Discussion in 'Calgary Stampeders Talk' started by Madman, Feb 9, 2015.
Some great info on our pending Free Agents.
Thanks to News Talk 770 for the insight.
Some new insight from Scott Mitchell.
A lot of depth sometimes comes with the price of losing some players to Free Agency, going to a team that they can get onto the field more seems to be the theme for those not re-signing in Calgary as of yet.
It also comes down to just dollar and cents.
Sinopoli and Calgary not on the same page dollars wise simply because there is only so much money in the cap.
There was another tweet I saw that has reported that Ottawa will make lucrative offers to Sinopoli and Stanley Bryant.
As noted with Bryant leaving Harrison would be likely to re-sign. In 2010 he came to the stamps after 2 years on NFL TC and PRs and started 15 games at RT. In 2011 and 2013 he spent the first half of each season on the 9 game IR. 2011 came off and started 9 games at LT. '13 came off and played the remainder of the season. 2012 started 8 games at LT but missed several games with mid season injury.
2014 Was on the 46 man roster for almost the entire season but only dressed for 4 games starting 3. was a scratch for 12 games and the post season as well.
MacDougall should get a good amount of interest including from his home province Riders. Adding WillLB to his resume as well as safety. Also definitely a special Teams player, but more specifically I beleive he was the gunner for the stamps last season. With WillLB starter Peter hitting the market. As well the Riders really had no Nationals as part of their secondary. Woldu was listed as a CB but at this stage of his career he is exclusively a Teams player. in 2012 the Riders had both Butler starting as WillLB and Newman packaged in at Safety that allowed the Riders to move T' Brak around on defense. MacDougall whether winning a starting WillLB spot would still be likely to see a lot of time packaged in on defense.
In a TSN interview in January Asst GM John Murphy indicated that '14 number 1 overall pick Lavertu is more than ready to step in at C with Jones likely not returning.

Coach Hufnagel addresses the media ahead of 2015 free agency.
Sounds like the football team is going to look a little different by Friday.
Now we get to see the magic of Murphy kick in and find some gems!
