The Edmonton Eskimos’ potential 2020 free agent list

Photo courtesy: Scott Grant/

The Edmonton Eskimos season ended in the Eastern Final.

Head coach Jason Maas was fired less than two weeks following the loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and there will be some turnover among the players too.

It’s not the complete list (see below), but until the CFL sees fit to operate a publicly available database of contract lengths here are the Eskimos for whom I have a source indicating their contract expires. Shout out to the entire Esks team for being the class of the league in making these things known.
