OTTAWA — The Ottawa REDBLACKS announced Thursday the signing of free agent receiver Tori Gurley.

A Rock Hill, S.C. native, Gurley had 36 catches for 509 yards and three TDs in 10 games with Toronto in 2016 before being released along with three other receivers in the final third of the year.  Shortly thereafter he signed a contract with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.  He only saw action in two contests, however, and caught four passes for 62 yards.

In 2015, he had 58 receptions for 791 yards and was tied for the CFL lead with 10 touchdowns.

Prior to joining the Argos in June of 2015, Gurley had spent the previous four seasons in the NFL, including time with the Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Oakland Raiders, Minnesota Vikings, San Diego Chargers, and Tampa Bay Buccaneer. In 27 games at South Carolina, he caught 76 passes for 910 yards and six touchdowns with the Gamecocks.
