I wonder what the issue was with Biggie's contract?

Thanks for posting that Bosco.

Farhan offers some insight about it here. Nothing egregious IMO. No cap violation or anything.

#BCLions fined $2500 for verbally agreeing to give @Bighill44 a window to explore #NFL opportunities (& putting it in a press release) #CFL

Please sell the team, Mr. Braley.

Better explanation here:
Rick Dhaliwal‏ @DhaliwalSports 1h1 hour ago

(1) If he did not sign in the NFL, the #BCLions had a signed contract to bring Adam Bighill back on the roster on an assigned date.

(2) This signing did not make Bighill a true free agent in the CFL's eyes. #BCLions .

Jennings is under contract to the Lions until the end of 2018, but doesn't Jennings have a window of oppourtunity after 2017 to seek NFL tryouts and then return to the Lions only if no NFL contract offer happens? This sounds similar to Bighill's deal. :dizzy:
