No - teams don't know who is on what teams negotiation lists, and it puts the Esks in a bad position because...
"If a player listed in the story is out of college and pursuing pro opportunities ó for example, G.J. Kinne, who is with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League, or Dennis Dixon, currently on the Baltimore Ravensí practice roster in the National Football League ó were to become free agents and notified the Eskimos they would like to play in the CFL, Edmonton would have just 10 days to make a contract offer. If that didnít happen, the player would come off Edmontonís negotiation list and be fair game for the other seven teams in the league"
