CFL TEAMS UNVEIL TEN PLAYERS FROM THEIR NEGOTIATION LISTS

Teams reveal players on their negotiation lists for the second time this year

TORONTO (December 12, 2018) – The Canadian Football League (CFL) and the nine clubs have unveiled ten players from each team’s negotiation list.

This marks the second time this year ten players have been made public, with the first lists announced in February. Following the CFL winter meetings, the teams approved a measure to publicly share ten players from their negotiation lists twice a year (February and December).  

CFL by-laws state that teams can claim exclusive CFL rights to up to 45 players by placing them on their negotiation list. Players can be added, removed or traded from the list at any time.

Below are the lists of 10 players from each CFL team:
