CFL Top Free Agents - NFL Bound?

Non-Imports | Imports | NFL Bound?

Weston Dressler
Weston Dressler 2013 Team: Saskatchewan Roughriders
2014 Team: Kansas City Chiefs (NFL)
Pos: WR Age: 28 Exp: 6
Notes: After Dressler's release from the Roughriders in late January it seemed a foregone conclusion the fan favourite would end up somewhere in the NFL. He'll hope to become the next small receiver to excel in the NFL with the Chiefs.
 
Alex Hall
Alex Hall 2013 Team: Winnipeg Blue Bombers/Saskatchewan Roughriders
2014 Team: Carolina Panthers
Pos: DE Age: 28 Exp: 2
Notes: Say what you will about the Blue Bombers, but they have a track record of finding pass rushers. Hall actually split 2013 between Winnipeg and the Saskatchewan Roughriders after the Bombers dealt the St. Augustine's product midway through the year. Hall ended what may be his last season in the CFL second in the league in sacks with 16 and a Grey Cup ring.
 
Cordarro Law
Law and Ray 2013 Team: Calgary Stampeders
2014 Team: San Diego Chargers
Pos: DE Age: 25 Exp: 2
Notes: Law's great 2013 season was overshadowed by teammate Charleston Hughes', but the second year player still finished third in the league in sacks with 14. The young pass rusher can flat out get to the quarterback and may be the next CFLer to find success coming off an edge in the NFL.
 
Nick Moore
Nick Moore 2013 Team: BC Lions
2014 Team: Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Pos: SB Age: 27 Exp: 3
Notes: Some thought Moore's breakout 2013 would land him south of the border after the Toledo product racked up 73 catches for 1,105 yards and six touchdowns, all career-highs.
 
Henoc Muamba
Ted Laurent 2013 Team: Winnipeg Blue Bombers
2014 Team: Indianapolis Colts (NFL)
Pos: LB Age: 24 Exp: 3
Notes: The lone non-import to make this category - and CIS product to boot - Muamba had a terrific 2013, finishing second in the league in tackles with 106. Muamba was rewarded by being named a CFL All-Star and the East Division nominee for Most Outstanding Canadian; he was rewarded again with an NFL contract.
 
Kory Sheets
Kory Sheets 2013 Team: Saskatchewan Roughriders
2014 Team: Oakland Raiders (NFL)
Pos: RB Age: 28 Exp: 2
Notes: Sheets was the Grey Cup hero for Saskatchewan and all Roughriders fans, but he's also so much more than that. Sheets finished the year second in rushing yards with 1,598 - the second time he's eclipsed 1,000 yards on the ground - and was named a CFL All-Star. He was overshadowed by Calgary Stampeders RB Jon Cornish, but not so much that NFL teams didn't take notice.
