It was a busy first day of CFL free agency with all nine teams involved in a number of personnel moves. Almost 50 players found new homes, which is far more than we’ve seen in recent years.

We put together a list of every personnel move to compare each club’s additions and subtractions.

Only transactions from February 11 are listed — any moves made prior to Tuesday are not reflected below. We have also not included re-signings; only players who changed teams are noted.
