  • Where's the Chris Jones Extension?

    Riders extended him on December 12th last year and apparently he just hired an assistant GM, so...

    I would expect it early in the new year. He's still obviously making decisions and running things, he shouldn't be doing that with lame duck status. Add that year on to the end.

      Lame duck status doesnít mean he sits around and doesnít do his job. He is under contract and expected to perform whether or not the deal has only 1 year remaining.

                Why? I think its better for club to have him here for 2 years at a time. He seems to like it as well.

                  The reason is if the Riders are successful in getting the Grey Cup in 2020 or 2021. Plus we want long term stability here which we havenít had in a while , and CJ is one of the best

                    As long as we keep getting better, he'll continue to remain employed by us. I'm not worried.

                      For all we know the extension has already happened and they're sitting on the announcement.

                            Sooner than later Jones will want Reynolds to put his money and commitment where his mouth is and say quit two-bitting me with these 1 year extensions. The way I see the FOPs cap and ability to amortize a buyout over a period of time means if Jones added on 1 year beyond 2019 he really only has security for 2019. FOPs cap or not I don't believe any team will hold back on canning a HC because he still has a year left. But if he was to get 2 more years thru 2021 then he is secure thru 2020 no matter what happens. This could be the perfect time for Jones to push for more than just another year getting tacked on.

                              for all we know it's still to come.
