Sudden Impact: A team-by-team look at free agency

Johany Jutras/CFL.ca

TORONTO — There’s never a dull moment on the opening day of free agency, and when the clock struck 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, CFL teams promptly got to work on making moves to re-tool their respective rosters ahead of the 2021 season.

Micah Johnson returned to Riderville, Almondo Sewell headed East to join the Alouettes, Ciante Evans hopped on board with Hamilton, and James Wilder Jr. came out of retirement to become a member of the Edmonton Football Team.

With a handful of big names on the move this off-season already, let’s take a look at what each team has done to open the free agency window:
