Ottawa Redblacks running back Mossis Madu retires, team releases list of players making room for Arbuckle?

Today, the Ottawa Redblacks announced that they had released 10 players from the team’s roster. This announcement came just days after the team met with free agent quarterback Nick Arbuckle. Of the playedrs cut were quarterbacks Jonathon Jennings and Will Arndt, running backs Mosses Madu and Greg Morris, receiver Seth Coate, linebackers Nicholas Boulay and Jeff Knox, DB Maurice Fleming and defensive linemen Cameron Walker.

Among the list of players was Mossis Madu. Madu, the 32 year old running back has also let Marcel Desjardins hat he will be retiring from football.

Along with the retirement for Madu and the transactions the team made, it is a strong possibility that we may be calling Nick Arbuckle an Otawa Redblack very soon.  After trading for his rights a few weeks ago, the team has been making progress in signing him to a contract. Arbuckle came to Ottawa and had a visit with Marcel Desjardins to talk about what the potential contract could look like. After that visit, Marcel released 10 players which looked like he was clearing cap space for Arbuckle.

  1. This observation makes no sense and the moves today have absolutely nothing to do with Nick Arbuckle. CFL teams are allowed to carry 100 players on their roster during the off-season and players salaries only start to count against the cap once the regular season rosters are finalized and the season begins. These moves are more about releasing pending free agents who the new coaching staff concluded weren’t going to be part of the team going forward.
