CFL.ca's Top 10 free agent signings | CFL.ca | Official Site of the Canadian Football League
 


Chris Milo, Kicker
Re-Signed with Saskatchewan
There's no downside to having a consistent kicker on your side, making Brendan Taman's decision to re-sign his
nearly-automatic Canadian a smart and easy one.


Jovon Johnson, Cornerback
Signed with Ottawa
Having a proven, veteran presence on the defensive side of the ball will help the young REDBLACKS move through
any growing pains that can arise during an expansion year.


Cary Koch, Wide Receiver
Signed with Hamilton
You can never have enough depth at any position, so it comes as no surprise to see the Ticats add to an already
deep group of receivers by signing Koch.


Pat Watkins, Defensive Back
Signed with Edmonton
New Eskimos head coach Chris Jones made it a priority to grab one of his most dangerous assets from his time as the Argos' defensive coordinator. Watkins will certainly boost an Edmonton defence that ranked last in the West with 15 interceptions.


Craig Butler, Safety
Signed with Hamilton
Kent Austin has already said he plans on using Butler at safety, meaning he'll return to the position he started his
career at. A solid Canadian signing by the Ticats.


Nick Moore, Receiver
Signed with Winnipeg
Even before the retirement of Terrence Edwards, Moore's arrival in Winnipeg was a big one. Does he become their
new number one target effective immediately?


Shea Emry, Linebacker
Signed with Toronto
Emry automatically improves the calibre of Toronto's front seven. Look for him to shine brightly in new defensive
coordinator Tim Burke's defence.


Zach Collaros, Quarterback
Signed with Hamilton
He entered the market a little early, but he didn't last long, as he was almost immediately scooped up by Austin's
Tiger-Cats. He'll be the focal point of a young and rising Hamilton offence.


Josh Bourke, Offensive Lineman
Re-Signed with Montreal
There was some chatter that Bourke would opt to leave Montreal after seven seasons, but the Alouettes showed
how important he was to their franchise, re-signing him to a new two-year deal.


Henry Burris, Quarterback
Signed with Ottawa
The arrival of Collaros in Hamilton made the 38-year-old expendable, thus placing him in the free agency pool a
little earlier than expected. He'll start in Ottawa, giving them some sure-fire experience under centre right away.

"He'll start in Ottawa, giving them some sure-fire experience under centre right away."

Along with many sure-fire interceptions and sure-fire losses that are solely his fault. Love the guy as a person but it baffles me someone with so much experience still makes high school QB mistakes every game.

If these guys think Burris is the #1 signing, I have some swampland in Florida to sell them.

Henry Burris #1? Jovon Johnson #9? Don't you have people who actually watch CFL games to help you rank players?
