teams don't have the roster size to keep anyone who cannot contribute hoping they will return to form. A few of our top CDN draft eligible players signed a training camp contract with NFL teams. Problem for them, even if they are good they won't be given a chance and will be released in most cases. There are just too many players competing for too few spots.
Agents must already be in touch with CFL clubs regarding a "what if scenario" for their clients. CFL clubs have their rosters set so there won't be very many brought in for a look. By Sept 3rd the player market will be flooded with players. 90 camp bodies cut down to 53. There will be enough players released to stock 3 Canadian Football Leagues along with the 16000+ draft eligible players from last years NCAA football graduating class that have no where to go.
All CFL teams are cheating the roster limits so during next CBA rosters should increase.
