Stupid comments to follow I'm sure.
Me, I'm thinking good moves.

I hope the Riders can succeed in signing speedy running back Shakir Bell from the Eskimos when he hits free agency.

Nice to see Darian's brother Justin Durant on the cover of the current issue of Sports Illustrated.

Astute moves. Riders are building a championship team. Exciting times ahead, it's a good feeling to know the club is in the good hands of Mr Reynolds,Mr Jones, Mr Murphy. Got damn! It's exciting times ahead indeed!

Ainsworth was an outstanding special teams player not too long ago but he was unable to stay healthy. If he can regain his health, he would be a good pick-up by another team.

Why does the Rider Roster still list Joe McKnight? Is it they don't know he was killed? All players released today were pending free agents. My guess would be they couldn't come to terms.One thing about the Jones boy he certainly isn't afraid of change.

Who's darian, justin? Only Durant anyone knows would be Lamar who plays for the Calgary Stampeders, he's an elite player who plays in the CFL.

Watch who you calling boy_ BOY!
There's a new sheriff in town, the name is Mr. Chris Jones.

Chambers made $177k last year. Wasn't a great signing by Jones et al. Signings like this are the reason I and others have little to no faith in Jones as a GM.

3 of 4 were brought in by Jones and Co last year. So if its a good move to release them after just one season, thatd mean they were bad signings in the first place.

The merry go round is picking up speed!

Where did you find that salary number?

Dex said...

Salary was a quote from Ballsy.

No real surprises. Mitch GAle didnt look bad, but obvously the addition of Glenn brought the writing on the wall. Steele was always hurt, and Chambers was inconsistent at best.

Evan Wiome said...

Pretty sure Ballsy is way out to lunch, or is confusing Chambers with Capicotti.
The link below is pretty accurate for salary information:
