Wow! Thank you for posting this.

The Cats could take a real hit a Receiver this off-season.

Thanks for the info good fan Grover. :thup:

Okay , after looking over the FA list I've made a preliminary projection for who I think we will re-sign , who will get offered a contract or not and who we might and possibly might not let go in FA. So Yeses are hopefully re-signed . No's are predicted to be let go and Undecided are basically on the bubble or fence depending on how the team decides to go in a number of different areas (ie: ratio issues/ FA's signed from other teams/ injury history of player / depth at position etc. etc.)

Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Johnny Adams, DB, International Undecided ?
Giovanni Aprile, WR, National NO
John Chiles, WR, International Undecided ?
Matt Coates, WR, National Undecided ?
Michael Daly, DB, National YES
Emanuel Davis, DB, InternationalYES
Kevin Elliott, WR, International YES
Andy Fantuz, WR, NationalYES
Xavier Fulton, OL, InternationalUndecided-Possible retire or re-sign Sask.
Jacory Harris, QB, International NO
Shane Herbert, DB, National Undecided ?
Beau Landry, LB, National YES
Kendial Lawrence, WR, International NO
Brett Maher, K, International Undecided ?
Jeff Matthews, QB, International Undecided ?
Rico Murray, DB, International YES
Drake Nevis, DL, International YES
Ron Omara, LB, National YES
Chad Owens, SB, InternationaUndecided ?
Cleshawn Page, DB, International YES
Keon Raymond, LB, International Undecided ?
Landon Rice, OL, National YES
Louie Richardson, DL, National NO
Jermaine Robinson, DB, International Undecided ?
Da’Rel Scott, RB, International NO
Johnny Sears, DB, International NO
Terrence Toliver, WR, InternationalUndecided-possible NFL ???
Anthony Woodson, RB, NationalUndecided ?

From your list of decisions I would alter the following:
Chiles -yes
Coates-yes
Lawrence-undecided
Maher-yes, but bring in competition
Toliver- sign him now!

Keon Raymond - YES

The Official list was released by the CFL today

here it is

http://www.cfl.ca/fa17/

BTW - CFL Free Agency starts Tuesday February 14th at Noon ET, Valentine’s Day, How fitting.

Sign Emanuel Davis! NOW!

Paredes and Medlock are available. One National and one International

Here is a nice breakdown of what happened FA wise for the Cats last season.

We had 37 FA's, By far the most of any team
14 were extended or re-signed
12 signed elsewhere
2 signed NFL
9 not signed anywhere

[url=http://3downnation.com/2016/12/01/pending-cfl-free-agents-never-hit-market-go/]http://3downnation.com/2016/12/01/pendi ... market-go/[/url]

Note - Collaros new contract kicks in this season, making him the highest paid player in the League @ $520K
Up from $275K last year, that is an extra $245K hit to the Cap this year

I'd be shocked if they re-sign Jacory Harris. He has never really done anything in real action when given the chance.

Speaking of which, I wish we could have watched Golson play in the last regular season game. Would like to have seen what he can do.

I want us to get Van Zeyl at OT really really badly. He's a good player and will add more Canadian Beef to the O-Line.
Certified Angus man.

After comparing the CFL list with the TSN list, every team's list is a bit different except for the TiCats, listing the same 28 players on both. They're second only to the RedBlacks with 31. The Bombers have the fewest with 21. It appears the TSN list included several players who are not due to be free agents in February because they are already free agents, having been released earlier by their last teams.

Andy Fantuz, WR, NationalYES
According to 3 Down Nation, Fantuz is unlikely to play in 2017. Do you really want to sign a guy that is unlikely to play next season?

Yes, because his salary would not count against the salary cap. Especially for a guy like Andy.

And I know that this goes against my posting history of a year ago, but he had a heck of a season.

Full Recovery time for the Fantuz injury is from 9 months to 12 months.

He had his operation the 2nd week of November.
He could be back by the 2nd week of August

The TiCats kept Butler on LTIR for all of last season after his operation

http://3downnation.com/2016/03/23/15687/

The only difference between Olsen/Butler and Fantuz, is that the former were NOT free agents after the 2015 season, ie: they were still rostered players.

True, but they did restructure his contract when they could have cut him and walked away
And I am also sure that the TiCats and Caretaker have paid for Andy's operation and will pay for his rehab like they did with Norwood until he was released in May, they couldn't carry both Butler and Norwood on the LTIR
