We had one last Saturday and another last Sunday. Another one is happening this weekend.

Anyone with information on how many players attended or whether there were any standouts? Could name positions without revealing actual names if confidentiality is an issue.

Just curious on what we do know.

Even knowing that some of our neg list players were attending would be interesting. We wouldn't need to know which neg list players. It would just show that we're getting a real look at some of those players and they are showing interest in coming to the CFL.

The reality is that players can come and go from the list without the team ever getting them in a free agent camp.

I'm guessing that we'll see another 12 - 15 players added before the full TC. Many will come from these free agent camps. We've got about 74 players currently on the roster. Normally a few get replaced before ever seeing the TC or even some of the mini camps. Probably will include some of 2017 back ups or earlier signings.

Always interesting to see the domino effect when a new rookie is signed as roster size gets bigger. The team will have some sort of perceived depth chart on different positions even in the early going. We can only guess who is currently where.

This year we have less positions of concern IMO so I'm expecting mostly receivers, DB's and LB's to be the focus.

Not expecting too many more import OL, DL, RB or QB's to be added unless they need sheer numbers to run drills.

A chat with the scouts would be incredible. Please, if you have the time, take note of what we seem to focus on when doing our assessments.

Looks like the one in Vegas is being coordinated by McManus: https://www.bluebombers.com/free-agent-camps/
