Almost Everyone Is a Free Agent

Look at this list of FAs in Ottawa this offseason. I guess that's a positive in that they need to bring in some better players. I wonder what the roster will look like come May.

Below is every player in Ottawa who is currently slated to reach free agency in February 2023 unless they are signed to an extension before then.

Please note that “N” denotes nationals (ie. Canadians), “A” denotes Americans, and “G” denotes Globals.

Would have been easier to list who they actually have under contract next year. Looks like they'll be building a team around Masoli & Acklin. They better get on signing some of these guys, there are definitely some keepers in the above list.

Yes, I'm hoping they get Mauldin back, for one. But he--and others--should be highly soughtafter by better teams.

I'm sure hoping Masoli can return to form in 2023.

me too bro. when masoli was throwing to tasker and banks that was magic. I want to see him get tat magic back

Ottawa has a few studs. Mauldin and the linebacker Williams and some good recievers.

On paper a half decent team. The Masoli injury set them back a bit but when I was watching them I always thought they were on the cusp of winning some games which I think boiled down to coaching
