The news keeps coming hot and heavy for the Grey Cup Champion Toronto Argonauts as the club announces yet another signing of a pending free agent. This time, the Argos have re-upped with veteran receiver DaVaris Daniels. The sixth starter from last season to run it back with Double Blue in the last couple of days.
Earlier in the day, The Boatmen announced that they had brought back DaShaun Amos for the 2023 season. In the last 48 hours, Toronto has also re-signed LB Wynton McManis, DB Royce Metchie, kicker Boris Bede, and WR Kurleigh Gittens Jr.
DaVaris Daniels rejoins Double Blue for a third consecutive season. Daniels is one of the Argos’ steadiest players. A year ago, Daniels caught a career-high 61 passes for 860 yards and four touchdowns. He was one of the top players head coach Ryan Dinwiddie brought over with him to the six from Calgary in 2020.
Daniels has been a key figure in the stabilization of Toronto’s franchise over the last two seasons. He’ll be back working alongside his pass-catching partner, Kurleigh Gittens, who has grown up a lot playing with the reliable veteran.
On a day when the negotiation window has opened for all pending CFL free agents. The Argos continue to keep their championship core intact. They’ve re-signed 12 players from the championship squad.
And then there were 14; the Argonauts started this process with 26 pending free agents. However, that list continues to be whittled down significantly. Thanks to the stellar work of General Manager Michael ‘Pinball’ Clemons, Vince Magri, and a terrific support staff.
The remaining Argos’ free agents are as follows: For those keeping score at home.
QB: McLeod Bethel Thompson, RB: A.J. Ouellette, RB: Andrew Harris, WR: Eric Rogers, WR: Juwan Brescasin, WR: Markeith Ambles, OL: Philip Blake, OL: Justin Lawrence, DE: JaGared Davis, DE: Shane Ray, DT: Fabion Foote, LB: Chris Edwards, LB: Henoc Muamba, and DB: Shaq Richardson.
