#CFLFA13

After a wild first day of free agency that saw 20 players either stay put or find new homes across the CFL, days two and three saw teams continue to tinker with their rosters, hoping to find someone that prove to be an instrumental part of their lineups.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats continued to shore up their defence, signing their fifth defensive player of free agency, while the Roughriders and Eskimos added some depth on the defensive side of the ball. The Als, meanwhile, opted to bring an old friend back into the nest.


Saskatchewan Roughriders
A day after they brought in Dwight Anderson and re-signed Tyron Brackenridge, the Saskatchewan Roughriders continued to beef up their defence, signing former Eskimos DB Weldon Brown, as well as Canadian linebacker Tristan Black. The Roughriders also decided to re-sign receiver Jordan Sisco. Read More.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Day one of free agency saw the Tiger-Cats address a major need in signing Evan McCollough to help shore up their defensive backfield. Over the weekend, the Ticats continued the trend by inking former Bombers Deon Beasley and Marcellus Bowman. Hamilton also released RB Avon Cobourne. Read More.

Not sure that it's a wise strategy to be chasing a lot of FA players and getting in a bidding war for their services. This may come back to haunt the T-Cats. On the other hand, maybe not. Will be interesting to see how it plays out next season. Have to assume that K. Austin knows what he is doing.
