could finish as a Rider - wife is from here - could use his vet savvy
                    Nic Demski* - better than what we have but wanted to be in Wpg

                    Ryan Lankford pass

                    Kenny Lawler pass

                    Offensive Line:

                    Stanley Bryant pass too old and expensive go with Cofield and Vaughn if Coleman is not up to another season
                    Jermarcus Hardrick pass

                    Matthias Goossen*
                    Sukh Chungh*
                    Michael Couture*

                    Qadr Spooner*

                    four good reasons why JSJ can be re-signed other teams need to lock down their own CDN OL





                    Special Teams:
                    Justin Medlock pass don't want the contract or the ratio
                    Chad Rempel* pass
                    Mike Miller* pass
                    John Rush* pass
                    [B]Shayne Gauthier*pass
                    Frederic Plessius* pass never lived up to promise

                    Thomas Miles* pass

                    Jeff Hecht* pass
                    Brendan Morgan* pass
                    Frank Renaud* pass
                    Jacob Firlotte* pass

                    Jesse Briggs* pass

                    Defensive Line:
                    Jackson Jeffcoat - love Jeffcoat but can he play DT in our system?

                    Tristan Okpalaugo pass

                    Drake Nevis - love Nevis he can definitely improve our run D
                    Jake Thomas* pass
                    Trent Corney*pass
                    Gerald Rivers pass
                    [B]Patrick Choudja pass

                    Linebacker:
                    Adam Bighill hope he gets really expensive - it would be fun to see him but we need to lock down our OWN high priced Defenders
                    Jovan Santos-Knox - also nice but no room at the Inn
                    Ian Wildpass
                    Kyrie Wilson pass

                    Defensive Back:
                    Taylor Loffler - seems to have finally shaken his injury issues - would love to have him but likely too expensive


                    pass ours are better

                    Kevin Fogg
                    Brandon Alexander

                    Maurice Leggett

                    Tyneil Cooper


                    not much I would want from WPG - Dressler with a third paycut and one or both of Jeffcoat and Nevis on the interior

                      No way to Loffler. I used to like him but these last two years he always goes for the hit. He is slow and a horrible tackler. Goosen would be a welcome addition. No to Dressler, he is done

                        come on - give him a third pay cut and sign him - we could use the vet savvy - his wife is still here I believe - let him finish his career here

                        Italian Star deli can give him 25% off for old times sake

                          Not a fan of the retirement home approach. This isn't Santa Maria.

                          All of this is mute anyway because I highly doubt Dressler would play for Jones again.
                          Waiting for the big ole splash...

                            thought we were loaded with Crazy people?


                            and Why? Jones said you ain't worth 180? he wasn't - never played anywhere for that - and his contract has to be coming down to 80 or less now - better to play for that here than go to MTL
