Since the opening day of Canadian Football League free agency, two more Canadian natives have switched CFL franchises. Let’s take a look.

Ryan Sceviour

The native of Calgary, Alberta signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders on February 16. He has played 66 games with the Calgary Stampeders since 2016, and has recorded two solo tackles as an offensive lineman. The solo tackles came in a 20-17 Stampeders loss to the Roughriders, and on October 23, 2021 in a 22-19 Stampeders win over the Toronto Argonauts on August 20, 2022. Sceviour won a Grey Cup with the Stampeders in 2018, as Calgary beat the Ottawa Redblacks 27-16. In 2022, he was a CFL West All-Star. Sceviour played his Canadian university football at the University of Calgary for five years from 2003 to 2017, and was the Stampeders’s first round pick, eighth overall in the 2018 Canadian Football League Draft.

James Tuck 

The native of Aurora, Ontario signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on February 13. He has played 91 games in the CFL since 2016. A fullback, Tuck was with the Montreal Alouettes in 2016 and 2023, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2016, the Toronto Argonauts in 2017, the Edmonton Football Team from 2017 to 2021, and the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2022. He has one rush for five yards and 16 catches for 140 yards for his career. A Grey Cup champion with the Alouettes in 2023, Tuck was drafted out of York University in the fourth round, 31st overall in 2014 by the Alouettes.
