CFL.ca Staff

TORONTO — Thursday June 24 was cut-down day in the CFL. It was a busy day across the league, highlighted by a pair of trades made by the Toronto Argonauts. On Thursday morning, the Argos finalized a trade with the Montreal Alouettes to acquire WR/RS Chad Owens in exchange for a fourth round pick in the 2011 CFL Canadian Draft.

In the afternoon, the Argos worked a deal with another Eastern Division rival.
