    Good timing as I'm sure his bonus now counts against the 2013 salary cap.

    Calgary Stampeders star Juwan Simpson won't test market
    Juwan Simpson has a calendar, so he could see the carrot dangling in front of him.
    In the households of many players around the CFL, Feb. 15 is circled.
    But the Calgary Stampeders’ veteran middle linebacker didn’t see the need to test the free-agent market — which will open for business on that day in a little more than a month — instead officially re-signing with the only CFL franchise he has ever known Friday.

    Plus got a signing bonus with the Stampeders which applied in 2013 that (for that reason) would not have been available had he signed elsewhere...;)
