Just a quick question about training camp... All of these players that Hamilton has signed right to a 2-3 yr contract and what not and they don't make the team and are released do they get their full amount of their contract if they are released and don't make the team at training camp just curious.... Sorry if its a stupid question
No Contracts are not Guaranteed Till you make the Final Roster
No CFL contracts are technically guaranteed. If a player is released mid-season they are not paid any more money. However, a CFL veteran, depending upon his years in the league, will continue to collect his salary if released after a certain point in the season. This is why you will sometimes see veterans who are underperforming during the season released around Labour Day. That way any financial obligation by the team ends. So, as long as they are on the roster they are "guaranteed" but if released they are not.
