    Dressler is done. Too many injuries. Can not rely on him. If he is brought in it would have to be for under $125,000

        A veteran receiver to mentor our young group might be useful. Is Dressler that guy? Does Bagg have anything left? What about Rosie?

              Yup. 750k. Dunk wrote on it yesterday

              3downnation.com/2019/02/11/argos-preparing-monster-offer-for-bo-levi-mitchell-sources/

              The Toronto Argonauts are planning to open the Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment vault for quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell. According to sources, the Argos have formulated a plan to pitch Mitchell on the opportunity of becoming the face of the franchise in Canadaís largest city and are preparing a contract with a dollar amount to match: in the $750,000 range. MLSE officially took over ownership of the Argos in December 2017, adding to the sports portfolio that already included the Maple Leafs, Raptors and Toronto FC. MLSE clearly wants stars to highlight championship-contending teams. Each of those franchises has used elite players in building title-calibre squads. The Reds signed Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Giovinco which led to an MLS Cup in 2017. Last July, the Leafs inked John Tavares to a seven-year, $77 million contract to go with Auston Matthews making the Buds favourites to hoist the Stanley Cup. Seventeen days later, the Raptors traded for Kawhi Leonard and at the trade deadline pulled off another large deal to get Marc Gasol for an NBA title run. Bill Manning has served as Toronto FC president since 2015 and added the Argos role prior to the 2018 season. The Double Blue won a Grey Cup in 2017, but for all the talents Ricky Ray has displayed on the field, outside the white lines heís an unassuming guy. Ray has ridden the Go Train to games at BMO Field and few if any one recognize the man with four Grey Cup rings. Mitchell has a winning pedigree: his 69-15-2 regular season win-loss record and .802 winning percentage is the top mark in CFL history (former Argo signal-caller Doug Flutie is second at .746.) Two Grey Cup victories, two CFL MOP awards and a vibrant personality: adding Mitchell fits the current MLSE portfolio in the biggest media market in the country. The Argos could build a flashy new campaign around Mitchell who is in the prime years of his pro football career and use the MLSE machine to put the NFL-calibre quarterback in front of passionate Leafs, Raptors and Toronto FC fans. Mitchell has the chance to create a buzz in Toronto unlike any other player in the CFL while ensuring the Argos compete for the large silver trophy each season. The Argos already have a solid core of receivers with S.J. Green, Armanti Edwards, Rodney Smith as well as Canadians Malcolm Williams and Llevi Noel. But Mitchell doesnít need elite pass catchers: he was the first quarterback in league history to throw for over 5,000 yards without having one single pass catcher reach the 1,000-yard plateau in 2018. Even though paid ticket sales were up at BMO Field last year, Mitchell could further increase the profile of the Argos in Toronto Ė a boost both the team and the league could capitalize on.

                So, since teams like BC & Toronto are behaving like BC & Toronto back in the 90s, does this mean that the SMS is going to be inflated to accommodate their overspending?

                When they come asking for money to pay for free agents they outbid us for this time they can go firetruck they selves

                  SMS is same for everyone and everyone pays close to the limit. All thatís changing with these QB salaries is the distribution.

                            Iím intrigued to see how OíDay will play free agency. This is his first go around with full control and obviously itís the biggest free agency crop we may have ever seen. Just unprecedented.

                            I want to see if heís an aggressive first day big splash kinda GM or one that waits back and tries to pick their spots.

                              He needs to be aggressive if he isnít he runs the risk of losing out on the QBs and losing a guy like Jefferson, that wouldnít be acceptable
