The Toronto Argonauts capped their season off by upsetting the two-time reigning Grey Cup champions in Regina to win this year’s CFL title.

The club’s free agent list isn’t as long as some other teams, though it contains a few marquee names. McLeod Bethel-Thompson, who could possibly retire, is a pending free agent, as are a number of players on the defensive side of the ball. Another name to keep an eye on is Andrew Harris, who indicated that he could retire after winning the Grey Cup for a fourth time.

Below is every player who is currently slated to reach free agency for the Argonauts in February 2023.
