Each CFL team can carry a maximum of 75 players on its roster during the off-season. With a current roster of 71 players, the Ticats can sign four more players without having to release anybody.
As CFL teams approach training camp, it will get very interesting. Each team can only have 68 players plus current year Canadian draft choices on its roster by the first day of training camp. For example, if training camp started tomorrow, the Ticats would have to release three players to get to the 68 player limit.
One other point of interest is that, several weeks ago, Ken Peters of the Hamilton Spectator reported that this year, for the first time ever, the Ticats will probably hold a rookie camp one week prior to the start of the regular training camp. This would seem to be a "mini-version" of the pre-camp training and selection process used in the NFL. One would guess that a few releases will occur at the end of the rookie camp to pare the roster down to 68 players plus draft choices for the first day of the regular training camp.
