CFL free agency starts Tuesday, February 13 at 12:00 noon ET.

I started a thread like this in 2016 and it went to 38 pages and >50,000 views.  Didn't start one last year and we signed, like, one guy.  So in the interests of karma, here's a thread to post any and all news about free agent signings.

A few useful links:

I think the team will get a couple names signed tomorrow.
SAM LB is an area of need. I also would love to see a kicker signed. There are quite a few options
Hajrullahu is a dandy and from St Catharines
VanGylswyk is a guy a lot of forum members wanted drafted a couple of seasons back
Brett Maher, Swayze or Boris Bede are all options too.

Tasker is back to the Hammer for 2 years.

God I hope not. At least Big Teddy has done something in pro football and in the CFL.  Give him what he wants and forget Manziel.

#Ticats Luke Tasker said today that potential free agents do pay close attention to #CFL pre-free-agency signings and are well aware that cap spaces dwindle. But adds that true cap-room info is "hard to come by."

Tasker signed before CFL free agency opens Tuesday and acknowledged that, “You can’t ever tell what you’re worth unless you hit the market but I can say I’m very happy with the contract that we struck. It’s a pay raise from last year (when he was believed to make $150,000), I can promise you that. I wouldn’t call it a hometown discount: it’s a contract that we’re happy with.”


Notes: Kent Austin on pending free agent Andy Fantuz: “The door’s not shut with Andy right now. We’re talking. But he’s like other free agents, we’re trying to piece the whole puzzle together.”

I wonder if we will magically get some 12:01 signings announced, you know all you need is 1 minute to negotiate a deal with a FA.

Better known as an Ed Hervey Special . ;D Let's see if he can beat his record of a few years back when he signed Odelle Willis away from Saskatchewan in the first 30 seconds of the FA deadline .
