    Props to those of you who called it. I thought it was mere speculation. I guess I shouldn't doubt your sources.

    I just loathe idle speculation - especially when its right!!! lol

    As for Baggs, he's a special player, mostly the 30 to 35% of his reps he goes full bore!

    Rider fans are trashing him, of course. It's expected.

    I'm assuming Hamilton no longer had his rights, otherwise they'd have snapped him up given their defensive woes this season.

    I'm just a little confused as to why they don't still have his rights? Maybe Rids can explain the rules around that to me.

    He was a FA from what I understand which is why he didn't go back to Hamilton.

    I thought this was all related to the trade of Torrey Davis to Hamilton for "future considerations." No?

    He was apparently released by Hamilton in the off-season, with rumors that he was asked to restructure his contract.

    http://cfl.ca/article/curtain-call-tica ... evie-baggs

    Unless a player is a free agent, I had thought the last CFL team they played for retains their rights. But I'm not sure now, and there's something about a player being a veteran that is a also a factor in their status. It's confusing, which is why I thought Rids might know.

    Nope. I thought so too. But the Baggs signing is a separate deal. The Torre Davis deal for "future considerations" has to be someone on Hamilton's neg list.

    Rider fans are saying he is washed up & has been since he left Saskatchewan. It will be interesting to see how he plays in the West against his former team... Looking forward to it.
