Nichols is not a free agent. He is signed through the 2019 season. All 3 Bombers QB's are under contract for next year, there's likely no change in Winnipeg in the names on the depth chart. It is very possible Streveler passes Nichols on the depth chart sometime next year as early as training camp though. It's hard to project the QB's around the league right now though I agree. Particularly with the CBA problems right now no answers are coming soon. Nichols is the only real starter signed for next year with his team, but I'm guessing Harris in Ottawa and Masoli in Hamilton are back next year. Montreal gave up too much to give up on Manziel just yet so they probably lose another 5-6 straight next year to start the year with him there as a starter. It's completely up in the air what happens in BC, CGY, EDM, SSK, TOR. That's five teams for 1 great QB (Reilly), 2 reclamation projects (Jennings, Collaros) and 2 HUGE maybe's that have shown flashes but overall not great (Bridge, Bethel-Thompson). Toronto and BC might have to fall back on Franklin and Lulay respectively.
