CFL & Ottawa - Expansion Draft Plan Approved

The CFL announced its plan today for coming back to the nation's capital. It has been a long time coming but the league has a plan in place which will see Ottawa pick players from the league's other 8 teams in an Expansion Draft in December 2012 to start play in 2013. The Expansion Draft will have an Import and Non-Import component. The Ottawa franchise will also have special priorities in the Canadian player entry draft, including 4 picks in the 2012 draft.

No word yet on a team name for Ottawa, although available names include Stampeders, Blue Bombers and Alouettes.
