Piffles WTF - Montreal Alouettes

Published: Monday, Feb 10th 2020, 1:02pm

By Piffles Staff (@PifflesPod)

 

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 Chris MattewsWith Roosevelt and Arceneaux on the outs in Saskatchewan, the Riders have room for a big play maker. He won't be the #1 here, so I think that a new role would have a great effect on the team.

Target: DT Ryan Brown

Micah Johnson is likely gone, so that opens a hole in the middle of the defensive line. Brown is 25 years old and had 3 sacks and an interception last season. He could be a very solid player for a long time.

 

Forget It: RB Jeremiah Johnson

Nothing wrong with him, but time to find that next RB behind William Powell and go younger.

Want: DB Ciante Evans

One of the top DBs in the CFL – he would look great in our defensive backfield, especially when one of the DBs moves up to take Moncriefs spot.

 

Target: RB Jeremiah Johnson

That is assuming he’d come cheap as a backup RB behind William Powell, I’d love to see the Riders go after Johnson. Solid RB.

 

Forget it: WR Chris Matthews

He’s still got that Winnipeg stink on him. Decent receiver, but will likely want more money than he’d be worth in the Riders offense

 

 

Sheldon (@SheldonJones83)

 

Want: DB Chris Ackie

As a National if they moved him to LB for depth he could backup Cam Judge if the team is looking to move on from Sam Hurl  

 

Target: RB Jeremiah Johnson

With the Riders releasing Marcus Thigpen, they could look for a RB to back up

 

Forget it: EVERYBODY ELSE....WOOOF

 

 

Greg (@GregOnSports)

 

Want: DB Patrick Levels

At age 25 he was second on the Alouettes in tackles, had 5 QB sacks and 2 forced fumbles. Bring him in and move him or Purifoy to Moncrief's spot. Secondary is set.

 

Target: DB Chris Ackie

See above logic but with a Canadian passport

 

Forget it: LB Frederic Plesius

We are desperate for a LB but not "player over 30 with injury history" desperate
