Meh, he can be replaced. Whitaker can get the job done.

ALS signed all-star DB Dwight Anderson.

Cobourne seemed pissed on his twitter lol.

Ahmed Green should be good to take Cobornes place. He wanted too much money...

Hopefully Green fixed the fumbling problem he had in GB.

Whitaker could be solid - also wouldn't be surprised if the Als went out and signed Yvenson Bernard from the Bombers, if money permits it.

I'd like to see them re-sign Guzman, but I think he's looking for a starting job where he doesn't have to rotate.

Meanwhile, Dwight Anderson's a solid pickup

Tad Crawford also signed. Mathieu Proulx will most likely retire.

No worries, if Ahman Green doesn't pan out then Whitaker(or someone else) will be fine. They got the best free agent anyway in Dwight Anderson, don't worry about missing Avon's trash talk either, Anderson is the master!

I wasn't impressed by Whitaker at all last year, hopefully Green can git'r dun. Popp rarely disappoints though.

Best news is that Duval will gtfo. He brings choke to a whole new level. Ugh I still can't forget his 10 yard punts and his body language on that fake punt in the Grey Cup.

I think that it's a big loss for the Als. It won't be so easy to replace Cobourne because he wasn't only good at running the ball, he was also good at catching and at blocking. He was almost an extra OL on some passing plays.

I know we currently have A.Green, Diedrick and Whitaker. I know Green was a NFL all-star but he is old, he had quite a few injuries and hasn't played much football in the past couple 2-3 years. Diedrick is a decent backup but he isn't a n.1 back. Whitaker has talent but he has only played maybe 4-5 games in the CFL (most of this games didn't mean anything). We'll see if he his able to handle a complete season as the starting RB.

The battle for the n.1 running back spot will surely be interesting to follow next camp.

I still predict a threepeat to end the dynasty.

Watch every game this season because I think we're in for a ****** decade compare to what we had the past 10 years once Calvillo & Trestman are done.The last few years the Als were probably the greatest offensive football the LCF has ever seen.

Well its not THAT HUUUGE of a loss, we lost a 32 yr old 5"8 running back for a NFL experienced 34 yr old, .. yeah coburn did have some hands and blocked decently

but were a passing team ANYway, either the play action works, or ahman green breaks through, or whitaker comes into his own

i like the move, + we got a GREAT cornerback today, which rly seemed to be the only problem on our great D last year

Duval is incredible. He does everything well until the damn final where he can barely walk straight.

Kicker is obviously a pretty mentally intense position, and Duval just did not have the nerves to keep steady during big games. It's tough but you can't keep a guy around who can't play in a championship when a less skilled kicker whos head was on straight would've done a much better job. Duval was married to Larry Smith's daughter so when Smith left you could see he was gone too after that performance.
