With the CFL season over, a number of players will use the off-season to look for opportunities south of the border and sign with NFL clubs. TSN.ca tracks all the notable CFL players working out for and signing with NFL teams. Here are the players that have been working out for NFL teams but haven't signed.

 


Willie Jefferson

NFL Workout Watch: DE Willie Jefferson

Willie Jefferson had a tremendous season in Winnipeg in 2019, being named the CFL's most outstanding defensive player, and he will hope to translate that success to the NFL, following a workout with the Dolphins. With that being his only workout thus far, is it looking more likely that he returns to Winnipeg? CFL insider Dave Naylor has more.

Position: DE    Age: 28    2019 Team: Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Notes: Jefferson turns 29 later this month and after six CFL seasons, he’s not exactly an unknown quantity. He’s not really the age for taking a player onto the practice roster nor would someone an NFL team look to develop. There may be questions about his ability to play the run in that league.

He did work out for the Miami Dolphins, but it appears that has been his only workout. – Dave Naylor

 


Cameron Judge

NFL Workout Watch: LB Cameron Judge

Roughriders linebacker Cameron Judge has worked out for the Los Angeles Chargers, but beyond that he's in a holding pattern. CFL Insider Farhan Lalji looks at how he made an impact during his first CFL season and why it's looking like he'll be back for a second next year.

Position: LB    Age: 25    2019 Team: Saskatchewan Roughriders

Notes: Judge has worked out for the Los Angeles Chargers but beyond that he remains in a bit of a holding pattern right now. There doesn’t seem to be a tremendous amount of interest in Judge among other NFL teams but there still is some time to schedule additional workouts and potentially sign a deal. – Farhan Lalji

 


Tre Roberson

NFL Workout Watch: CB Tre Roberson

Former Stampeders corner Tre Roberson has workouts scheduled with 15 NFL teams, with one wanting to sign him on the spot, but the corner has opted to complete all workouts to maximize his interest. CFL insider Dave Naylor explains where hopes to make his mark in the NFL.

Position: CB    Age: 27    2019 Team: Calgary Stampeders

Notes: Roberson has workouts scheduled with 15 NFL teams. One of them wanted to sign him on the spot following his workout but Roberson wants to maximize the interest by completing all of his workouts.

He’s a former college quarterback who transitioned to cornerback in the CFL, which along with special teams, is where he hopes to make his mark in the NFL.

Roberson is 27 but it’s clear that teams see him as someone who can come in and contribute right away. His athleticism and ball skills, and ability to block kicks on special teams, are a big part of why he’s expected to challenge William Stanback for the biggest amount of guaranteed money given to a CFL free agent this off-season. – Dave Naylor

 


Chris Streveler

NFL Workout Watch: QB Chris Streveler

Winnipeg Blue Bombers quarterback Chris Strevler has his first three NFL workouts scheduled, TSN confirmed on Tuesday. Streveler scheduled workouts with Tampa Bay, Miami and Arizona but is expected to receive more offers. TSN's Dave Naylor has more.

Notes: Streveler has his first three NFL workouts scheduled with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins, and Arizona Cardinals. There is more interest than that, and it is expected by early next week he will have some more workouts in the books. Speaking to an executive with one of the teams that’s going to work him out, the feeling is that they know what Streveler is as an athlete. They’re impressed with his physical attributes, but the question is going to be, can he throw the football well enough to play quarterback in the NFL?

There are a lot of teams in the NFL that do see him as similar to New Orleans Saints backup QB Taysom Hill, a guy who used his physical attributes and also threw the football in relief of Drew Brees in different situations this year to a lot of success. – Dave Naylor

 


Lewis Ward

NFL Workout Watch: K Lewis Ward

Ottawa Redblacks kicker Lewis Ward has had four workouts with NFL teams. CFL Insider Dave Naylor explains what might hold the kicker back from the NFL despite his excellent CFL kicking record.

Position: K    Age: 27    2019 Team: Ottawa Redblacks

 

2019 Stats

GP FGM/FGA FG% Lng
18 43/50 86 56

Notes: Ward has worked out for the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings, Cincinnati Bengals, Indianapolis Colts, and Atlanta Falcons. In his rookie season in 2018, he had one of the most remarkable kicking seasons in pro football history. Last season he demonstrated his range a little more, hitting six kicks from beyond 50 yards including a career-long 56-yarder. Still, by NFL standards, he doesn’t have a huge leg, and demonstrating that he could also handle kickoff duties could be his biggest challenge. – Dave Naylor
