Strong-side linebackers that remain available.
The “SAM” linebacker position is unique to the CFL. Played by a defensive back who must be able to cover in man, zone, play the run, and rush the passer.
1. Otha Foster, B.C.
Starts in 2018: 18
Key stats: 58 tackles, three sacks & two forced fumbles
Notes: Consistent veteran who help settle B.C.’s defence a season ago. Playmaker who should still have some game.
2. Maurice Leggett, WPG
Starts in 2018: 8
Key stats: 33 tackles & one sack
Notes: Was among the CFL’s top defensive playmakers as recently two years ago but an Achilles tear from October 2017 has put his career in jeopardy.
