Should the Ottawa REDBLACKS Sign Greg Ellingson?

It seems more and more likely that the Ticats are not going to resign free agent import slotback / receiver Greg Ellingson after two years with the Cats. With the resigning of Luke Tasker and the presence of non-import receiver Andy Fantuz, the Cats don't have a lot of money for receivers. The Cats also resigned Brandon Banks who had over 500 yards receiving last year. The Cats could potentially also resign import receiver Bakari Grant, which would really leave Ellingson as the odd man out.

Ellingson was injured a lot of 2014 and seemed to be a healthy scratch at the end of the season. Ellingson had 32 catches for 429 yards compared to a much more successful 2013 where he had 52 receptions for 800 yards. In 2013 his quarterback was Ottawa's Henry Burris. Ottawa likely has way more cap space than the Cats going into the free agency market and needs reasonable players to spend it on. Given that Ellingson has had success in the CFL, it would be worth if for the REDBLACKS to spend a little cash on.
