Piffles WTF – Hamilton Tiger-Cats

The guys at Piffles have evaluated every team’s free agent roster and have each picked 3 names.

  1. Want – Give me that player right now on the Riders
  2. Target – Possibly someone that Jeremy O’Day would realistically bring in
  3. Forget it – Under no circumstances does that player need to be seen in Green and White in 2020

Want: WR Mike Jones

He’s Canadian, has big play ability and has proven he has what it takes in the CFL to be a big time receiver. We still don’t really know what we have with Justin McInnis and Brayden Lenius, so having a proven threat would be great.


Target: DL Ja’Gared Davis

Davis proved himself as one of the top few D-Lineman in the league and with the uncertainty the Riders have on the D-Line heading into free agency, getting Davis would be absolutely HUGE for the green and white.


Forget It: LB Rico Murray

With the departure of Derrick Moncrief to the NFL, the SAM LB spot is WIDE OPEN for the Riders, but I wouldn’t replace him with Rico Murray. While he’s still a solid player, he’s 32 and would be a 1 year rental type player. This team has proven they can find linebackers pretty easily over the last 20 years, so I wouldn’t spend big on a free agent here.

Want: DL Ja’Gared Davis

One of the top Defensive Lineman in the league. Until we get the free agents on our line sorted out, Davis is on my list.


Target: DB Frankie Williams

Solid defenisve back and a threat to break one open every return. Would be a solid addition to any backfield.


Forget it: QB David Watford

I really don’t want to go back to having our starting DB line up under center to run our short yardage/goal line offense again.



Sheldon (@SheldonJones83)


Want: DL Ja’Gared Davis

Ja’Gared is a premier defensive lineman in the CFL and with the uncertainty of resigning Micah Johnson, Davis would at least be a lateral move inserting another one of the top 5 defensive players of the CFL


Target: LB Rico Murray 

Murray has become a solid LB in the league and the Riders might want to go cheaper and younger than Solomon Elimimian (even though I want Sol back)


Forget it: QB David Watford 

The Riders have a back up QB and they don’t need to recycle back to a former one who had trouble on short yardage here.


Greg (@GregOnSports)


Want: DL Ja’Gared Davis

I rather have him on my team than play against him. If the Riders can make the cap work and have a spot for him I don’t see how you don’t atleast kick the tires on a beast like this.


Target:  DB Frankie Williams

Williams is a threat no matter where you put him. He would shore up the secondary and could be a monster on special teams.


Forget it: DL Jamaal Westerman

Yes his passport is appealing but he will be 35 when the season starts. Sure Charleston Hughes is still performing at a high rate at age 37, but do you want to sink that much money into 2 guys when you should be looking at getting younger at the D-Line.
