    I didn't view re-signing Sears as a priority, but Gabriel coming back is great! Now to lock up one of White or Owusu-Ansah, and I like Terrence Plummer, but I'd still feel better if Bear Woods went into 2018 as the Argos starting MLB.

    Getting Gabriel was extremely important both for his skills and the ratio but Sears is problematic as he takes dumb penalties and misses assignments sometimes.

    I'd like to see the Argos sign Lirim Hajrullahu as the free agent pickings out there for kickers are not great. Among the kickers, the Argos" Lirim Hajrullahu is the most valuable one available, although Brett Maher is quite good. Former Argo Swayze Waters is also available but his injury record and on again off again FG kicking leave something to be desired. The only other free agent kicker available is the strong legged but inexperienced Quinn Van Glyswyk of the Riders, so it may take a very good offer to resign Hirim or get Maher.

    Does anyone have any idea how far the Argos are below the salary cap at this point to enable them to possibly sign free agents now or later when salary offers typically drop?

    Dang! Hajrullahu signed with Hamilton.

    Some great CFL coverage on TSN 1150 Radio right now....IMO the CFL coverage on TSN 1150 has been a real positive here in the GTA ... hope they can keep it going...

    Nothing earth shattering but it's out there....in some form.

    RT .@TSNDaveNaylor Much speculation that @JMessam could land with the @TorontoArgos. Iím hearing Toronto is not involved in those conversations at this point. #CFL #Argos

    Speculation is speculation. There are also rumours he could end up in Riderville.

    More speculation - TJ Heath heading to Argos or Montreal.

    If Heath ends up in Montreal and Willy re-ups, wouldn't that be something! TJ was my son's favourite player in 2016 so it would be nice if he comes back.

    Lirim signed with the Tiger Cats for around $145,000, according to David Naylor.

    I believe he's from St. Catherines. So Hamilton is a closer to home.
    Also just heard him in an interview, he practices at Players Paradise in Stoney Creek. So guessing the Argos lack of facilities also factored in.
    Not sure if Popp offered him as much money as well.

    $145k is too rich for my blood for Lirim's skill set, but Hamilton really needed a kicker and Lirim gets to be closer to home, so it makes sense for all the parties involved.

    Hopefully Popp gives a call to Quinn Van Gylswyk, kid has a booming leg, and was buried in Sask. Van Gylswyk has more potential than Crapigna IMO, who's leg strength is questionable.

    He doesn't practice at PP during the season. I doubt he would drive all the way to an Argo practice facility in the offseason, no matter how lavish it was, when he can get to Stoney Creek in 30 minutes and without fighting traffic.

    I'd take either Van G or Crapigna. Maybe OV knows -- are there any decent kickers eligible for this year's draft?

    If we have to dress an INT kicker it won't be the end of the world. For much of last season we dressed an INT who saw next to no action on anything other than ST (Cam McDaniel, Worthy). That position could be taken up by a kicker, and the NAT who replaces Lirim on the roster can take over the ST duties.

    You want Popp to trade for Crapigna ?

    Not opposed if it's our best option. Obviously hypothetical as we don't know if he's even available, or what he would cost. Just threw his name out there since Sask is aware of what both guys can do. They might decide Van G is cheaper/better value than Crapigna. Who knows?

    There's a kid out in CanWest - Strenger (Huskies) who has a booming punting leg (44+ yard average in CIS ball is outstanding), plus he had some good place-kicking #s the past couple of seasons; David Smith (Dartmouth) is a place-kicker who i think will be draftable.

    Van G is the guy i'd like to see signed; Isn\t Pfeffer still on the roster? - he has CFL experience now and i believe has plenty of potential.

    Been over this before - IMO way smarter to go with 2 seperate kickers (rather than one dual kicker) - sign a bunch of guys for TC (imports as well) and have real competition - and best punter AND best place-kicker get jobs.

    Wouldn't that take jobs away from Canadians though ?

    I agree though, the League should do away with the ratio, and the best players should make the roster and play. No more 21 Canadian quota or 7 starters.
