CKNW has learned that CFL Rookie of the year and defensive player of the year Cameron Wake is trying to get out of his contract with the Lions. Wake led the CFL with 15 sacks and was the top defensive lineman in the country.
He has one year plus an option left on his contract, and is attracting NFL interest. His agent has found a technicality in his contract after consulting with the CFLPA.
The Players Association has told Wake that if he wants to go to arbitration. He has to pay his own way.
Wake can not go to the NFL under the current collective bargaining agreement until after next season.
Lions coach and GM Wally Buono and Wake’s agent held long talks yesterday that were classified as positive.
The CFLPA finds a loop hole! :roll: :roll:
