The Hamilton Tiger-Cats added two bodies to its receiving core Wednesday (Aug. 10) as it looks to survive life without its top target for a while.
American Tony Brown and Canadian Tyler Turner have been added to the roster after spending time with the Ticats in training camp.
Brown, 24, has NFL experience with the Washington Football Team (2020-21) and Cleveland Browns (2020). The six-four, 195-pound native of La Mirada, California, played 22 games over two seasons at the University of Colorado (2018-19), registering 83 receptions for 980 yards and five touchdown receptions.
Brown began his collegiate career at Texas Tech University, where he started as a true freshman and played 24 games over two seasons (2015-16) before transferring to Colorado.
Turner, 25, was with the BC Lions in 2020. The six-two, 200-pound native of St. Albert, Alberta played 15 games over two seasons (2019-21) at the University of Alberta, registering 43 receptions for 655 yards and two receiving touchdowns.
Turner began his collegiate career at the University of British Columbia, where he played 12 games over his two seasons (2015-16), registering six receptions for 60 yards.
Meanwhile, Bralon Addison will be out indefinitely after being seen with crutches at Tim Hortons Field. He was carted off the field in Hamilton’s 34-20 defeat against the archrival Toronto Argonauts last weekend. The Argos’ Tarvarus McFadden tackled Addison following a 13-yard pass reception, and Addison immediately grabbed his left leg.
