Saskatchewan Roughriders are running for quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell, by sources.
It has become a three-race for Mitchell between Calgary Stampeders, Toronto Argonauts and Riders. The stamps encountered their offer last night while Argos presented Mitchell with a big offer after the free agency had kicked off.
Team President Craig Reynolds and General Manager Jeremy O & # 39; Day have created an offer to try to convince Mitchell to play in Regina.
Mitchell has a winning pedigree: his 69-15-2 regular season win loss record and 802 winning percentage is the top mark in CFL history. He has two Gray Cup wins and two CFL MOP awards.
According to sources, Saskatchewan's ideal scenario at football's most important position is Riders who want to show Mitchell the benefits of playing in Riderville. The organization could pull out all ending up in an attempt to sell Mitchell and his family playing in Green and White.
The riders would try to soar Mitchell and gain the benefits of being the franchise responsibility – particularly the pursuit of career when Mitchell could earn revenue in various ways long after the days of the football field. Combined with the benefits of playing in a state-of-the-art rabid fan base.
Rider's top two quarterbacks made nearly $ 600,000 in combined pay last season with Zach Collaros earning $ 430,000 while Brandon Bridge raised over $ 160,000. To commit all these dollars to a single player could put the riders and then some would place the riders in Mitchell's monetary territory: $ 750,000. Financially, the riders can present a competitive offer.
