BREAKING: ESKS TRADE QB NICHOLS TO BLUE BOMBERS


The Edmonton Eskimo Football Club has agreed to trade quarterback Matt Nichols to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in exchange for a conditional 7th round pick in the 2017 CFL Draft.

Nichols originally signed as a free agent on Oct. 13, 2010. In 45 career games (12 starts), he completed 270-of-443 passes for 3,386 yards and 19 touchdowns with 18 interceptions. He also rushed 36 times for 138 yards and three touchdowns.

this will guarantee that the winless streak continues. everyone is in on the conspiracy now. it is driven by rogers and sportsnet, because of the pure jealous rage about how awesome the riders are. have no fear riderville, within the next 20 years you will be relevant again. that is if the CFL is still alive.

All it took to get him was a 7th round pick??? WOW…Notwithstanding the good potential of Smith, he would have been a very cheap insurance policy considering the really low asking price. And he is not a terribly old guy in football terms. With the emergence of Franklin he must have become available. Very interesting.

Good trade on the Blue Bombers, " 7th round" 2017 CFL draft pick. Some immediate improvement at that position for their team.

I would not want Nichols as the Sask QB... But right now they could use some experience.

ps., still glad they got rid of T. Sunseri though...

Looking forward to seeing Keith Price at least get a shot at it... hopefully so...

Too bad Tamon is gone. The Riders could have had him for a second or third round pick.

I thought you guys said to never trade Canadians for imports. Hervey must of lost his mind lol

If Taman would've made this trade everyone would've been all over him for trading away a draft pick.

We already have a promising, young QB with a veteran (hopefully) returning this month.

Wow - if he is playing Sunday how much of the Bombers playbook could he possibly know . Maybe he is an incredibly quick study ...

What's the point of coming on a CFL blog just to put it down? Nothing better to do with your life in your mom's basement?

"K"
is obviously a QB expert and has very high standards for the riders. there is no way he would want him in SASK. the firing of those two guys is fueling the dillusions that the retarded mass of rider fans is driving this bus. now they can decide who is and who isn't good enough. take it to new levels stupidity every year, and the best part is you all think you are the greatest fans. sheer stupidity.

Thank-you anon...

I never figured I was a 'QB expert', but if you say so...

Cheers,

No, taman knew Nichols was available on the cheap but didn't bother to do anything on behalf of the Riders. Tino was his idea for the team future. Big sigh of relief he's gone forever.
