Ticats acquire OL Colin Kelly from Elks

HAMILTON — Just four days before they meet in Week 4 action, the Edmonton Elks and Hamilton Tiger-Cats have made a trade.

The Tiger-Cats have acquired American offensive lineman Colin Kelly from the Elks in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2023 CFL Draft. Kelly started at right tackle in the first two games of this season in Edmonton, after missing the entire 2021 campaign due a torn pectoral muscle. The 32 year-old joins his third CFL team and second out East, as he started his CFL career with the Ottawa REDBLACKS in 2014.

The Tiger-Cats also announced that Global punter Joel Whitford has been released.
