RIDERS DEAL COLLINS TO TICATS


Ricky Collins
The Saskatchewan Roughriders have acquired international defensive lineman Mike McAdoo and a sixth-round selection in the 2018 CFL Draft from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.  

In exchange, the Riders sent international wide receiver Ricky Collins and a seventh-round selection in the 2018 CFL Draft to the Ti-Cats.  

McAdoo (6’7 – 250) has spent the last two weeks on the Tiger-Cats practice roster after signing with the team August 7th.

The University of North Carolina product has had previous stints with the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys since turning pro in 2011.

A 27-year-old Tennessee native, McAdoo also played two games for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2013, registering one tackle and one quarterback sack.

Lord knows we need a DE. Other than the last game Jones the coach's big experiment with A.C. Leonard has been a failure but I'm not so sure that a guy that played two CFL games in 2013 is the answer. Now that Collins is gone just watch the receivers get dinged up. Jones the GM got fleeced again.

Not a fan of this trade. I loved Collins and Craig last year. Both gave everything they had for our team. We could have done better with Grant going East.

If I am reading the Rider press release correctly, DE Mike McAdoo was on the Ti-Cats practice Roster. If that was the case, the Riders could have just offered McAdoo a roster spot and would not have to give anything up. Granted McAdoo could have turned down the offer, but who would not jump at the opportunity to leave Hamilton.

The Riders still have plenty of receivers, both national and international, so they were dealing from a position of strength, but the question remains, why did they have to give up anything when they did not need to.

What National receivers "position of strength" are you talking about - Bagg who's hardly been used, Demski maybe, but Radford & Bailey??? Edmonton has 5 experienced Nationals & Behar, Calgary has 4 veteran Nationals & 1 rookie. The Nationals on those 2 clubs are big guys. Our National content @ receiver is maybe better than Wpg but it's not great. As for the imports, what happens if we get injuries to Roosevelt, Carter & Grant like the Eskimos have to Bowman, Zylstra & Hazleton. Beyond Holley there's not much. So we're 1 or 2 injuries away to our receivers to being in a lot of trouble. Edmonton loses their top 3 & bring in Mitchell, Williams & Stafford. Their 4th & 5th stringers, Mitchell & Williams, have had 5 100 yard games between them whereas our top 3 guys have one 100 yard game each. You find out what depth you have when there are injuries & if we had our top 2 or 3 go out, it would expose how little depth we have. In my view, a horrible trade. Riders better hope as the season goes on they don't start losing guys. It can happen - remember Roosevelt played 11 games last year before going out. We can ill afford injuries.

We got fleeced again. Quit giving up Canadians. You can't give up draft selections for American players. In the last two deals we gave up four Canadians and get a fifth round back. I realize this administration sucks at drafting quality players but keep all the selections you can. The better the Canadian talent the better the team.

Maybe Owens is ready?

Jones got fleeced on this deal. He didn't need a terrible trade to counter a great win. This deal sound like one Holland in Detroit would make. 2 3rd rounders and a quality player for a practise roster player with no game experience in 3 years. Jones has spent good money on players who haven't played in a long time. The 3 managers and the scouting staff have done one terrible job since coming here. Hard to keep saying in Jones we trust when he keeps doing stupid things like this!

Why would you give up a draft pick and a bona fide starter for a career practice roster player? Bad trade. Another bad trade. The Riders are only a couple of injuries away from needing Collins. As for Chad Owens; I really liked Chad Owens, five years ago. Collins also did returns if needed.

RELAX people. Collins is injury prone and we have Antwane Grant and Chad Owens around. Also, the last round of NFL cuts is right around the corner, so there will American talent aplenty available. Christion Jones, Greg Morris, Demski and Owens can handle the return duties just fine.

Rod, was the Collins trade solely to make room for Adams and Owens.

Like will this new mcadoo even play?

Hahaha love the armchair GM's comments. Collins was injured most of 2016. Played 1 game in Montreal until he was injured (again)and placed on the 6 game. He is a very good receiver but doesn't help the team sitting on the sidelines.
The Rider have 9 receivers left including Owens and 2 practice rosters.The problem is the Fans are so used to seeing the same players on the field regardless of how the perform. Jones is trading and shuffling the deck to get the best possible combinations. I for one like that. Results are starting to appear. Go Riders.

It still remains that they gave up a draft pick. The trade as is, they could have got a draft pick without giving one up. Always stock pile draft picks.

And you would know?.....because? You are a fan who knows everything right!

Collins was probably coming off the 6 game and no room for him on the Pr or active roster. Goodplayer but injury prone. We are stocked with receivers and returners. Christian Jones has capably handled the returns, is an RB and a WR and quite versatile. Riders may be short on the D Line stuff. Greg Morris has also capably handled the returns. I say everyone take a pill.

Owens was injured last year and has been on the injury list until now this year. Why not get rid of a injury prone old receiver slash returner with a 115000 salary. Named Owens and keep a younger cheaper Collins. That would make more sense and save money. Quit handing out draft picks.

Steve from Victoria, People need to read the whole article. The Riders traded Collins and a 7th round pick for MaCadoo and a 6th round pick. I think a 6th round pick has more value than a 7th round pick!

Your comments are also armchair GM opinions. The big DE is Jones' body type but has been banging around for several years without finding a starting job with some not such good teams. A career practice roster player . Jones' trades up to now, for the most part have been laughable, very few sticking with the team. This smells the same.

And the revolving door just keeps spinning.

Is this McAdoo related to our OC coach?
