Canadian Football League Free Agency: February 14

Probably one of the most misunderstood aspects of NFL Free Agency is when certain players can be signed. However, the Kansas City Chiefs have repeatedly shown their understanding of these dates. That is especially true of when they are able to sign free agents from the Canadian Football League.

Over the past few years, GM John Dorsey has shown a willingness to give opportunities to players north of the border. Most notably, that occurred in 2014 when the Chiefs signed star CFL receiver Weston Dressler. Of course, Dressler would fail to make the Chiefs roster out of Training Camp, but the move cemented Dorsey’s reputation as a “no stone unturned” GM.

In fact, the Kansas City Chiefs would try again with the CFL in 2016 by targeting receiver Duron Carter. The former Ohio State player, and son of NFL Hall of Famer Chris Carter, ended up not signing with the Chiefs. However, the interest in Carter further shows how the Chiefs value the importance of scouting every avenue. That means dates like this are important.
