The Montreal Alouettes were eliminated from the CFL playoffs on Sunday following a 23-12 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. It was a disappointing end to a season in which they started 6-4 before failing to win their first postseason game since 2014.

There are a number of questions facing the team heading into the off-season, including a possible head coaching change. One piece of good news for Als fans is that star running back William Stanback, the East Division’s Most Outstanding Player, remains under contract for 2022.

Below is the list of players who are set to become free agents in February 2022. Please note that “N” denotes nationals (ie. Canadians), “A” denotes Americans, and “G” denotes Globals.
