- Free Agency
With CFL Free Agency in full swing, the REDBLACKS were getting some heat for not making any signings…

Fortunately for Warren, the club was quick to react and ensured they locked in their franchise mascot to a long term deal. There was a rumor he had spoken to multiple teams about a contract, even a late push by the potential Halifax franchise couldn’t pull Big Joe away from the Nation’s Capital.

It was a tough negotiation knowing I was gonna be a free agent next yr. @REDBLACKSGM had an offer from the Green Riders to swap me for Gainer & a bag off kicking tees. Marcel threw in a fresh pair of suspenders per season and that sealed the deal to keep me in da Capital!

A smart signing we would say, but with the lifetime contract now on the table it looks like The Buds have some ideas…

If we were Ottawa we’d be MAKING THIS HAPPEN ASAP!
