    Eskimos sign Harris and Ellingson from Ottawa.

    Good day for the Eskimos in free agency. Multiple other additions.

    With Rhodes gone next week did this somehow free up Sunderland to do more, a greenlight of sorts. The Esks are very active in procurement today, more than ever under this management. is winning again the main thing? Have the Esks heard the fans concerns?

    its tough to lose Reilly, but this is rounding into a better club on paper.

    I didn't think I would be stating that.

    Sucks to lose Reilly but we've got some good names coming our way. Plus Rhodes will finally be gone soon.

    The moves made yesterday by Brock have me excited for this upcoming season now.

    Losing Mike hurts, no question. But we missed the playoffs last year. Changes had to be made. This is now totally Brock's team. Lots of Ed's guys are gone.

    With the poundings that Reilly has taken, we may have had his best years.
    I am in no way entitled to your opinion...

    I take back all my Sock Blunderlands ....

    Harris isn't Reilly, but he's not chopped liver either.

    Addition of Ellingston and others means our seemingly decimated receiving core as a result of NFL-bound stars is back on track.

    Bonus though - is three all-star linebackers!

    Oh, and an all-star offensive lineman.

    O.K. Brock, you get your proper name back. Well done.

    Let's hope all these signings turn into a winning team on the field this year.

    Trevor said all the REDBLACKS guys who came over are happy to be here and now consider themselves Edmonton Eskimos.

    I'm actually pumped for the season to start. And with Rhodes gone, I'm even considering buying season tickets again!

    The rumour mill is churning at full speed with news that Len Rhodes, outgoing President and CEO of the Edmonton Eskimos, is on the verge of being appointed by Jason Kenney as the United Conservative Party candidate in Edmonton-Meadows.

    Not a rumour anymore:

    Too bad for Len, (not that I have any sympathy for him). Had he run in Calgary - where his near-ruination of the once famed Eskie franchise was cheered - he'd have won in a landslide.

    True or not, this will be seen as a racist move by Kenney to put two hardworking candidates out of the mix and b) (further) proof of Kenney's disdain for the rank and file.

    Keep in mind that he's being rumoured for CEO - nothing to do with football ops.
