HAMILTON — The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced today that the team has acquired non-import offensive lineman Brian Ramsay from the Toronto Argonauts in exchange for a fourth round selection in the 2011 CFL Canadian Draft and a conditional 2013 draft selection.
Ramsay was drafted by the Argonauts in the fifth round (39th overall) of the 2006 CFL Canadian Draft. He played the 2006 season at New Mexico University and then joined the Argos as a rookie in 2007. Over three seasons, he dressed in 51 games on the offensive line and made 34 starts – all at right tackle. The Victoria, B.C. native started the first 15 games of 2009 at right tackle for the Double Blue before suffering a season-ending knee injury during week 15 play against Edmonton.
