The off-season is officially underway for the Ottawa Redblacks following a disappointing 3-11 season that found them at the bottom of the East Division.

The Redblacks have already re-signed a number of familiar faces, including running back Brendan Gillanders, defensive lineman Nigel Romick, linebacker Avery Williams, defensive backs Justin Howell, Brandin Dandridge, and Sherrod Baltimore, kicker Lewis Ward, punter Richie Leone, and return specialist DeVonte Dedmon.

There are still a number of free agents set to come available in February unless they are re-signed. Please note that “N” denotes nationals (ie. Canadians) and “A” denotes Americans.
