    2014 Free Agent Forecast: Calgary Stampeders
    CFL.ca

    As Tuesday's free agency deadline nears, CFL.ca is breaking down each team’s potential needs, wants and wish lists. Today we take a look at the Calgary Stampeders.

    If free agency is supposed to be the busiest day of the off-season, someone better notify John Hufnagel. The Stamps’ general manager and head coach has been chipping away at his rather lengthy list of potential FAs all off-season. A total of 10 extensions have been granted to those who will remain in Red and White.

    For the most part, the Stamps are in pretty good shape heading into Tuesday even if they don’t make any more signings before their players hit the market. Ideally, inking defensive lineman Cordarro Law would make life a lot easier for the Stampeders brass so they can shift their focus to potentially signing from the pool.

    Calgary Stampeders' Hufnagel not expecting to make splash in CFL’s open market
    The only type of big splash John Hufnagel enjoys is an escape attempt by a largemouth bass.
    Free-agent splashes just aren’t his thing.
    When CFL free agency opens up Tuesday at 10 a.m., the Calgary Stampeders architect will likely be found perusing the bargain bins — you know, the marked-down special-teamers, undersized linemen and the non-import role players residing in between the high-priced stars eight other franchises will likely be checking into the moment the bell sounds.
    That means fans hoping to see one of the big fish landing in Hufnagel’s boat — Montreal Alouettes offensive lineman Josh Bourke, Edmonton Eskimos defensive lineman Ted Laurent and Toronto Argonauts cornerback Patrick Watkins would be among that group — shouldn’t hold their breath. It’s just not Hufnagel’s modus operandi.
    “I think it’s very good,” Hufnagel said of the free-agent market. “There’s a lot of good players out there, but my philosophy about free agency isn’t any different than it has been in the years before.
