Walter Payton Award winner Lindsey Scott Jr. headlines CFL negotiation list reveal

All nine CFL teams have each unveiled ten players from their confidential negotiation lists. Clubs are required to do so on two occasions each year – in September and December – following a measure approved at the 2018 CFL winter meetings.

League by-laws state that teams can claim exclusive CFL rights for up to 45 players by placing them on their negotiation lists. Players can be added, removed or traded from the lists at any time.

Current CFL stars who have previously been revealed as part of team negotiation lists include quarterbacks Chad Kelly, Jake Maier, and Dustin Crum; receivers Lucky Whitehead, Tim White, and Tevin Jones; defensive back Deatrick Nichols, running back Jamal Morrow, and returner Javon Leake.
