Title: Riders Sign Gauthier

A good pickup for the Riders as we really need the help on the offensive line.

I'm a little surprised that there wasn't more reported interest in Gauthier, as well as Archibald.  There are a few teams set at the LT position, but many more that are not.  Neither guy was going to be cheap, and Gauthier's no spring chicken, but employing a very capable NI at the LT position is a nice use of O'Day's salary (and then some) by the Riders.

I would think that Archibald will be announced in BC early this week and haven't heard any reports linking him to any other team.  They've had a relatively revolving door ever since the loss of Rob Murphy.  Import or not, you have to think grabbing last year's top OL is a big addition for the Lions.
