April 9 -- Ottawa Renegades suspend operations.

April 12 -- The Renegades dispersal draft is held, but Kyries Hebert is passed over.

April 19 -- Bombers GM Brendan Taman plucks Hebert off waivers, just five minutes before he would have become a free agent. Hebert was in Cincinnati, mere minutes from signing with the NFL's Bengals.

April 20 -- Hebert's agent, J.R. Rickert, files a complaint with the CFL Players' Association about the validity of Winnipeg's waiver claim.

April 25 -- Hebert breaks his silence on the issue, telling the Sun he had been "misinformed" and "lied to" throughout the process and that "everything I need in my life is pointing me towards the NFL right now."

May 11 -- The CFLPA files an arbitration notice on Hebert's behalf.

May 21 -- The Bombers open training camp. Hebert is suspended when he doesn't report.

June 7 -- Hebert tells the Sun he wants to settle the disagreement without lawyers, saying "nobody wins" if it goes to arbitration. It's believed Hebert's camp was trying to convince the Bombers to sell his rights to an NFL team while retaining his CFL rights should he return north.

June 22 -- The date for the arbitration hearing is set for June 27 in Winnipeg.

June 23 -- The arbitration hearing is postponed until July.

June 27 -- Hebert and the Bombers agree to terms on the length of a new deal. It's now for two years and an option, as opposed to the original four years and an option.
