Chad Kackert was instrumental in the Toronto Argonauts capturing the 100th Grey Cup. Now he'll play a pivotal role in the club's title defence. The 5-11, 201-pound running back returned to the CFL club Friday shortly after becoming a free agent. Kackert signed a two-year contract with the Argos.

The B.C. Lions also figured prominently on what was busy opening day of CFL free agency, re-signing offensive tackle Jovan Olafioye -- the league's top lineman last year -- and all-star linebacker Solomon Elimimian. The club also signed former Edmonton defensive end Julius Williams.

B.C. also re-signed veteran receiver Paris Jackson and defensive back Korey Banks to extensions.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who surrendered a CFL-high 576 points last year, went shopping for defensive help and landed defensive end/linebacker Shomari Williams, defensive tackle Brian Bulcke and defensive back Evan McCollough.

Other notable moves included the Montreal Alouettes re-signing cornerback Seth Williams, Canadian fullback Dahrran Diedrick and defensive tackle Moton Hopkins and signing former Hamilton defensive back Geoff Tisdale.
