The gang heads back out West to Commonwealth Stadium, to make their picks from their vast list of free agent players available:

Alex (@RealAlexD):


Kwaku Boateng – Dominant defensive lineman, plus I would really prefer an Earth-Kwaku shirt in green and white not green and gold.

Mike Reilly – Do I need to explain this?

Derel Walker – Superstar receiver and also very humble person. I am a big fan of his.

Duke Williams – Like Walker, he’s a superstar receiver. We’ve only just begun seeing what this guy is capable of.

Aaron Grymes – Fantastic DB that I wish signed here when he came back from his NFL tryout. There is no need for DBs with what the Riders have now, but you can’t say no to him.


Greg (@GregOnSports):


Nathaniel Behar – Behar hasn’t become the player everyone expected. Maybe a change of scenery is needed.

Kwaku Boateng – Great young Canadian defensive lineman

Mike Reilly – The best QB in the league? You make that phone call.

Derel Walker – If you get Reilly, why not bring a friend?

Duke Williams – See above.


Stephen (@Safimod):


Bryant Mitchell – While Walker and Williams are solid receivers, Mitchell will come in cheaper with a ton of upside. Plus, I would much prefer the Bat signal shine over Mosaic Stadium (hi Kayla)

Kwaku Boateng – Great young defensive lineman, would make a great addition to our already top end DL. Imagine the ratio changes if you could start 2 really good Canadian DTs.

Mike Reilly – Best QB in the league, if you aren’t at least making the call to see what he wants, you’re GMing wrong.

Duke Wiliams – One of the best receivers in the league, and a game-changer at any given moment. If he hits free agency, 8 other teams should be calling him.

Aaron Grymes – Quality defensive back – not a position of need, but he’s worth a call for sure.


Tomorrow, we will take you back out East to Tim Horton’s Field, where the guys will mull over the list of players in Hamilton and pick their top 5.
