ARGOS ACQUIRE S.J. GREEN

TORONTO - The Toronto Argonauts have acquired all-star receiver S.J. Green from the Montreal Alouettes in exchange for the a sixth-round selection in the 2017 CFL Draft and a conditional draft pick in 2018.

Green spent the last decade with the Alouettes and will be reunited with former Montreal head coach Marc Trestman and general manager Jim Popp in Toronto.

The six-foot-two, 216-pound native of Brandon, Fla., has 444 receptions for 6,626 yards and 42 touchdowns in 116 career CFL games. The two-time Grey Cup Champion, five-time East Division All-Star and 2013 CFL All-Star eclipsed the 1,000-yard receiving mark four times with the Alouettes, with the most recent coming in 2015.

He missed most of the 2016 campaign with a knee injury.

"We are very comfortable with the progress S.J. has made rehabilitating his knee and according to his doctors he is on schedule to be ready for training camp,'' Popp said in a statement.

Durant + Salary Cap = - Green.

Is all about spreading the green on the team

A few less fins to help get to some wins

Gotta count to the dime to avoid the fine

Popp got his man who he knows don't drop

S.J. will be sure to make a play, for the man Ricky Ray

I said something like this would happen. SJ Green and his 225k a year salary dumped for a 6th round pick.

Who's next ...... Chip Cox?

The 1st 2 posts are correct. Throw in Greens Injuries the past 2 Seasons and it actually makes sense for the AL's to do this. I'm not a Kavis 13th Man Reed fan. But this difficult trade this early may turn out to be a brilliant move. There is no way that Greennis worth that kind of money at this point in time. Montreal always seems to have good depth at receiver.
Having almost over the hill chubby buddy Nik Lewis last season and again this season at the SB position is strictly for his leadership and winning attitude.
I remember when SJ Green was a practise roster player and was rotating in the odd game. You could see how good he was.
However Toronto media's attempt to introduce him to Argo fans by Highlighting Greens 2010 opening day catch in the back of the Riders end zone is ablittle out dated. The guy was 7 years younger and still trying to make a name for himself.

First two posts are incorrect. Much less to do with Durant than it does with Greens own age and salary coming off a major injury.

Wrong, Durant salary everything to do with team considerations/decisions moving forward.
