The Edmonton Elks are on a bye this week after finishing their regular season schedule with a 4-14 record and missing the playoffs for a second straight year.

With a critical off-season ahead of them, it’s time to look at which players are set to hit free agency in February 2023. This will be the first installment in a series of articles outlining the pending free agents for each CFL team as the regular season comes to a close this week.

Edmonton has already been hard at work signing a number of players to extensions, including quarterback Taylor Cornelius, receiver Dillon Mitchell, offensive lineman Jesse Gibbon, and defensive back Scott Hutter. Below are those who have yet to be re-signed.
