The Hamilton Tiger-Cats added a familiar face to its linebacking unit.
The Canadian Football League club announced Monday that Canadian Jarek Richards is returning after appearing in five games last season for Hamilton.
The five-foot-11, 200-pound native of Montreal was drafted by the Tiger-Cats in the fourth round of the 2021 CFL draft, 36th overall.
Richards played three seasons (2017-19) at Saint Mary’s University.
A touchdown pass from Dane Evans to Tim White with 19 seconds remaining gave the Tiger-Cats their first win of the season, a 25-23 decision against the winless Ottawa Redblacks on Saturday.
