The release of McPherson ends months of speculation of whether or not the five-year veteran would enter free agency. It was expected that the 29-year-old would leave the Alouettes after Anthony Calvillo announced he'd be returning for another two seasons. In five years with the Als, McPherson has thrown 243 passes for 1,505 yards, 10 touchdowns and six interceptions.
I know the Bombers are not looking for a strong arm mobile QB type, but you cannot deny this guys talent level. And it is well known that for MacPherson he is looking for playing time, not money, and we are really the only team that can offer that (maybe Edmonton).

I was not to overly upset that the Bombers did not pay assets to acquire Reilly, but if they don't get MacPherson I will be pissed. This guy is a great talent and would completely change to dynamic of this team. He has been considered the best backup in the league for years now, he needs a shot and we need a QB. Bombers better be all over this.
