Sudden Impact: A team by team look at free agency

Patrick Doyle/CFL.ca

TORONTO — When the clock struck noon on February 13, the first wave of free agency washed across the league and it had no shortage of exciting moves.

One of CFL.ca’s top free agents, Roy Finch, is staying in Calgary with Stampeders and a few Winnipeg-born players, Nic Demski and Kienan LaFrance, found their way home to the Blue Bombers.

With that and much more happening around the league over the first two days of free agency, here’s a look what what each team has done so far:

Jump to team:

BC | Calgary | Edmonton | Saskatchewan | Winnipeg | Hamilton | Toronto | Ottawa | Montreal
