The Canadian Football League is scheduled to release the names of players Thursday who will become free agents in February, and the Riders will have 23 names on the list.
Leading the way is quarterback Darian Durant. He is looking to return to the football club, but to this point that has not happened as the two sides are at odds over a new deal.
Others on the list include quarterback Mitchell Gale, receiver Shawmaud Chambers, linebackers Jeff Knox Jr and Otha Foster III, and defensive lineman Willie Jefferson.
Teams have until mid-February to sign their free agents with players eligible to sign elsewhere if not signed by the date established by the league.
