Ticats bring back Bralon Addison for two years after brief look in NFL

·1 min read

HAMILTON — The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed American wide receiver Bralon Addison to a two-year contract.

Addison returns to the team after getting cut by the NFL's Minnesota Vikings in training camp this year.

Addison was a CFL all-star last year, finishing in the top 10 in receptions, yards, touchdowns and targets.

His 95 receptions tied Tony Champion (1989) for the sixth-best single-season total in franchise history.

The five-foot-nine, 197-pound Addison has 103 catches for 1,349 yards and eight touchdowns in 20 games over two seasons with the Ticats.

"Not only is he a person of high character, but he happens to be a complete playmaker with a great work ethic. We believe he has several productive years ahead," Ticats coach Orlondo Steinauer said in a statement.
