The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed six international players, five of whom who have experience with the team.
Leading the way is defensive end Ryan Mueller who dressed for four October games for the Tiger-Cats, started two and made two defensive tackles and a special teams tackle. He played college at Kansas State, but went undrafted in 2015 and spent time on the San Diego Chargers practice roster.
Quarterback Dane Evans, who spent the last month of the season on the club’s practice offer after being cut from the Philadelphia Eagles and joining his alma mater Tulsa University as an assistant coach, will be part of a quarterback contingent which is bound to sustain fan interest this spring. It’s not yet clear who among starter Jeremiah Masoli, now a free agent, former starter Zach Collaros, who has another year left on a big contract and former U.S. college phenom Johnny Manziel, will be in camp.
Running backs Rajion Neal, who was with five NFL teams over the past three years but never dressed for a regular season game, and Storm Johnson, who has played in six NFL games, starting one, will try to unseat incumbent Alex Green. Johnson played his college ball at the University of Central Florida and Miami and Neal spent his four years at Tennesse and was on the Tiger-Cats practice roster the final two weeks of the season.
Hamilton also signed former Wyoming linebackers Lucas Wacha and DJ May, who both spent time with the team last year. May had two terms on the practice roster and Wacha spent the final month of the season on the practice roster.
