Ticats, Als swap picks in late rounds of Sunday’s Draft

HAMILTON — The Montreal Alouettes and Hamilton Tiger-Cats completed a trade Monday that saw the two teams exchange late-round draft picks as well as a trio of roster players.

Hamilton acquired international defensive back Khalid Wooten, and fifth (38th overall) and sixth (47th overall) round picks in the 2017 CFL Draft from the Montreal Alouettes in exchange for international running back Cierre Wood, international defensive end Denzell Perine, and fifth (39th overall) and sixth (48th overall) round picks in the 2017 CFL Draft.

Wooten, 27, suited up in two games with the Alouettes in 2016, posting five defensive tackles and an interception. The 5-11, 200-pound native of San Bernardino, California, was selected by the Tennessee Titans in the sixth round, 202nd overall, in the 2013 National Football League Draft. He spent three seasons with the Titans (2013-15), dressing in three games in 2014. Prior to turning pro, Wooten played four seasons at the University of Nevada, Reno (2009-12), appearing in 51 games with 25 starts and registering 158 tackles, 10 interceptions, 29 passes defended, five forced fumbles, one quarterback sack and four tackles for loss.
