FA13: Tiger-Cats, Eskimos continue to tinker


CFL.ca Staff

After a wild first day of free agency that saw 20 players either stay put or find new homes across the CFL, days two and three saw teams continue to tinker with their rosters, hoping to find someone that prove to be an instrumental part of their lineups.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats continued to shore up their defence, signing their fifth defensive player of free agency, while the Roughriders and Eskimos added some depth on the defensive side of the ball. The Als, meanwhile, opted to bring an old friend back into the nest.

Saskatchewan Roughriders
A day after they brought in Dwight Anderson and re-signed Tyron Brackenridge, the Saskatchewan Roughriders continued to beef up their defence, signing former Eskimos DB Weldon Brown, as well as Canadian linebacker Tristan Black. The Roughriders also decided to re-sign receiver Jordan Sisco. Read More.
