Calgary Stampeders director of Canadian player personnel Miles Gorrell said he'd received few tempting trade offers as the midnight deadline approached yesterday.

"People want something for nothing," Gorrell said.

"In the last month the most other teams have offered are players who will be free agents Feb. 15."

Added GM Matt Dunigan: "We've made some calls about certain individuals but, for the most part, people are locked in with what they have."

Although teams can still trade after the deadline, swapped players can no longer be added to the active roster for this season.

WANNA JERSEY?: The Stampeders will stage the sixth annual Jerseys Off Our Backs promotion when they host the Toronto Argonauts Saturday, with 40 lucky fans taking home game-worn unis.

Random seat locations will be announced during the game and all 40 fans will be invited onto the field following the game to receive their autographed game-worn jersey from their designated player.

The Stamps will be giving away their 'third' black jerseys.
