Top 50 CFL free agents: day two

Day one of free agency was a whirlwind with almost 50 players changing teams in less than twelve hours.

We started off Tuesday’s free agent period at 12 noon ET with a top 50 free agents list, so we though we would do the same for day two.

Two of our original top-ten talents remain, while some previously unranked players have found their way onto the board.

1) REC Derel Walker, Toronto Argonauts (A)

The 28-year-old went underused in 2019 but still managed 65 receptions for 1,040 yards and six touchdowns. When healthy — and used properly — Walker is arguably the best receiver in the CFL.

2) SAM Patrick Levels, Montreal Alouettes (A)

The East Division all-star played all 18 games at strong-side linebacker last season, recording 86 tackles, five sacks, and two forced fumbles. The 25-year-old covers well and plays well above his weight as a run stopper and pass rusher.

3) REC DeVier Posey, Free Agent (A)

The 29-year-old is one of the top deep threats in the CFL. One of last year’s free agent prizes, Posey recorded 780 yards on 50 receptions in 12 games with the Alouettes in 2019.

4) SAM Anthony Cioffi, Ottawa Redblacks (A)
