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.
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.
Looking at the other eight teams and what's out there and who might be available , here is my top 10 wishlist (in no particular order) of who I would like to see in a Ti-Cat uniform this season . It would be nice to sign a few of these names when FA hits tomorrow at noon ....Stay tuned !!! 8)

(@miltonatthespec) #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.?
