According to the Lions beat reporter, CFL players have ratified a clause in the new player's contract which does away with the NFL option year signing window.
This was a no-brainer considering the NFL refused to compensate CFL teams for signing players under contract. Now the NFL will have to wait until the player becomes a free agent before they can sign him.
There may be the odd player (PK Sam?) who might skip on the CFL if they can't leave after one season, but if they aren't willing to commit to the CFL for two seasons, teams should be looking for somebody else who will.[url=http://www.theprovince.com/sports/football/bc-lions/window+about+close/3199186/story.html]http://www.theprovince.com/sports/footb ... story.html[/url]
